Hello War Eagle Band/Color Guard

Congratulations on another great game day!!!!!!   It was a smooth day for our first Away Game!  Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped everything run so smoothly!!!   WAY TO GO!!!!!!

1.  We just wrapped up our SNAP-RAISE fundraiser and we did AWESOME!   We met our goal by raising $36,000 with 77\% participation!!!!!!!!!!  That means we will receive approx. $27,720.   Thank you for a job well done!!!!   And thank you to all our supporters!!!!!

2.  Tuesday, Sept. 11 is our Booster Club meeting at 7pm in the auditorium!   Information regarding the upcoming Contest at Friendswood and Disney trip information will begiven.  In addition, we will be getting information about our final fundraiser “1st Annual Mattress Fund Raiser”.  We hope to see everyone there.

3.  Saturday, Sept. 15 will be Flag Return day.   If you distributed a flag route we will need you to pick it up and return all Flags to the the storage unit between 8am – 11am.   Please go into Charms and sign up.   If you are unable to pick up your route…PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU FIND A REPLACEMENT TO DO IT.
