Concert Blacks Order – Due January 22

It is time to pull out your student’s concert blacks and double-check your sizes!  If you are a Freshman Parent, your student will need to order Concert Blacks for the Spring Concert Season.  ABBA places a group order, which provides a price break and saves on shipping costs.  You will not be able to order direct, so late orders will be subject to a separate shipping cost, at your expense. Band Parents and Uniform Managers will be at the school during class on Friday, 1/15 to help with measurements.  To ensure that each student has either confirmed that their current uniform fits, or they need to order a new uniform, every student will be required to complete an Order Form to be turned in to their uniform manager or emailed to Kim by January 22nd.
Payment will be due and payable to ABBA upon delivery of the uniform.
Cost:
Shirt and Pant: $40
Shirt Only: $15
Pant Only: $25
ABBA does not fund the cost of concert blacks – this is simply facilitated through ABBA.  If you need financial assistance, please contact Mr. Hodge directly.
