We have started section rehearsals for the concert bands, we have a sectional schedule posted for all three bands. Attendance is MANDATORY!!!!!!! And for a grade!

The trip should have been paid in full January 15th, you HAVE to keep up with this!!!!!!!!!

The World’s Finest Chocolate fundraiser is still going. We have $2 continental almonds. I will get some more 1 dollar bars soon, TBA.

Don’t forget about band fees!!!!!  See Mr. Morris-Brame to make arrangements. Instrument insurance payments for the fall are due now. Please make sure you are paying out the rest of your band activity fees as well; many people paid only half and need to still pay the other $150.00, remember we have the lowest band activity fees in the district but we need those fees to function as a band program!

I am going to put you on the SWHS fine list if you haven’t made your payments or made arrangements to make your payments by the end of the week! That’s THIS Friday folks!
