The 'Cookout on the Patio" bbq fundraiser is underway. Here's how you can place your order:
Step #1: Any student interested in placing a pre-order come find me in the band room or room F2425.
Step #2: Any parent wanting to place a pre-order ask your son/daughter if they have a pre-order menu in their bookbag, if they don't, have them follow rule #1!
To make serving food quicker, each pre-order sheet has a number attached to it. At the May, 13th concert I will call groups of orders by number until all pre-orders are fulfilled. At which point on-site orders will begin. With this numbering system, I will not be posting order sheets on the web, anyone wanting to pre-order needs to come see me. Pre-orders will close May, 8th. Attached to this post is a look of the 'Cookout on the Patio" menu, we hope to see there!!
At this time, everyone (students and adults) planning to travel should print and fill out the attached contract. This does not commit you to the trip but you do need to be aware that ALL payments are non-refundable. The form is due back on Wednesday, April 22. The trip deposit is due Monday, May 4. For more information, check out the "2016 Trip Information" tab on the main menu.
Band has been offered the opportunity to work the concession stand for JV/V Baseball games this spring. We will be working out of a trailer that will be located at the baseball fields. We only need 2-3 people to work since the trailer is so small. The PTO will guarantee at least a $50 take-home total (not per person but total...although if you have your family work, all $50 will go towards your band student). Below are the dates and you will need to open 30 minutes before game time.
Friday April 3 3:00 Highland Park Varsity
Friday April 10 3:30 Seaman JV
Friday April 17 3:00 Manhattan JV/V
Tuesday April 21 3:00 Junction City Varsity
Friday May 8 3:30 Shawnee Heights JV/V
We have the opportunity yet again this year to send a limited number of students to participate in the Kansas Masonic Band, which performs at the Shrine Bowl each year. This year it is held at Fort Hays State University on July 25th, and the band camp will start a few days before that. Sponsorships will awarded to students on a limited basis, with preference given to upperclassmen. Check out the Shrine Bowl website and the WaRu Band Facebook page for more details.
Attached are the minutes for the band parent council meeting that was held on 3/3/15.
