Dear Ryle Band Families,
Things to call to your attention for the coming week:
CONCESSIONS HELP BADLY NEEDED!
This weekend is our last competition of the regular season! We will be at Tates Creek near Lexington. However, there is also a varsity home football game the evening of Saturday, October 14. We are in desperate need of people to work concessions that night. If you are not planning to go to Tates Creek, please help out at concessions! Sign up on the Charms calendar and if you have questions about concessions, please contact Matthew Hafley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our 3C fundraiser is well underway! We have had 30 students sell 5 or more items thus far, and these students will be receiving full-sized candy bars.
As a reminder:
- Students will sell for 1 more week
- Order forms due on October 17
- Online ordering is also available; see the attachment for details. School code is LMRHS-IS
- Products will be delivered around the second week of November
- The goal is that each student sell 10 items
- Top 5 sellers will receive dinner with Mr. Craig and Mr. Proctor
- Each student selling 15 items or more will receive a very large bag of gummy bears
- Students selling 15 items or more will go into a drawing for a grand prize of a TV
The money made from this fundraiser will go towards capital purchases.
We realize that this is a crazy busy time for the kids, and wish that they didn’t have to juggle this too, but… they do. It will take parental support to make this happen. If you’d rather not purchase any of the fine products that we are selling, we will gladly take a donation instead.
Questions about this sale should be directed to Denise Coop at email@example.com or Beth Webster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HELP WITH TREAT BAGS FOR STATE COMPETITION
We are in need of donations for the snack bags that will be handed out at the State Band Competition. To help make sure we have enough of each item, we are asking that you sign up on Charms for specific donations. All items should be dropped off in the donation box or placed in the booster closet by October 24th. Please mark all items as “snack bag donations”.
Also, on October 26th from 5:30-7:00 pm, we will be sorting all of the donations into the bags and would greatly appreciate your help in preparing the treats for our amazing band and staff. If you would like to help, please sign up on Charms.
Questions about treat bags for the state competition should be directed to Suzanne Strawn at Suzanne.email@example.com
We’re coming up on the final stretch! Let’s have a great few weeks of rehearsals and show everyone what the Ryle Band is capable of!
