We know that all of the fundraising, uniform purchasing, spirit wear and show shirt buying has been a bit overwhelming (it always is at the beginning of each year!) – so we are extending the Friends and Family Campaignone more week with form turn ins on Monday, 9/26. All the students have to do is complete the pre-formatted form with addresses. The section with the most participation will each win a Dutch Bros. gift card!

If you missed last night’s parent meeting, please take a moment to read the attached Spring 2017 Tour Commitment Form. We are excited to put together an amazing tour to celebrate the year with your students and show off their amazing talent in a magical way – at Disneyland! To complete the planning for this event, we need an honest commitment for your student. Please complete the attached Commitment Form and return it to Mr. Hodge or ABBA no later than Saturday, 8/27.
Your students should have brought home a packet for the Tritan Tumblers. These are the same cups that sell at Bed Bath & Beyond – for the same price – and can help fund-raise money for your student’s program (and tour!) The students are in their own competition within their sections, but they can also earn a personalized Titan Band & Guard Sweatshirt by selling at least 20 tumblers. Fundraiser needs to be turned in to ABBA on Friday, 9/2 at the football game.
It is time to order your 2016-17 Show Shirt and Spirit Wear! The attached Order Form will be collected on 8/20 and 8/27 during Super Saturday.
