Good Morning Band Family!

A huge thank you to each and every parent, student, and grandparent that volunteered and helped at the Craft Show this weekend!   Without each and everyone of you, the Craft show would not be the great success it is!  

Pancake Breakfast planning meeting is on Tuesday November 17th at 7 PM at Artisan Coffee @ Albrecht and Canton Road.  Please try to come out and help plan this fun morning.

Your student will be receiving a packet this week with a combination of local retailers discount cards.  Each card sells for $10.00.  Please ask your student about this new fundraiser.  If you have questions, please contact Cathy Isenhart @ 330-388-0281.

The Santa Parade for downtown Akron is on Saturday, November 28th.  Step off is at 11:00 AM.  Please try to pick up a Santa hat for your student at one of the Dollar stores in the next two weeks.  They will be wearing Santa hats in place of their traditional helmets that day with their uniforms, to add a more festive look, and can also wear them for the Holiday Pancake breakfast on December 5th.  Please stay tuned for call times and location for that morning.

If your student is interested in Solo and Ensembles, please have them see Mr. Grom as soon as possible.

Good Morning Band Families!!!

If you are loaning a dolly or a cart to use at the craft show please put your name on it so it is easily identifiable to return to your family at the end of the day.

Hot dogs,  hot dog buns, sloppy joe mix and hamburger buns can be dropped off anytime during Friday set up from 3:30-6:00 PM in the cafeteria.  Raffle baskets donations should also be dropped off during that time.  

Students should plan to stay after school on Friday until around 6-630 PM.  The more help we have the quicker set up will go!

Please ask your student if they have signed up to cover a shift.  Yesterday, as of 10 AM there were still 30 students that have yet to sign up for a shift.  If they have a prior commitment please let us know so they can be excused.  Sign up sheets are hanging in the band room.   This is our largest fundraiser of the year and we truly need all the help we can get to make it successful!

There is a band booster meeting Thursday evening at 7PM in the band room and parents are encouraged to attend.

Thank you all in advance for helping !
