Good Evening War Eagle Band Boosters! Hope you & your students are resting & recovering from a very busy & intense week of Summer Band! We know they did an awesome job, and the band directors are very pleased with their progress & how hard they’ve worked this week!
So on to Week #2! Please remember to read this email & Ms. P’s emails every week, so you as a parent can keep up with all the important information & upcoming events!
FIRST BAND BOOSTER MEETING TUES AUG 7TH:
It’s hard to believe it but our FIRST booster meeting is this Tuesday at 6:30pm! You do NOT want to miss out on this, so please plan to join us! We will all meet in the ORHS auditorium, then will split up into groups by letter (which will be on your handout) and we will have a “round robin” style breakout sessions so you can visit different rooms in the Fine Arts wing. There you will hear from our board members & committee leads to learn all about Band boosters & ways to get involved! Attending each room will earn you a ticket into the drawing for fabulous prizes at the end of the meeting.
Then as a final treat, parents will get to see an EXHIBITION performance by the Varsity Band!
“SNAP RAISE” FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN STARTS NOW:
Be sure to check with your student(s) to be sure they have the handout from this past Thursday.
Be sure you help them with the 20 emails to bring to this coming Thursday’s practice. This is an easy way to get support for our program, and we need ALL families to participate. Look for the info attached to Ms. P’s email from earlier today.
CHARMS ACCOUNTS UPDATED:
Please be sure to check your Charms accounts, where you will see your student’s most recent account activity updated. Also, Pavilion points have been applied through Aug 3rd. So keep in mind you must earn enough points to apply a full fair share installment to your students account. There may be some that have a $50 installment that cannot be posted until you earn another $50 for a full installment. If you have any questions regarding your account, please contact Terri Conley. firstname.lastname@example.org

PAVILION PROGRAM IN “IN FULL SWING”:
Thanks again to our awesome White Shirt committee for spear-heading this program and keeping it running smoothly and efficiently! Thanks to the parents who have volunteered and worked the past concerts for the summer months! It is fun but challenging, and we know how hot it’s been lately so a big thank you for braving the heat to keep this program moving forward with success!
Remember, there are still MANY shows to sign up for in Charms! Any questions or concerns, please contact our White Shirt crew. firstname.lastname@example.org
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR BAND OLYMPICS & PEP RALLY:
Please check in Charms for parent volunteer needs for these upcoming events. On Friday Aug 17th, we have lots of volunteer spots needed to help with band olympics! This is a fun event, and we need your help to make it a success. On Saturday Aug 18th, we will parent volunteers to help with spirit sales at the Meet the War Eagles Pep Rally!
Any questions, you may contact our event Co-Chairs Sandra Castaneda & Diana Garcia (updated email to come soon) and contact Vicky Roberts & Julie Christensen for spirit committee. email@example.com
Thanks for your continued support of our program, and remember we are all in this for the same goal-to make our student’s band/color guard experience THE BEST it can be!
GO WAR EAGLE BAND!
