Fan Pledge

Here's a great idea to add to your student's FanPledge total, even after the event! Lauren Boyse, a band senior and member of the leadership team, made a great video to email out to friends and family and to post on her parents' social media. This is a fabulous way to get donors without even asking! See Lauren's fabulous video below and then share this link with your friends and family: https://event.fan-pledge.com/27489

Thank you!!!

Thanks so much to all of you who helped with sorting, organizing, and distributing the accessories. So much work! Thanks to our uniform accessories coordinator, Julie Kleck, as well as Michelle Bender, Maré Amy, Megan Ayers, Jen Ditto, Tracey Stone, and Karen Boyse.


Thanks also to the many parents who came in to ask questions and chat. Just talking with you all about how exciting we are for our kids to make music together felt so normal and fun!


Also, thanks so much to all of you who signed up to help at uniform fittings! I'm sad that I won't be with you on Saturday. Our oldest son is headed back to school, so my husband and I will be moving him back to his college campus.


Thanks also to Baby Miles and his mommy, just because.

Calendar

As always, please utilize the calendar so that you are aware of all of our band activities!
