From Mr DeJoy:
Hello Music Families,
I hope you are all recovering well after an extremely busy week of band! I can not believe we only have a week left in our competitive marching band season. The students have been working hard and I am excited to see what they do with our last run of the season this weekend. Below is the week at a glance and some important announcements.
Music Parent Meeting
There is a music parent meeting at the high school today at 6:00pm in room 135. I hope you can make it!
The metlife trip is this weekend. Final details will be sent out by tomorrow evening which will include a finalized itinerary, a packing list, an info packet on the show, and more.
Make sure you submit all payments by the end of this week. If you have any trouble with the financial side of things please let me know.
We have our set list of chaperones who will be helping us on the trip but we need a few additional hands to help us get on and off the field at metlife. If you are interested in doing this please email me. Helping move equipment on the field does NOT get you a free pass into the show.
Metlife Food Ordering
We are providing two meals while on the Metlife trip that we need student orders for. A bagged lunch on Saturday and a sit down lunch at Ellen’s Stardust Diner on Saturday. Students and chaperones must fill out a google form indicating what they want for BOTH meals. These forms are on the marching band google classroom. They must be filled out by Wednesday at 5:00pm As a reminder students must bring additional money for dinner on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
I have received tickets to the show at Metlife at a discounted price of $32 (Regularly $39). If you want to order any tickets at this price please send $32 CASH to school with your student and I will give them tickets to give back to you. You can also find me before or after rehearsal this week.
One of our band parents, Chris Jones, has taken pictures of the band at a few of our events in the last week and they came out AMAZING. The pictures are available at: https://christopherjones.smugmug.com/Marching-Band/2022-Fall-Mansfield-Marching-Band These photos are free to download, share, and print. There is a download button on the web page for each photo that will let them download a full resolution jpeg file.
We have another MBPA Gillette fundraiser this week! Support the music parents and our music students by attending this event and events after this one! More info here: https://mansfieldbandparents.org/gillette/
The music parents have launched a limited-time only store featuring Mansfield Band and Color Guard clothing and other items. The store closes on November 4th so put your order in quickly!
That’s all for now! There is a lot going on in the music department and a lot to keep track of! We couldn’t do what we do without your continued support.
