News From Your Director

July 28, 2015

Dear Parents and Students,

First, if you are receiving emails from us in error, we are in the process of "shoring up" our list of active students and will be continuing that process through next week... thank you for your patience and this is likely the last communication you will receive from us.

Registration day is coming up this Saturday!  Please review the information sent out earlier this summer for information on what to bring and all of the required forms that should be filled out.  If you need another copy of any of that mailout, please visit  The times for the day are as follows:

SLT                                                    8:30 a.m.

Seniors                                             10:00 a.m.

Juniors                                              11:30 a.m.

Sophomores                                       1:00 p.m.

Freshmen (last name A - M)                2:30 p.m.

Freshmen (last name N - Z)                3:30 p.m.

In addition, we are in need of some parent volunteers to help at several stations, particularly uniforms and checkout.  If you would be willing to help for all or part of the day, please email Joanne Morales at  This would be a great opportunity to "get you foot in the door" as a volunteer and meet some other terrific band parents!

Also, we are still looking for someone who lives out at Vintage Oaks to "host" the band for our annual pool party out there.  The Booster Club takes care of the cost, but we have to have a resident book the facility.  Right now the party is scheduled for August 12 from 5-7:30, but we would need to book it from 4 to 8.  If any Vintage Oaks residents would be willing to help out in this capacity, please let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks, and can't wait to see you all on Saturday!

All the best,

Matt Boening
Band Director
