New This Week…

Voluntary Pledge Forms
Voluntary Pledge Forms for Orchestra, Non-Marching Concert Band, and Marching Band were handed out in class. Please read these carefully and submit the back page to the box by Friday, September 29th. The money collected from voluntary donations will allow us to run the best version of our program by providing staff and supplies to benefit and support your student. We rely on your honest answers on this form to budget the way we spend or do not spend funding for the activities your students are involved in. 

Additionally, in the future, your student will receive a trip form that outlines travel opportunities (Marching Band coming to you very soon). These travel costs are not associated with the voluntary pledge form and will be considered separately to assess our travel abilities. Some students who also participate in winter activities will see pledge forms for those activities in the future. Please keep this in mind while filling out the voluntary donation form. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Chesi.
