From Mr. Clemente

Dear Winter Park Band families,


Mr. Smith and I are looking forward to all three bands' performances at Concert MPA this week! With only a few rehearsals left to prepare our performances, everyone must be doing their part to make this the best performance yet!


Concert Band and Symphonic Band are still in need of at least two more chaperones per band. Since it is a work day I know it is difficult to be able to take time away, but if you can chaperone the students and I would greatly appreciate it. It is an eye-opening experience if you have yet to attend a Concert MPA - especially watching the students sight-read!


As we approach the deadline for all financial obligations coming due on Wednesday, March 4, I ask that every Band family log into Charms and check their financial account. All Door-2-Door fundraising credit has been added to each student's account. If a student has enough credit to cover a full payment, that credit will be automatically transferred to cover the full payment. All families, but especially families of current senior Band students, should check their account on Charms before making the final Fair Share payment to avoid over-paying. Thank you for your attention to this!


Let's have a great and successful performance-filled week!
