The band will be returning from band camp Wednesday, July 30th around 5pm. Please remember that the permission slip and medical release form must be turned in prior to leaving for camp.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
