Good gracious is there a lot to keep up with! Here we go!
Unfortunately, we still do not have a delivery date for the Garbage bags. Getting the materials needed to make them has been difficult, but they are working hard to get them to us as quickly as they the can. We apologize for the delay.
The Winter Guard has one more regular season competition at Chattahoochee High on March 26 and then Championships at the UTC McKenzie Arena on April 2. They have worked really hard and have a beautiful show for everyone to see. They would love to have you come support them!
The Dollywood letter and first payment are due by March 22. We have received several questions about the trip and hope we have answered quickly. This is the first large trip for all of them since 2019 and we know there are a lot of questions. Please feel free to ask away! A few commonly asked questions answered: Can we use band account money from fundraisers to help pay for the trip? Yes! Every case sold earns the student $1 in their account to be used for band fees or trips. You sold 10? You have $10 you can put on the trip! You can always log into charmsoffice.com to view your account. We will also send home statements on Wednesday(tomorrow). Students may bring electronics, but are responsible for them. School dress code must be followed for school trips. Students may ride with their families to and from Dollywood, but we need a note letting us know. In fact, we encourage this to help on spacing on the buses. Students are required to stay with an adult chaperone the entire time in the park. Siblings are not excused from school unless they are also in band. The Dollywood letter is attached to the previous blog post.
The Fruit and Garbage Bag Sale Party is on March 25 at DCHS until 7p.m. Any students that sold 10+ items in either sale are invited to come and have a big time! Pizza, hide and go seek, nerf war(we will have a limited supply and students may bring their own), and many more games. We cannot wait!
The Mattress Sale is March 26 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in the DCHS Commons area. Students are not required to show up, but for anyone that comes to purchase a mattress and tells the sales rep the students name, the student will receive a free band hoodie. Please help share the word of the sale and come try out some great mattresses.
Spring Concerts are quickly approaching. The DMS Concert is on April 5th, the DCHS Concert is on April 28. Details can be found in a previous blog post. PLEASE have students try on their concert clothes to make sure they still fit before the concert. Students are to wear all black for concerts. Skirts/dresses MUST lay below the knee when seated.
Whew! That's a lot! Please remember you can view the calendar on dcband.org and next years dates are already on the calendar through December 2022. The rest will be uploaded soon. See you soon!
