There are opportunities to sign up for volunteers in Charms, so please do so right away!

BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL CONTEST JACKETS ARE BEING DISTRIBUTED:
Please refer to Ms. P’s email to the band earlier today regarding the care & specific washing details for these beautiful contest jackets. We cannot wait to see how the show will look this Friday! And since there are no extra jackets available, it is IMPERATIVE that you maintain excellent care of your student’s show jacket during the entire marching season.
FLAG RETURN FOR LABOR DAY/PATRIOTS DAY WRAPPED UP SMOOTHLY:
Our Flag Committee would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all who turned out this past Saturday to help return flags! While some volunteers placed and/or picked up 2 routes, most everyone placed only 1 route. This means we can work easier & faster by having the work load spread out. There are still opportunities to assist with flag committee if interested. Any questions? Please contact Melissa Lunkwitz. email@example.com
PROP BUILDING DAY WAS A SUCCESS:
A BIG thanks to ALL the parents/volunteers who came out this past Saturday to help with finishing the front screens for our beautiful marching show. It was very short notice, but we appreciate you very much for helping out! Keep in mind, we still need to work on the back screens and the trellis for the show, so stay tuned for additional dates/times. At least we got the front screens all finished so our students can begin working with them & perfecting it for the show!
MATTRESS FUNDRAISER SEPT 22:
Please be sure you are spreading the word about our Mattress Fundraisers NOW!
Ms. P attached a flyer to her band email earlier today. Please feel free to print & SHARE with your friends, family, co-workers etc. That is ALL we need to do is get the word out to our community. Milcah Ray & her amazing team from CFS/Mattress Firm will do the rest! Hope to see you there!
