Winter Guard Help Wanted

Tony London is allowing the Winter Guard to borrow his trailer to take to our competitions instead of us having to pay money to rent one.  Tony is able to pull the trailer to the competitions on February 8th and 29th.  However, he needs someone who has a 2 inch ball on their vehicle to pull the trailer on February 15th and February 16th if we make it to finals.  Help is also needed for March 7th, 14th, and 21st.  Please call or text Denise Shape at 812-552-1079 and let her know when you can help.  

8-10 volunteers are also needed for the tarp crew to help get the tarp on and off the gym floor at competitions.  Contact Denise if you are able to help.

 A Note from Mr. Munoz and Band Fees

As we begin preparing for a stellar 2020 marching season, we are still struggling to collect our 2019 fees. Currently we're still over $10,000 in missing fees.

If we can't collect these fees we will have to dramatically scale back our show designs for our kids which in turn will reduce our ability to continue to stay competitive in Class A.

If you'd like to make a donation to our scholarship fund to help struggling families feel free to contact me directly.

Thanks everyone for your continued support of our youth in this community!

The 4th Band Fee installment is due Friday, February 7th (see below).   If you have not made the first three payments, please do so ASAP . Thank you to those that have already made their payments.   If writing a check, please write in the memo line your band student’s name.  If you write a check, please place it in the Scrip box outside the band room in an envelope marked “Band Fees”.  See below for other ways to make your payment.

Booster Meetings

Perhaps you do not realize as parents and guardians of our CN band, you are all Booster Members.  A booster meeting is not a meeting for only Booster Officers.  In booster meetings you will learn about the program, as well as upcoming events and projects regarding the band.  Meetings are a great place to ask any questions you may have, or if you have any suggestions that you would like to share.  If you are wanting to help out or volunteer but do not know where to start, meetings are a great place to find the information you need to help with your decision.  During these meetings we, as parents and guardians, come together to make this the best possible program it can be.  The more parent involvement we have, the better program we will become. Booster meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month (unless there is a conflict) and the next meeting is Thursday, February 13th, at 6:00 PM (please note the time change).  All parents are invited and encouraged to attend.  We would love to see you there!
