Cookie Dough Delivery - Thursday, October 21st (3:30-4:30pm) *NEW DATE*

Cookie dough pick-up has been moved to Thursday, October 21st due to delivery and labor shortages within the Cash Cow company. The company simply did not have the product and labor to make sure our order was ready for this week. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Students need to report to the cafeteria after school on Thursday, October 21st to pick up their cookie dough. Students with large orders will need a parent pick for this day. All orders must be picked up by 4:30pm as the band directors do not have the ability to store frozen items at school.

Wii "Just Dance" Party - Friday, October 22nd

Since the band exceeded the band director's goal of raising $5,000.00 from the cookie dough fundraiser the band directors are giving the entire band program a Wii dance party during band classes on Friday, October 22nd. Students will be able to bring a clear drink and snacks to enjoy during the class while we take turns playing Wii Just Dance (controls will be sanitized in between each player). We look forward to celebrating this amazing achievement and the opportunities it will provide for our students and program! Thank you to everyone for their donations and/or fundraising efforts!

Private Lessons!

Plano ISD requires students who use district-owned instruments to pay a yearly $85 fee to help cover the costs of cleaning and normal wear and tear. Reduced fees are already calculated in the system if your child receives free/reduced lunch. Due to COVID the district is only allowing the fee to be paid online via Rycor (same system used for lunch payment). If you do not see your child's fee, please email Mrs. May. If you need special arrangements email Mrs. May.
