MBPA BOARD POSITIONS

If you are interested in serving on the MBPA board next year, please email Jenn Walsh @ president@mansfieldbandparents.org. Thank you to those that have already expressed an interest. Please formalize by emailing Jenn.

UNIFORM COLLECTION

We have collected most uniforms with just a small handful still outstanding. I would ask that anyone who still has a uniform to please hang onto it for now. As spring approaches we will have another collection date. Please do NOT just bring your uniform and leave it upstairs in the band uniform room unless you email secretary@mansfieldbandparents.org first. If you just leave it upstairs it will not get checked off that it was returned and I don’t want to bother you about returning if you already have.

MONTHLY BAND PARENTS MEETING CHANGED

THERE IS A CHANGE IN THE MEETING DATE. The next Band Parent meeting will be held on TUESDAY, APRIL 4th at 6PM in Room 135. PLEASE JOIN US!
