Dear Ryle Band Families-

Tomorrow is Wednesday, September 14- don’t cook! Support the Ryle Band by ordering from Papa John’s for this month’s What’s for Dinner Wednesday! You can order by phone or online with the code- the attached flyer has all of the details, but you don’t need to present the flyer with your order. Just make sure you give them the appropriate code (listed on the flyer) with your order.

The Ryle Tournament of Bands is quickly approaching! We need your help to make the RTOB a success. Adult sign ups for hospitality and volunteer needs are in Charms; your support is appreciated!  The sign-up process for student volunteers for RTOB is being handled differently than the adult sign-up process. This year, each section has been assigned a designated job for RTOB.  The list of jobs will be in the band room so please sign up according to your section.  Please note: You must sign out in order to receive your volunteer hours.  This is your responsibility.  If you do not sign out then you will not receive volunteer hours.

If you are sponsoring a trophy, payment is due to Robin Erpenbeck on Thursday, September 15 along with any dedication of one sentence. More information on dress code for trophy presenters is coming next week.

Finally, Kona Ice will be coming to Ryle on Friday towards the end of rehearsal for our hard-working kids. Prices for their ice cups range from $3-$5, so remember to bring money and support Kona Ice!
