KICK-OFF BOOSTER MEETING THIS WEDNESDAY 6:30PM
We have our first official booster meeting of the year this Wednesday, September 5th at 6:30PM in the Band Room! All parents are encouraged to attend to get important information about upcoming events and fundraisers. In addition to planning for our biggest Gahr Invitational Field Tournament yet, we will be coordinating details for our own production - including uniform sewing and prop building. Don't miss out on this opportunity to connect with your child.
MOD PIZZA DINNER NIGHT THIS THURSDAY 9/6
Support the band and color guard by eating at MOD Pizza this Thursday! Show the flyer and a portion will be donated to the Gahr Instrumental Music Program. See you there!
Popcornopolis orders should be ready for pick up after practice this Friday 9/7. It is the student's responsibility to distribute the orders to the people they sold it to. As a reminder, the first 8 bags sold were mandatory (or $35 profit/donation). The profit (50% of the price) from any bags sold after that went to student accounts. This year, students earned approximately $7,000 in profit towards accounts! Way to go!!
FIELD SHOW PROGRAM ADS
THE DEADLINE FOR ALL FIELD SHOW PROGRAM ADS IS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH. 100% of the profit from field show ads goes to your student account! Many local businesses are looking for ways to advertise to the community. This is also a great opportunity to put a "shout-out" for your son/daughter in the program! Click here to download the form.
The 4th annual Gahr Invitational Field Tournament is approaching quickly, and this year we have over 20 high schools signed up! Please help us make this event successful by donating concession items. Click here to see the list and to sign up: www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4daeab29aafc1-2018
