Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

The Mac Band returned to Roby’s Furniture on Saturday to spread holiday cheer. A select group of students made themselves comfortable and performed a selection of traditional Christmas music. (Although it’s hard to tell from my photo, that’s Mr. Barton on Tuba.)

Fair Share Status
Jamie has been working hard to keep the band account in the black as we move into the Winter competition season. If your student still has a Fair Share balance owing, you should have received an email invoice for December. There are some parents for whom we don’t have an email address, and paper copies will be sent home with their students. If you have any questions about outstanding balances, please send an email to

One of our agenda items for Tuesday’s Band Parent Meeting is how to collect outstanding amounts. Bring your ideas and suggestions.
