Help us Fill Goody Bags for our ISSMA competition - Donations due FRIDAY
The Spirit Committee is collecting donations to fill Goody Bags for our students! The Goody Bags will be passed out to students for the ISSMA Regional on Saturday, October 19. There is a bin marked "Goody Bags" outside of the prop room door. Please no chocolate or peanuts. The Spirit Committee will be putting the goody bags together on Saturday morning, Oct. 19, so please turn in donations by Friday so we can include them. Thank you in advance for your donations!
Trailer Donations Update
The trailer donation drive continues to accept your donations. If the band has your email address, we have sent a donation email to you at least twice; the email includes your student's photo. Please forward this email to your friends and family who may be interested in helping the band. If you would like for us to contact your friends and family, please print this form - fill out the form and have your child place it in the white box outside of the band room.
Contact Travis Sears with any questions.
Trash Bag Fundraiser - Ends Oct. 21
The Trash Bag Fundraiser is underway, and orders are due Monday, October 21. We expect delivery to be the week of October 28. Trash bags cost $10 per roll and the student will receive a deposit into their band account for each roll of trash bags sold. The amount students earn will be based on the total number of trash bags sold - the more we sell, the bigger the profit. Visit the Trash Bag Fundraiser Page for all the information. Contact Becky with questions.

Pep Band is coming in November!
The FC Pep Band starts in November and is a great opportunity to play fun music with friends and be part of the action at boy's and girl's basketball games. This activity is open to all band students and is quite inexpensive. You'll be given a jersey with your graduation year on the back. There were 8 games last year that began after Thanksgiving and continued into February. That's only about 2 games per month, a very low time commitment compared to other extracurricular band activities. One more thing, there is PIZZA at halftime. More information from Mr. Ellinger will be coming soon.
