Parents and Students, 


The students did a terrific job on Friday, I was very pleased with their performance on the field and in the stands. Thanks again to all of the parent volunteers that helped out at the game on Friday. This week we will be taking a pep band to Gulfport. Students signed up to attend the pep band game through a link on Google classroom. There are a few spots available if they want to attend. 


We will be starting a fundraiser next week that has the potential to raise $8,000-$10,000 for our program. We will be selling stainless steel insulated tumblers with logos for professional and NCAA sports teams on them. These tumblers are equivalent of YETI/Orca type products and we are selling them for $25 each (we will make $10 of each tumbler we sell). This fundraiser will be a 59-minute fundraiser that we will hold after the rehearsal (6pm-7pm) on Monday, September 9th. We need everyone to participate to make this fundraiser successful - details will be discussed tomorrow at the Booster Meeting. 


Tomorrow we will have our September Band Booster Meeting at 6:00 in the HS Band Hall. The main topic of the meeting will be Groovin' in the Grove which is coming up NEXT MONTH! We need everyone to be at the meeting so that the event will be well planned and well run. 


Pep band members will wear dri-fit shirt and shorts for the game on Friday. We will leave campus at 4:30 and we should be back between 11:30 and midnight.
