Booster Meeting Topics

All families are invited to our first booster meeting on Thursday 8/25. We need to get a coalition of parents together to help with events this year. Snacks and juice will be provided. Topics to be discussed:

  • Updates on recent big purchases and expenses.
  • Fundraisers this fall to cover St. George expenses and student fees.
  • Volunteer positions for the Highland Exhibitional on 9/17
  • Chaperone lists for our competition trips this fall. Please plan on attending, or e-mail emersoca@sd25.us if you can’t make the meeting and plan on being a chaperone.
  • We will take a vote on whether to stay in St. George for 3 nights and come back Sunday morning, or stay for 2 nights and come back on Saturday morning, skipping BOA. If you feel strongly one way or another, please plan on attending.

Band Sponsorships

Students were given information on fundraising sponsorships for the band for the 2016-17 school year. We are looking for individual, family, and local business donations to help with our budget. All sponsor forms need to be returned by Friday, August 26.

2016 “A Child’s Imagination” Show Shirts

Shirts for the 2016 marching show will be arriving on Friday 8/26. All marching band students have already paid for them with their camp fees and will receive one that day. Any student who is not in marching band should purchase a shirt for $10 to be used as a pep band shirt for the 16-17 school year. Any additional shirts are $10 each and can be ordered through Mr. Emerson.
