There are many things going on in the SPHS Band Boosters even though marching season is over.
For those of you who have attended the past few meetings, you are aware of the dire financial situation we are in. That being said, we will be starting a new fundraiser with Cookie Dough sales to help members meet their financial obligation. It will run for 1 week only - Thurs. Feb 10 to to Wed. Feb. 16th. Students can earn approximately 40% towards their band fees. Forms will be available in the band room. Please do your part to pay off outstanding 2010 Marching Band Fees. The Band's future depends on it. As always "Make Me a Whole Person" forms are available on the website if you have friends or family that would like to donate in your name but not purchase a product.
Butts for Band - We have sold 116 smoked boston butts. Thank you to all who participated. They will be cooked this Friday night and available for pick-up on Sat. at the High School from 10 am to 2 pm. ***** Lee Smith is still in need of seasoned hickory wood. If anyone has any to donate please contact Becky Smith at 770-595-4073
There is a $5.00 participation fee for GMEA (Georgia Music Educators Association) for all students attending District Honor Band in Ringold on Feb. 17th. This is in addition to the audition fee which was collected last fall. Please make checks out to SPHS Band Boosters and put in the red box.
Once again we will be hosting a Battle of the Bands. This is a competition of smaller rock-type bands made up of students from Paulding County High Schools. The date is Friday April 1st at 7:00 pm. We need volunteers to help coordinate this event, set up, sell tickets,solicit donations for a raffle, etc. Please help if you are able! Contact a Booster Member, Mr. Carr, or Mr. Roberts if you are able to help.
