Cookie Dough Fundraiser: The cookie dough fundraiser will begin September 17th and end on October 1st. More information to come soon so tell your customers to be ready!
Trojan Band: Students will stay after school and walk over to the high school band room with Ms. Menendez. The band trailer will come and pick up our instruments and take them over to the HS for us. If you are able to volunteer around 4:30 to help set up for dinner and help me in the stands, let me know. Once we unload and warm up we will walk to the HS stadium and play for the first half of the game. At half time we will come back into the HS band room to eat dinner and prepare to get picked up to go home.
Students will have access to their phones and will be able to tell you what time they are able to get picked up. With a running clock some games and a normal clock for others, we have a difficult time giving an exact pick up time but I will estimate around 7 PM. Thank you for your patience with that!
8th Grade Night: Itinerary coming out soon! Please remember that all 8th graders are required to attend. Students will stay after school with me and will walk over with me to the high school band room. Students will attend a small rehearsal and then we will feed them and give them an awesome t-shirt to wear! Students may wear jeans and tennis shoes and will get into the football game for free as a marching band guest that night! This ends up being the highlight to many of our students during their 8th grade year and I am excited for our 8th graders this year to experience it!
District Honor Band: Please continue encouraging your students to attend our DHB sessions District Honor band will keep your kids focused, help them grow and will look incredible on their transcripts and resumes going forward. Let me know if you have any questions.
I look forward to another amazing week! Let me know if you have any questions.
