Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

There was a bit of a hiccup on the Band Sign-up Page last week and I know that some students had trouble getting themselves registered. The problem has been fixed and the sign-up form is once again ready to use. If you know of a student that had trouble with the site, please let them know to try it again. Thanks.
We’ve Got Bottle Bags
Jesse has dropped off a bunch of the official blue Bottle Drop bags at Incahoots. There are still labels to be printed and attached to the bags before they are turned in, but we can now get started gathering up all those bottles and cans to make some money for the band. Feel free to stop by Incahoots (905 N Baker, 9:30 – 5:30 Mon-Sat) and pick up how many you need.


Band Camp is Quickly Approaching
Be sure to click over to the Band Camp Volunteer Sign-up Sheet to select what you would like to help with and when you would like to do it. In addition to helping feed the band, we are also in need of parents who can stay overnight as chaperones and some folks to help out with evening activities. Please take a look and add your name to the list – it should be a lot of fun.

Also, if you will be helping out with the band, you will need to have an MSD Criminal History Verification Form on file with the district. It only takes a couple of minutes to fill out and my recollection is that it is valid for three years, so be sure you get this taken care of soon. Cathy at the district office has been quickly processing the background checks but will be on a break this week. However, you can send in the form or drop it off and she will still be able to get it verified before Band Camp. See the Band Camp Web Page for more info about where to send it.
64 and Counting
For your convenience, here again is the link to the Mac Band website to sign up for Marching Band.

Fair Share
Here also is the link to make a payment for the Fair Share band fee.

And just added to the Mac Band website is a Student Log In where students (or their parents/guardians) can update or add to the student’s information and check on their Fair Share balance. If you need help getting logged in, send a message to

See you soon,
