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. If you need new marching shoes and/or gloves, please complete the attached form and submit to Mr. Hodge by 8/19 or to an ABBA Board member on Saturday, 8/20.

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.
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.
Welcome back Titan Families! Please join us this Monday, 1/11/2016 at 7:00pm in the band room for the first Spring 2016 ABBA Meeting.

The calendar has been updated for Spring Semester so that you can plan ahead – note that dates and times may change, so check back and/or watch your email for Band Notes – starting back up on Monday!
