Hello Everyone,

We had a great start to February with Jazz Band and Percussion receiving a Superior at MPA. For Solo and Ensemble we had 22 students earn superior medals. Also, one of our guard member, McKenna Stephens will be performing at State Solo/Ensemble during Spring Break in Jacksonville!!

Next week is another big week for the band. We have Concert MPA on Thursday. Also we will be collecting the second deposit for the Atlanta trip:

Concert MPA @ River Ridge High School – Thursday, March 2
This concert is open to the public and everyone is invited!! We’ll need 7 chaperones (use link to sign up). All symphonic band students will need to come to school with their black concert attire (black dress shoes, black dress pants and black dress button up long sleeve shirt) We’ll meet in the band room during 3rd period. We’ll take three busses to River Ridge High School and stop for lunch at McDonald’s (bring lunch money). Afterwards we will be listening other bands MPA performances. Our warm-up times is 5:00pm and our performance time is 5:30pm. We should be back at school around 6:30pm. If we receive a Superior at this event we will have a Grand Slam Superior Year!!!

Atlanta Trip – Second Deposit Due March 3rd
We raised $6968 dollars through our Snap Raise Fundraiser and we have one more night to go!! For the next deposit you may use your raised amount, minus the 20% the fundraising company will claim. Due to the great amount of money being collected our band boosters would like to collect all the deposits on the following days:

So much exciting events still to look forward to! If you have any questions please let me know: cadams@pasco.k12.fl.us
