Notes and Reminders for July 25th — tomorrow

A few notes as we prepare for a big day tomorrow

• Band Camp will be over tomorrow at 3 pm and students can be picked up at that time to give everyone time to get a shower and something to eat before DCI.

• All those going to DCI with us need to be at the school no later than 5 pm. Roll call will be at 5 pm.

• Wear appropriate clothing to be outside.

• Eat something before you come and/or bring money for concessions.

• DCI is at Vanderbilt this year (instead of MTSU) — just FYI

• Our estimated time back to SCHS after DCI is midnight. Students will be asked to text or call parents when we leave Nashville to give you a 30 minute warning of our arrival so you won’t have to sit out in the parking lot waiting all night.

Other Reminders: there are no events scheduled for Saturday, July 26th, as previously noted. Media Day and the Band Preview Show have been moved to later dates in August. Check the calendar on our website for more info.

We will have band camp on Tuesday and Thursday next week from 8 am to 5 pm.

Spirit Night at Texas Roadhouse in Hendersonville, Monday, July 28th — 4 pm to 10 pm

Regular after school rehearsals begin on Tuesday, August 5th, and will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 6 pm

Kroger Card Changes and a few reminders

From our treasurer:

"We received notification late last week that our current Kroger card fundraiser will cease to work as of September 1st. Their new program will run similar to the Publix program. You will go on line and register your Kroger plus card and then we will get a percentage of what is spent. This money will now go to the band as a whole, which is still great, but will no longer go into individual accounts. For whatever reason most states can register for this on line but Nashville, TN area has a specific “person” they must talk to and I am still waiting on her to return my calls/emails. So more info will follow on the new system as soon as I have it. For now I do know the last day for me to order cards is August 15th. The last day for you to reload cards is August 30th and the last day you can use the card and it benefit your students account is August 31st.

Please respond to this e-mail or reach out on Facebook if you need one or more. I know this is extremely disappointing to a lot of us. We will all be working hard to get more fund raisers going and if anyone knows of any programs similar to the one Kroger had, please let us know!"

Reminders: Keep selling Cookie Dough! We have two weeks to take as many cookie dough orders as we can.

Friends and family from out of town can order online at www.littlelambsfundraising.com and enter the code EBXVW. Shipping will be charged as it will ship directly to them. Please keep track of friends and family who order online to make sure you get the credit in your account.

Thursday, July 17 – Maggie Moo’s in Hendersonville from 5 pm to 9 pm. We still need one more guest scooper for the 5 pm to 6 pm slot and two more for the 8 pm to 9 pm slot. Everyone please come out and get ice cream. A percentage of the proceeds will go to offset our Disney expenses.

If you don’t yet have your money into Tara for DCI, the last day to pay for tickets if Friday, July 18th. $25 per person and $30 if you would like to ride the bus. Parents are welcome.

Thanks, and have a great rest of the week!

Important Notes as Band Camp Begins Monday and Ways You Can Help

Several things to note as band camp kicks off on Monday:

• Beverly Richardson, our uniform coordinator, will be at the school today from 9:15 am to 3 pm to measure students for their uniforms. If you have not been measured yet, check Facebook for possibly available times.

• Rick Yamin has passed out gray/silver bracelets to all those students who have all of their paperwork turned in to begin band camp. Please be sure to wear that bracelet every day at band camp. This will speed up the check in process in the mornings. If you do not have a bracelet, there will be a table set up for you to visit to finish any necessary paperwork. Please be sure to come with your child to camp that first morning if you don’t have a bracelet as they may not be able to participate without the proper paperwork and signatures, etc.

• Tara Fisher is coordinating lunches each day during band camp for our 10 band camp staff members as a show of appreciation for their efforts. If you would like to provide something for this please respond to this e-mail or reply to Tara’s message on our Facebook Page. The lunches can be as simple as sandwiches and chips or salads or pastas, etc.

• Cookie Dough order forms have now gone out. We have two weeks to take as many cookie dough orders as we can. These sales go directly into your Fair Share Account so it’s a great way to earn money to pay fees and for Disney. Friends and family from out of town can order online at www.littlelambsfundraising.com and enter the code EBXVW. Shipping will be charged as it will ship directly to them. Please keep track of friends and family who order online to make sure you get the credit in your account.

• We have two Spirit Nights this week. Proceeds from these go to offset Disney expenses.

Tuesday, July 14 — Chili’s in Hendersonville from 5 pm to 9 pm. Be sure to show the attached flyer, and we’ll get 10% of your order.

Thursday, July 17 – Maggie Moo’s in Hendersonville from 5 pm to 9 pm. We need to provide guest scoopers during this time in order for the band to get the proceeds from the evening. Please sign up for an hour-long shift (both adults and students) by responding to this e-mail or signing up using this Google Doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/15YmUg3anbBo1BPL3QCeQ-EyAw_AfHZ2RekjCG56nSO4/edit?usp=sharing

• The band will be going to DCI on Friday, July 25th at Vanderbilt. Tickets will be $25 per person and $30 if you would like to ride the bus. The last day to pay for tickets will be Friday, July 18th. SCHS is proud to have 2 current band members, Austin Barry and Erick Pacheco, marching with Music City and one of last years graduates and field commander, Kyle Biggs will be marching for Carolina Crown. These shows are extremely entertaining and a great inspiration for all our band members. Not required, but encouraged. See Tara Fisher to reserve and pay for your ticket.

• Mr. Scott has circulated a couple of Band Camp informational pages. They are attached — what to bring, when to be there, what to expect, etc. Please review prior to Monday morning.

• If you would like to donate water bottles to the band, please bring them to the band room anytime during band camp. It takes a lot of water to get through a Marching Season.

We’re looking forward to a great Band Camp and a great kick off to our season!
