Band Trip 2014

Attached is a letter about the Band Trip to Florida in the Fall of 2014 (PDF).

This letter was sent home in hard copy before break, but on the off chance that you did not receive it, you can download it from here. The deposit form is included at the bottom of the letter.

We will have an optional trip meeting on February 3 at 6:30 in the HS Auditorium for anyone who has questions about the trip. A representative from Noteworthy Tours will also give a presentation about the trip at that meeting.

BIG TRIP 2014 Volunteers

Parents of band students going on BIG TRIP 2014:

The AW Marching band students will have their next Big Trip (once every 4 years) in most likely late Fall of 2014 (about 18 months from now).

Because of this expensive event, the Band Boosters are looking at having a large fundraising event to help fund a portion of the students’ trip cost. But we cannot do this alone and are looking for some volunteers to help with this fundraising event.

Again, this is to help reduce YOUR cost for the trip in 2014.

If you would like to help out your child’s booster and band organization by assisting with this event or for more information, please contact me.

Scott Donnelly, AWBB VP

High School Newsletter

Here is this week’s newsletter (PDF).  Sorry it is late.  It was a late night/early morning 🙂

Thanks to everyone who went on or helped with the Chicago Trip.

  • I would appreciate any pictures from the Chicago Trip to put on the bulletin board. Please bring them to school on a flash drive to transfer if you are willing to share.
  • Here is a link to some video from the Chicago Parade. We appear starting at the 5:20 mark.
  • Due to the upcoming break, medicines that have not been picked up by a parent will be sent home with the students this afternoon or tomorrow. Please make sure that all medicine has been returned. If you have any questions, please call the main office.

Other reminders:

  • We will be participating in the Orion Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 1. The report time will be noon and the return time will be around 9:30pm.
  • The time for the Holiday Concert will be changed to 7:30pm to help with a few athletic conflicts.
  • Pep Band schedules are available in the band room.

Have a great Thanksgiving Break.

Chicago Trip – Medicine

Attached please find a form (PDF) to use for students who will need to take prescription medicines while on the Chicago Trip.  It can be filled out and faxed to the school office (419-877-5028) or brought to school on Friday morning.

Students who need to take prescription medicine should turn in their meds to Mrs. Hoellrich with the form (unless it was faxed earlier) on Friday morning.  The medicine will be given to the students at the proper time based on the medicine forms.

Students who already have an over the counter medicine form on file in the office will be able to get OTC medicine based on that form.  If you have not turned in an OTC form to the office at the beginning of the school year and wish for your child to have access to those medicines, you may fill out an OTC Med form (PDF): available on-line under notes from the nurse.

We will also have hard copies of these forms available to your child at school this week.

Chicago Bus Trip (another option for fans)

Note: This is NOT an official Band Booster activity. But we are providing information here because it may be of interest to marching band families.
