All marching band students should have picked up coin collection containers outside of Mr. McGuire’s office. We are asking students and families to simply put the containers on their counters and fill with spare change as able. Students will then return the containers to school throughout the marching band season and fill a five gallon water jug. If the kids as a group are able to fill the jug then they are going to earn a student vs staff/alumni touch football game!


We have had a busy year so far at Gillette! The Patriots are looking strong and we still have a lot of football season in front of us. Please volunteer to help us fill those empty slots! We need your continued help to make it successful. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE VOLUNTEERED! If you have never done Gillette before, have no fear, we will walk you through it step by step and you won’t have to deal with any traffic!!! Please sign up for a couple of events to help keep this program funded for the kids! If you have any questions about Gillette, please contact our Gillette Coordinator, Aaron Nicodemus. Late arrivals are always welcome.
