Week of July 18th Events!

Hello Legend Band Families,

First and foremost, I would like to say Thank you! to Suzy Davidson, Board Members, all the Students and Parents who helped and attended yesterday’s Garage Sale and Car Wash Fundraiser at Legend’s which made it successful!  Looking forward to seeing you to upcoming fundraisers.

Coming up tomorrow Monday, July 18th, is the start of 2nd week of Full Band Camp.

Parents! as you all know Band camp in July is H-O-T!  So, we work hard to help keep the students hydrated by preparing water and Gatorade for two breaks called by Mr. Otis each day.  There are no specific set times within each shift for breaks, so water volunteers need to be flexible, patient and able to be stay for their full Shift.

We need more Gatorade and cups therefore donation will be greatly appreciated and, if you haven’t helped before, another experienced volunteer will be there to walk you through how it’s done.  Just let us know in the comments that you are a newbie :).
New feature, recently a cold water-steam station was nicely build by one of our Band dad (thank you Gerald Barton) which make the students’ water break more fun and refreshing in those hot summer days.  Water break volunteered parents will be asked to turn on/off the water-steam station during each break or as directed by Mr. Otis (water valve located on the patio is to be turned 1/4 of a turn).

This is an important, yet fun, way to support the kids as they work super hard.  We hope you can help! Please click here to register!

The Annual Band/Parent Demo Night and potluck dinner is coming up this Thursday, July 21st at 5:45 pm at Legend.

All Parents are welcome and encouraged to join us and break out those favorite recipes to share with the entire Legend Band family.  Families are asked to bring a side dish or desert based on last name.  Items should feed 8-12 people.  Food/dish’s tables will be set in the commons.  Please plan to arrive at the school at 5:30pm.

Last names beginning with:

A – M – Side Dish

N – Z – Desert

We are looking for one more Grill Master who isn’t shine to show us your prowess with grilling burgers and hot-dogs. please click here to sign up!

Coming up this Friday, July 22nd at 7:30pm is the “End of Band camp Pool Party” for all Band students.

On Monday, I will use Remind101, ’16 Marching Band Students** class to send out a message to all Band students containing a link to a signup sheet to register.

The Booster will be feeding pizza and water bottle to the Band students at the pool.

**If your child wasn’t able to do so, please have your child Enroll to Remind101 to receive important reminders and messages from Mr.Otis, Dan Fish (Band Booster Vice President) or myself (in this instance) by simply sending the text message @16mbstu to 81010 (’16 Marching Band Students).

Also, coming up this Friday, July 22nd is BINGO Night!
