New Concession Dates!

Hello Fellow Ram Band Students and Parents!

We have some new concessions dates that we have been assigned and need help filling some spots. I understand that some dates and times are impossible for students to help out so we are reaching out to anybody that help us out. So far we have avoided being charged any fines and we would LOVE to keep it that way! All of the dates are loaded into Charms and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime. As always we appreciate any and all help we have received so far and hope that those of you have helped out already have had as good of a time working the concessions as we have! SENIORS…please help us out because there quite a few of you who have not worked a concessions yet and all band students are required to work at least two.

Thanks Again for everything that you do to help the Ram Band meet their goals!!!

Sincerely, Michelle Huerta VP of Concessions

Final Week of Band Camp!

Rams,

We have reached the final week of summer band camp. Yeah! Please read over the schedule carefully (click here: JMHS Weekly Schedule 8-13- 8-17) because it is going to be a busy week. Please make every effort to make our first band booster meeting this Tuesday, August 14th at 7:00 pm in the band hall. As part of our upcoming mattress fundraiser, the company we are working with is donating $5 to the Marshall band boosters for every parent in attendance. This is an easy opportunity to support our program by sharing a few minutes of your time. I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday and Go Rams!

Trailer Work Day at the bandhall

Rams,
This Monday, July 30th we are going to have a workday on the band trailer starting at 8 am. David Helterbrand has made plans for the inside of the trailer and we are looking to get bodies in to help build. Also, if you have a 6-foot ladder and/ or a screw gun please bring it so the work will go faster. This is very exciting to get started transforming the shell of the trailer into something we can use.

Secondly, I have linked a Mattress Fundraiser Parent Letter about our upcoming mattress fundraiser. A representative will be there on Saturday at band registration to answer any questions you might have. It is a great way to get money into your students account to start the school year. See you tomorrow and Go Rams!

Mattress Fundraiser for 2018

Rams,
I have Mattress Fundraiser Brochure for our second annual mattress fundraiser which will take place on August, 25 from 10 am- 5 pm in the girl’s gym. It is a great way to raise money to pay down your band assessment fees. Please share the attached information on your social media networks. The more people we get in the door, the more money we can raise for our students. There will be a representative from the company on band registration day that will be able to talk with you in detail on how the fundraiser works and what percentage goes back to your student based on mattress’s sold.
