News – November 11, 2018

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

Whether they were eaten or taken home, it looks like there are no leftover desserts from the Parent Night and we’ll have to do without at the Band Parent Meeting. It was a most enjoyable way to wrap up the season, with all the kids and their families having such a good time and the variety of sweets was fantastic (although I am kind of curious as to who eats broccoli for dessert – no doubt someone who has better abs than me).

New Posts
Be sure to head over to the Mac Band (Members Only) Facebook Page and check out what’s new. Jamie posted photos and videos of the band at the Linfield game on Saturday and Jes shared the University of Oregon video from the Festival of Bands.


Band Picture
If you missed getting a copy of the picture of the Marching Band at Autzen Stadium, you can drop by Staples and they will be happy to print one for you (for a fee of course). You can even choose whatever size you like. Just let them know you want the Mac Band picture.

Band Buttons
Here again is the information for how to get a pin-on button with a photo of your favorite marching band member:

This first link is where you can view the photos. Some of the group photos that take up most of the frame will be more of a challenge to create a button from, but our button maker is willing to give it a try!

This next link is for the order form.

There will also be hard copies of the photos for viewing and order forms to fill out at the Parent Night tomorrow for those who prefer the paper version.

Orders will accepted until December 1st and buttons will be delivered at the Band Parent meeting on December 11th.

Buttons are $4 for the first button and $3 for each button after that (does not have to be the same photo). Payment is due at the time of delivery and all proceeds go to the Class of 2019 Grad Night.

This Week’s Schedule

Band Parent Meeting – Tuesday, November 13th @ 7:00 p.m. in the Freshman Den at the High School. We’ll be recapping the Marching season from the Parent’s perspective, going over fundraising challenges, and looking ahead to upcoming band events (including percussion, guard, jazz, and concert bands.)

League Jazz Festival – Wednesday, November 14th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. @ Newberg High School. Since McMinnville is in the Pacific Conference League this year, there are new events for the bands and choirs to take part in. Unfortunately, I don’t have much information about this other than the Jazz Band will be participating. Check with your student for any updates from Mr. Barton.

Music Boosters / Jazz Night Meeting – Wednesday, November 14th @ 5:30 p.m. in the Freshman Den. If you’re interested in helping with this year’s Jazz Night, please join us.

Next Week’s Schedule

Fall Jazz Band Concert – Monday, November 19th @ 7:00 p.m. in the MHS Auditorium

See you at the meeting,
Brian Bailey
McMinnville Band Parent Organization
