Hello Band Parents, Students, and Supporters! It’s fundraising season for the Montrose Band program, and I want to send out a quick update, as well as some information on the anticipated 2017 high school band trip.
First off, thanks so much to all who supported our FanCloth apparel sale! It was an incredibly beneficial fundraiser, and our students were able to get to the second-highest tier of profit earnings because of your support! We will continue this fundraiser next year, starting earlier (likely at the beginning of September).
Second, it is now time for our annual Fruit Fundraiser! We will be selling much of the same items we have in past years, but with one change. We no longer list Golden Delicious apples in our sale and have replaced these apples with Honeycrisp apples. Contact me or one of the band students in grades 6 through 12 for more information.
And finally, to our 2017 trip:
We are planning a high school band trip to Minneapolis/St. Paul in June of 2017 (students going on the trip will be the graduating classes of 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020). The trip will run much like past trips (4 days, 3 nights), and the hope is to be as all-inclusive as possible. Students have an estimated trip cost in mind, but we may be able to reduce that cost, depending on a few potential changes during the bidding window. We will be sending out further information, including individual earning totals and some basic trip information, via mail in the near future. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me through the school email address.
