James River Band

Hello Regiment!

Take a look at this weeks information.  There have been some changes for this week so PLEEEEAAAASE Read on!!!!!  Thank you to everyone who came out Friday night to the raceway.  I know it was not ideal to all drive there and then get sent home, but I really appreciate it.  The owners of the raceway and I thought we could get it in before the storm came by, but it just didnt happen.  The owners of the raceway and I have been planning and scheduling that for at least 6 months and they do have a daughter at James River so I wanted to try to get it in.  I hope everyone made it home safely in the storm!  It was fierce!

Tag Day Envelopes:

-Every student received a large envelope on Friday with 10 smaller envelopes in it.  This is part of our most important Tag Day!!  We ask that all students address at least 5 of the 10 envelopes inside the envelope.  This are called our 'Friends and Family' Letters.  We send them out to as many family members as we can get and ask if they will support our band.  If you can return 5, GREAT....if you can return more than 5...even BETTER.  We also ask that you put a stamp on the envelopes that you do return.  Later this week, the students will stuff the envelopes with letter from them!  Whatever you can do as a family will benefit the group.  Please return those envelopes on Monday!!

Anyone who can Sew or Paint out there?

-We are in need of a few painters and sewers to help with this years props.  If you can help out, Im asking you to come to the booster meeting on Monday night at 7pm in the band room so we can start the process and schedule some times that we can get a group of parents together to make this happen!
