ROSWELL BAND SPIRIT WEAR STORE

Show your Roswell Band pride and support our program with our 2020 Spirit Wear! The online store is now open but will close on December 30th. All the orders will be processed after the shop closes. Items will be shipped directly to your home rather than the school since many students are virtual. We have t-shirts, hoodies, hats, fleece bottoms and more!


Here’s the website link: https://roswellband.itemorder.com/


We’re also offering an electronic gift card! This way you can have something to wrap up for your student for the holiday, and they can go online and shop afterwards. Remember, all orders must be placed no later than December 30!

LAST CALL FOR PERSONAL FITNESS WAIVERS


If you still haven’t submitted your Personal Fitness Waiver, they are due by next Friday, 12/18.


You must participate in TWO complete seasons of marching band (includes Pep Band) to waive out of the physical education course required. Two separate waivers are required to meet the graduation requirement. The waiver is due immediately following the completion of a season. Forms are located on the school website and must be signed by Mr. Moon or Mr. Long. Do not delay!

USE AMAZON SMILE AND SUPPORT THE BAND!

You could make a HUGE difference to the Roswell Band this holiday season by using AmazonSmile when you purchase gifts. AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of all eligible purchases to our organization when you shop! It’s really easy and can make a big difference in operating expenses.

Remember to select “ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL BAND BOOSTER ASSOCIATION, INC.” as your organization!

MIDDLE SCHOOL LIAISONS REQUESTED

The Band Directors need two parent volunteers in January-March who can help us with our recruiting efforts at Elkins Pointe Middle School and Crabapple Middle School. We’d love to have one parent from each school, preferably with a middle school student in Mr. Wilson’s program and Mr. Melton’s program. We need a little help with communications such as emails and delivering flyers. Contact admin@roswellband if you can help. Thanks!
