Our 5th annual Mattress Fundraiser is coming up on Saturday, February 26th, from 10am to 5pm! All mattresses are made new with full manufacturer’s warranties. Financing, layaway, and delivery are available! We need your help over the next few weeks to get the word out in the community. Here's how you can help our band and your child.
1. Help find at least 1 person who needs a mattress set and get them to commit to come by our sale on Saturday, February 26th. Most of our sales will come from the efforts of parents and band members who find people who need a mattress.
2. Go to our Facebook event page, click that you are "going" to the event, and "invite" all your friends. If we have 100 parents, with 100 friends each, we have just reached 10,000 people! Here is the link to our event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/980036969523375
3. Earn money! For every referral purchase of a mattress or adjustable base, you earn money toward your child’s account!
Thanks in advance for your help in getting the word out about this fundraiser!

For those students who are NOT going on the Florida trip, please get your uniforms cleaned this week and return to the band room Jan 24 thru 28. Include your dry cleaning receipt, Bibbers, jacket, shako, gloves, black plastic hanger, all in the red garment bag with your name tag on it. We need them to issue uniforms to all students going on the trip who were not in marching band last fall.
Seniors not going on the trip: if you are willing to donate your shoes, that would be a great help for outfitting non-marching students for the Disney parade.
Marching band students going on the Florida trip should keep their uniform and get it ready for the Disney parade.
Disney/Universal 2022 - April 20-24, 2022.
FAQ: Is it too late to sign up?
No. If you sign up late you will need to make sure and make all missed payments. Keep in mind we are now making decisions based on the current number of people going like rooming, music, and other things that are number dependent. If we reach bus capacity or run into a situation that would significantly impact the price or quality of the trip, we may have to close registration. If you sign up after we do rooming lists, we will do our best to accomodate however your options may be limited as to who you stay with. All trips must be paid for in full by February 21st (firm deadline for any adds!)
To register or to acces your account:
Band trips are open to ALL students in the band program, which includes anyone in a band class including Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Color Guard, or Percussion.

Anyone going is VERY strongly encouraged to purchase "Cancel for any reason" trip insurance. You will find an option to purchase "Cancel for any reason" trip insurance on the website or you can use your own insurance to do so. Anyone without "Cancel for any reason" trip insurance is risking not receiving a refund if the trip were to be cancelled or you were not allowed to go due to quarantine/Covid. A form will be out soon to indicate your choice with this. In the case of the trip insurance offered by our travel company, you can purchase it anytime up to the last payment. Once you have paid your trip in full, you are not eligible to receive trip insurance.
