In your folders you should have recieved a letter detailing the method to become a volunteer for the Raymond James Stadium concessions. ZHS still needs some workers for August 18th. If you are interested in working this event, please complete your online training, and email me the names of who will be working. Anyone who works must take the volunteer training. We have to submit the list of workers on Monday, August 15th, so please let us know as soon as possible. Remember, you will recieve $30.00 credited towards your band account, for every person who works on your behalf!
This Friday, May 20th, is our bands first Rock-a-thon. Due to some concerns from our school and district administration the Rock-a-thon times have been changed. The Rock-a-thon will now take place from 3:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. Other than the time change, nothing else has changed. Students are still allowed to bring some small snacks, games, books, etc…. to help stay occupied. We will be in need of approximately 5 rocking chairs, so please bring one in if possible. In addition, Mr. Medders will be staying after school with us to teach our students (and chaperones) some basic first-aid skills and will teach them how to properly administer CPR.
Again, I apologize for the time changes, and hope everyone is still capable of attending. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
Our recent fundraiser’s candles and chocolate has come in. We will begin distributing them to students tomorrow during class. It is their responsibility to deliver them to the appropriate people. There may also be extra chocolate bunnies and almonds, so please let us know if you may be interested in purchasing them.
Today, the Fivay High School Band Program began it’s K.I.S.S. (Keep it Simply Soy) Candle fundraiser. Every candle being sold costs $12.00 and comes in 18 different scents. Every candle is made from soy, burns for 65 hours or more, and the profit goes directly into your student band accounts. For every candle sold, $5.00 will be placed in your student account, that can be used to purchase supplies (reeds, oil, grease, etc…), band shoes, band shirt, your Lakeside Jazz trip, band banquet, etc… The money can even be applied towards your costs for next school year.
