From Mr. Clemente

Dear Winter Park Band families,


Congratulations to the SOTW on their performance at this past Friday's Senior Night football game! That type of performance is a great stepping stone toward our upcoming Marching Band MPA performance on 11/2. Thank you to all or our parents who helped out with the sashed, flowers, cards, and cutouts. Your really helped make it a special evening!


The Addams Family, this year's fall musical, will be giving performances this week on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Each day has an evening performance at 7:30 PM, and there is a 2:00 PM matinee on Saturday. Tickets can be found at https://teachtix.com/wphs/the-addams-family-a-new-musical-comedy Please come out and support our students and all their hard work and preparation!



Butter braid order forms were sent home with students this past Wednesday. Orders are due with the order form and payment(cash, check made out to WPHS band or school pay) by 5 PM this Friday October 25th. Remember, your band student benefits directly from each Butter braid sold! If you have any questions feel free to contact me at Ribaric.ramily@gmail.com.


TRUNK-R-TREAT - Our annual Trunk-r-Treat will take place after rehearsal on Tuesday, October 29. All parents are invited to park next to our D-Lot rehearsal space after marching band rehearsal, decorate their trunks and pass out candy for the students. The students will be able to dress in costume for marching band rehearsal that afternoon - be creative (as long as you can still rehearse in costume)!


An itinerary for Marching Band MPA on Saturday, November 2 can be found in your email. It was sent out last Sunday, 10/13. Please also make note of our Friday Marching Band Rehearsal on 11/1. This is our final rehearsal before Marching Band MPA.


Let's have a great week!

BAND BOOSTER PRESIDENT MESSAGE

Week of October 20, 2019

Hello everyone. Thank you so much to all of the volunteers for the Senior Night game. Congratulations to the Seniors! We are still in need of chaperones for our last regular season game (away against Timber Creek) on Friday. We have so many committed volunteers who have given their time for many games this year, so if you have not volunteered for a game, please see the Charms sign up and consider helping. The band cannot travel to home and away games without the safety and security volunteers provide for our students.


Butter Braid order forms were sent home with your student on Wednesday. If you did not receive one, there is a scanned version attached to the email from Heather Ribaric. There are also extra forms in the band room. Payment and completed forms are due no later than this Friday, October 25, 2019, by 5 PM. Thank you! If you have questions, please contact Heather Ribaric at ribaric.family@gmail.com.
