Chaperones/Truck Driver Needed for Oct 5 Competition Trip

Good morning,

Please sign up in Charms to Chaperone/drive truck for our Oct. 5th Trip to the Falcon Sound Competition. This will be an up and back trip leaving Saturday morning returning late Saturday night, exact itinerary will be released soon when the performance schedule comes out. Please only sign up if you can commit, we cannot afford to have chaperones drop before the trip since Level II background check is required. Once you sign up, I will check your volunteer status and let you know what to do for Fingerprints, do not attempt to do this before I contact you. Everyone must start with a Level 1 check (links to the background check program on the page linked below).

Band This Week: Open House/Bonfire+Game

Hello,

Thank you all for a great first game, all aspects went very well! Unfortunately, with school being canceled we are also canceling marching rehearsal this afternoon (Tuesday). We will work to put more of the show on the field for this Friday this Thursday, however, we are now a week and a half behind schedule due to lost outdoor time which jeopardizes having the show finished in time for our first competition. Hope to see everyone at Open House & the Bonfire Thursday and Game Friday! *Monday’s tag day is only for the Italy trip, there will be other full band tag day fundraisers later this year.*

Thursday, September 5th

*Regular Thursday 3:00-4:45pm Marching Band rehearsals through the end of October. Please avoid scheduling any appointments during these times/days, full year’s calendar at this link: Band Calendar

*Open House/Bonfire ***Times updated***: 5:30pm Open House Start (a great time to turn in any forms) followed by the Bonfire pep rally at 7:15pm (on the softball field behind the band field). The band performs at this event; please wear your red band shirt and grey shorts. The band students will need to be lined up to march to the field no later than 7:00pm.

Friday, September 6th

*Home Football game: Report to the Poinciana elementary cafeteria by 5:45pm, attendance (inspection) taken at 6:00pm in full uniform.

Please bring your band bag and your red water bottle which you will use in the stands. Have all of your music and your functioning instrument. Parents, please be aware that there is no set time for football games to end and transportation should be coordinated through cell/text messaging upon the conclusion of the game-this gives you about 30min lead time on pick up after students change cloths and pack up. The start time for this game returns to 7:00pm and the band performs the National Anthem/Pregame at around 6:45pm. Parents, we need many volunteers for each game.

Official: KWHS Band Italy 2020 Trip Signup/Commitment

Good evening,

Please use this link from the tour company to officially signup for the trip and to review the details of the trip:
There is a flyer linked on this page that has info about the payment schedule and other trip info.
Parents will pay the travel company directly for any portion that they are paying outright themselves.  If you plan on using money fund-raised through the KWHS Band program, sponsorships and donations that you collect and deposit with the school, you will let Mr. Hernandez know to take this from the positive balance on your Charms fundraising ledger.  The school will then cut a check to the company for this amount etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  We can discuss anything in person at the football game this Friday as well.  For those attending, there will be additional meetings to cover other trip logistics.  If you plan on chaperoning, you will need to be able to pass a Level II background check, I will get you setup to have fingerprints done if you plan to go.
Excited for what will be a monumental trip!
Gary Hernandez
