This Week In Band
I hope that you are all enjoying the semester! Thank you all for your efforts and help with the Parada del Sol - I heard it was a HUGE success and the Firebird Marching Band was a fan favorite!
This week/Next Week:
Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 15 - We congratulate our musicians who successfully auditioned for the Regional Honor Band and Orchestra!! These individuals will join others on Friday for a full day of rehearsals that will culminate in a concert on Saturday afternoon, beginning at 3 p.m. at Central High School! Great work for all - and thank you for representing the Chaparral Band Program during this wonderful event!
Monday, February 17 - Presidents' Day - No School
Friday, February 21 to Saturday, February 22 - All Jazz Band students to NAU (overnight) for the NAU Jazz Festival.
Please mark your calendars to join us for the next Band Booster meetings! This semester the meetings will be the third Wednesdays of each month and we only have a couple more!!
For Wednesday, February 19, the meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the Henglefelt's home. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring a favorite dessert or appetizer for snacking during the meeting!! This meeting will be to review the Booster Bylaws, officer structure and needs and work on the budget details for next year.
For the future: The Wednesday, March 19 meeting will include officer nominations with an electronic elections vote - similar to last year.
As you know, we are losing many of our parent volunteers this year. YOUR HELP and willingness to actively participate in a leadership role for our band program and wonderful students is needed!! We hope to see you at next week's meeting!
The Wednesday, April 16 meeting will focus on the transition of officers and preparation for next year's efforts!!
Thank you for all your support - please let us know of any questions! Also, please contact me or other Booster Leadership team members if you are interested in an officer role next year!

Want to help pay for your child's 2014 band fees with no out of pocket costs to you?
A few parents have been working on a fundraising opportunity that allows us to raise funds while we spend money on things we actually need!
The exciting part of this program is that each family has the opportunity to utilize funds they raise to offset their band expenses.
The holidays are approaching and using script (Gift Cards) to pay for items you will purchase over the next several months is a great way for everyone to benefit.
Please contact email@example.com for more information.
