News – March 10, 2019

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

Coming up on Saturday, the Winter Guard and Winter Percussion will be at Sherwood High School for the Sherwood Winter Showcase. The Winter Guard is on at 12:13 p.m. and the Winter Percussion takes the floor at 6:00 p.m. This a great opportunity for you to cheer on both groups before the season comes to a close. It’s not too far away and I bet we can find you a seat on the bus!

Marching Band Student Accounts
Jamie has been doing a fantastic job of keeping track of student accounts. She sent along the following message to let you know the current status.

Updated invoices will be coming out later in the week with the Pie order contributions and any other payments that have been made.

I am parent volunteer and appreciate parents contacting me in regards to their students accounts. I receive reports from Mr. Barton for payments made to the school and I receive reports from Brian Bailey for payments made to the Music Boosters. This data is entered into your student’s invoice and then emailed out to you. If you are not receiving an invoice by email please email to have your email added to your students account.

If your records do not match those on the invoice, please request a print out from the school of payments made to your student’s band account.

These invoices are specifically just for the Marching Band Fair Share of $250. Other amounts such as Winter Guard, Winter Percussion, Band Shirts etc are not included in these invoices.

Band Parents Unite! 
Our next Band Parent Meeting is this Tuesday. Once again we’ll be gathering in the Freshman Den at 7:00 p.m. Items up for discussion include the Sponsorship Drive Matching Challenge, Saturday’s Competition, and much more!


WGI Regional Results

The Winter Guard’s first appearance at a WGI event earned them high marks from the judges. In the preliminary round, they finished in 3rd place with a new personal high score of 70.83. And in the finals, they again place 3rd but posted another new high score of 72.53. Great job guard!

Mike got both of their shows on video and you can watch them here on the Mac Band (Members Only) Facebook page.
