Hi Band Families-
First, thank you so much to Jodi McGinnis and her team for working so hard to plan and facilitate a wonderful Marching Band Banquet last Friday! What a fun event, and a fantastic way to remember our season; students and adults had a great time sharing fellowship and memories, and the event was capped by fantastic tunes from DJ Brian Fry and the raffling off of the miniature versions of Charlotte and her sisters. What a super night!
This week, we have the rescheduled Select Band auditions on Thursday, January 25 at Dixie Heights High School. Audition times were circulated last week; be sure to ask your student about his/her audition time!
Are you someone who loves eating out and would like to help the band, but don’t have a lot of time? We are in need of a What’s for Dinner? Wednesdays coordinator. This is a relatively easy, but impactful way to earn money for the band (and, let’s be real- you can justify giving yourself an excuse for not making dinner!). If you are interested in learning what is entailed with this position, please contact Laurel Dickman at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have updated bylaws that need your review and approval! Attached, please find a copy of the proposed revised bylaws; the first page is a summary of the changes that were made from the previous version. We are having a Special Meeting of the Association in the Media Center (Library) at Ryle on February 13 at 6:30 PM to vote on the new bylaws and formally adopt them into practice. 6:30 PM also happens to be the exact time that kids need to be dropped off for Pep Band… so park, drop your student off, and come to the Ryle Media Center/Library briefly to vote on the bylaws before heading off to enjoy the rest of your evening. We must have a quorum to be able to vote, so your attendance is VERY important! Please make it a priority to attend- it won’t take much of your time, we promise. Questions about the bylaws? Contact Ryan Royse at email@example.com
Bingo is really ramping up! Last weekend, we had 130 players, as opposed to the 90 we averaged during the 4th quarter. Things are starting to get busy, and we could use your help! Questions about Bingo can be directed to Shawn King at firstname.lastname@example.org
