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 them carefully and submit the back page to the box by this 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.

Thank you to those of you who have already turned them in!

MB No Football Game This Week
We do not have a football game this week. Please work on homework and rest so that we can have a great stadium rehearsal on Saturday!

MB Lamonica Day Schedule • Saturday, September 30
This Saturday our Marching Band students will be rehearsing in Lamonica Stadium and performing for all of our family, friends and supporters! All wind and colorguard students will report to Clovis West at 8:45am Saturday morning, and all battery and pit members will report to Clovis High at 8:45am. Winds and colorguard will ride a provided bus (students may drive to Clovis High on their own, but students may not ride with other student) to Clovis High at 11:15am. Lunch will be provided for all students at Clovis High. Rehearsal will conclude at 5pm. Students will be able to eat dinner with their families at Clovis High. At 6pm the students will be running through the show in uniform and doing a showcase performance. The event will conclude at approximately 8:30pm when the truck is done being loaded. Everyone needs to be picked up at Clovis High, we will not be returning to Clovis West.

MB Lamonica Day Family Dinner & Performance • Saturday, September 30
Every year at Lamonica we host a Showcase Performance for our family, friends, and supporters! Our students are provided lunch, but not dinner because we want them to be able to eat dinner with their families. This year several restaurants will be selling food at the stadium. Please support our program by purchasing food from these vendors as we get 25% of the profit! The student dinner break will be at 5pm, however, food will be available starting at 4:30pm. Please purchase food for you and your student at this time to help avoid congestion at the food stands. At 6pm, our students will be in uniform and ready to show everyone what they have been working on! They will run through some chunks of the show and finish with a showcase performance run through. Please invite family, friends, and anyone else that would like to come! Arrive at 4:30pm to buy some dinner and support our students!

Vendors That Will Be At Lamonica Day
• Snap Dog - Hot dogs and Frito boats
• Arsenios - Tacos, Burritos, and Nachos
• Chosen Yogurt - Ice cream bars rolled in your favorite toppings, Scooped ice cream/Frozen Yogurt, and Ice pops

We are hoping to have a few more options available as well.
