Band Notes 1/8 to 1/15

Happy Sunday evening everyone! It's always tough to get back into the routine of the early mornings for school, but is also nice to be productive each day and more importantly, seeing everyone again :D


This Friday, January 12, we'll have 2 basketball games to play for (1 boys and 1 girls). Basketball pep band is a favorite for many of our students. It's a great time to hang and build friendships, play fun pop music, it's indoors, and typically involves lots of snacking :D. Please join us, reporting at 5pm on Friday night!


With winter break in the rearview mirror and the new year rolling, we'll need to begin paying more attention to the details of the So Cal 24 trip! PLEASE bookmark THIS LINK to our "So Cal 2024 Information Guide" For this week regarding the trip, PLEASE take a moment to read through pages 5-8 regarding Expenses and Funding. Highlights include: Philosophy, Making Payments, Needing Financial Assistance, House Bill 1660 Qualifiers, Accessing Funds from Bandwagon Fundraisers and more.

Highlights of In-Class Discussion (all with more specifics in the information guide) -

  • March 1st is the ultimate due date!

  • House Bill qualifiers pay as much as you possibly can and help with fundraising!

  • Students in need of financial help pay as much as you possibly can and help with fundraising! Sadly, inability to not pay full amount could result in no travel but we will do our best to help!

  • We are definitely at risk of trips of this nature not happening (including this one) if folks don't pay the per person charges or help us make the money to fill that gap!

IMPORTANT DATE - March 1st. Although staying current with the payment schedule is very helpful for our deposits and other payments being sent, March 1st is where things become critical. Unfortunately, travelers not fully paid by March 1st will need to be released. There is very little wiggle room after this date as the majority of our travel vendors require payment 60 days prior to travel. Having funds in hand by March 1st allows our district time to process those invoices, write checks, and mail payment. I will have conversation with individuals in this situation prior to release.

As always, please reach out to me with questions specific/unique to your circumstances.
