Southeast Regional DCI Show

Hi Everyone,

This Saturday is the DCI Southeast Regional show, held this year at McEachern High School.  Mr. Morgan compiled a list of some of the top drum corps in the country and where they will be rehearsing before the show on Saturday for anyone who may be interested in viewing a rehearsal.  All of the rehearsals are open, and free to the public.  I would encourage all of you to double check this information with the websites of the individual drum corps for rehearsal times.  This is a phenomenal (and free) way to see some of the best performing ensembles in the country.

Hi Everyone!

We are beginning our fundraising efforts as of this week! These fundraisers are a great way to raise money to offset your student's band fees. 

First, we have car washes scheduled for Saturday, July 22 and August 19. Both will be held from 8:00am-12:00pm at the Waffle House at the corner of Hwy 61 and Ridge Rd. STUDENTS NEED TO SIGN IN WITH MRS. DEB IN ORDER TO BE CREDITED FOR THESE FUNDS.

Second, we have started our annual Coca-Cola sale. Order forms can be found in the band room or you can download a copy by clicking here.  All checks are to be made out to SPHS Band. Orders and money are due August 7. Delivery will be within 2 weeks of the order due date. We will notify you when you can come to pick up your orders.

Also, you and your student may now sign up to volunteer at Paulding Meadows Craft weekend. Profits from our Fried Oreo booth will be split between student workers. Please limit your student to one time slot sign up at this point to give everyone a chance to work this event. We will announce when there are more slots available., We will also need adults to work shifts at the booth and the gate. Those hours do not apply to individual accounts, but benefit the program as a whole.

Volunteer sign-ups are also available for serving concessions at home football games. This is a large fundraising program that benefits the whole band, not individual accounts. However, the monies raised at concessions goes toward the program and our efforts to keep individual fees as reasonable as possible.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email any of the board members listed on the website!
