Booster Chaperone Shirts!

Greetings Ram Band Family,

Just a reminder that the last day to order the 2018-2019 Booster Shirt will be tomorrow, Aug. 14th.  I will be collecting order forms (click her for the order form: Band Booster Shirt Order Form 18-19) and money tomorrow evening at the Booster meeting.  I will also have hard copies of the order form on hand.

It is important to note that the new Booster shirt will be part of the required “uniform” to chaperone events.  Being in uniform helps our students to know who is chaperoning and who they can look to for assistance. Please understand we are not trying to make you buy one more shirt…. I definitely have my share of Band Gear, this is just so that we stand out to our students. If you are not planning on chaperoning this year then wearing your older booster shirts to support will be fine.

Also, as a reminder, all the events in which we will be needing parent chaperones are listed in Charms.  From the event calendar you can click on the “hand” or “turkey”, as Mr. Tabb calls it, and you can sign up for the event you are available to chaperone. If you need help logging in to Charms we will be set up with laptops tomorrow evening at the Booster Meeting to help with that.

I look forward to working with you this year!

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!

Chaperoning for 8/25/18

Greetings Ram Band Family,

I am excited to have the opportunity to serve as Vice President of Chaperones. If you are looking to get involved with the Ram Band, chaperoning is a great start!!! Our first event is coming up on Aug. 25th. This will be our Ram Band Debut. It is a great example of what to expect when traveling and performing on the football field.

If you would like to chaperone this event, please log on to Charms and click on the “hand” on the Calendar for Aug. 25th. If all the slots fill up, no worries, just contact me and I will add you.

While chaperoning we do wear a “uniform” of the booster shirt, black bottoms and tennis shoes. Many of you already ordered the shirt at registration. The deadline to order a shirt will be on Aug. 14 (our 1st Booster meeting of the year).  CLICK THIS LINK  for an order form for our Booster Shirt.

I’m looking forward to having a wonderful year and I’m excited to meet all those who have joined our Ram Band Family!

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.

Big News for 2018-2019

Rams,
I have two important announcements for you.

1)  I am happy to announce that Mr. Person has been hired to be the new head band director for Boerne High School. I am so pleased that he has this wonderful opportunity. We will obviously miss him here at Marshall. He has done incredible things with the jazz band, concert band, and entire program as a whole. I know that you will join me in wishing him the absolute best as he moves forward with this new challenge. He will always be a RAM and I hope he takes the love we have for him and imparts that in his students. Her is a link to Daniel Person Letter for you to view.

2) We have been interviewing candidates and I am pleased to announce Brianna Freitas will be joining our band staff. She is a flute player and a recent graduate from UTSA. I believe her energy, engaging personality, and a positive approach to teaching will serve our students well. I hope that everyone is enjoying their summer and Go most of all, Go Rams!
