Good Afternoon all!

 
I have a lot of information and a lot of links for you.
 
The first and most pressing need is for a trailer hauler for Jazz Night at Vincenzos this Wednesday, March 29th.  We will start loading about 3:00 p.m. so would need you here at SHS about 2:45 p.m. to hook up trailer.    Here is the link to sign up http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080d49afaa23a2fc1-trailer or feel free to let me know.
 
And, that being said, please join us for our next Jazz Night at Vincenzo's on Wednesday, March 29th at 6:30 p.m.
 
Senior parents, you have until Friday, March 31 to get your student's baby pictures approved by me. Then you can email those baby pictures to James DeRuvo at Saugusband@gmail.com  
 
Also, any pictures you have that we might be able to use in the End of Year slide show at the Banquet, please email to James DeRuvo at the above address or drop them on a flashdrive if its easier.  He needs those by Friday, March 31.
 
Banquet Sign up forms are due with checks by Friday, April 14th.  There are sign up forms in the band room your student can pick up.  Banquet is Friday, May 5th at Grace Baptist Church beginning at 6:30 p.m.

TRUMPET PLAYERS:  (a special notice from Nick Rail)

"We have partnered with Conn-Selmer for what I have dubbed the “Bach-Stravaganza”.  Originally only three days, the trumpet tour has been extended through March 31.  A representative from Bach will be in the Valencia location on March 31 from 1:00-7:00pm with a huge selection of pro trumpets and mouthpieces.  This is a great opportunity for everyone, especially students, interested in trying out different horns and mouthpieces.  It is a rare event to have all of these horns in one place and you’ll be able to compare them back to back.    

 

Better yet, as part of our partnership we are able to offer a MINIMUM of $500 off on all of the pro trumpets until the end of the day on 3/31. 

 

There will also be discounts on trumpet mouthpieces and FREE RAFFLE PRIZEZ! I love a good raffle. The prizes range from gift cards to gig bags and we will have several drawings throughout the day. "

 
I also wanted to give you an update on our big Classic Car Fundraiser that our amazing Vice President, Mike Mildon, is organizing.  This event will actually take place in the fall as it was determined there was not enough time to adequately prepare for the June date.  The plans are still quite tentative at this point, but we will need some of our awesome parents to help coordinate different parts of the Car Show.  Please contact me or Mike Mildon if you would like to be part of putting on this event.  Some of our needs will be a BBQ Lunch coordinator, a Bake Sale coordinator, and a Raffle coordinator.  
 
We are busy preparing for our POPS concert so make sure Thursday, May 4th is on your calendars.  Concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
 
 
Thank you,
-JJ
