News – September 1, 2019

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

We are still patiently awaiting word on when the March-a-thon will happen. I’ll be sure to let you know if and when a date becomes official.

No need for students to stop collecting pledges though. Here’s the link to the March-a-thon Form.



Bottle Bags and Tags

We are hoping to have a bottles and cans collection event in the near future, but in the meantime there are blue Bottle Drop bags and labels available at Incahoots (905 NE Baker Street.) Feel free to drop by and grab what you need.

And you don’t have to wait for any specific event to take them to a Bottle Drop Redemption Center. They let us drop off up to ten bags a day without an appointment – just scan the label, the door opens up and you drop them inside. It’s quick, easy, and only smells a little like old beer.

Fair Share Payment Time

If you have been following the suggested payment schedule for paying the Fair Share amount for Marching Band, you have one more payment of $50 due this Friday, September 6th. As usual, you can check your balance by logging in to the Student section of the MacBand website with your Student’s ID.

This week’s schedule:

Marching Band Rehearsal – Tuesday, September 3rd, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. Meet at the band room.

Marching Band Rehearsal – Thursday, September 5th, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. Meet at the band room.

Marching Band Rehearsal – Saturday, September 7th, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Meet at the band room.

On the Horizon:

Band Parent Meeting – Tuesday, September 10th, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the High School Library. With any luck, the library will be our regular location for meetings this year, it’s light and airy and has comfy chairs. Please join us as we get ready for the competition season and plan a tailgate party to boot. Seating is limited to the first 100 parents, so be sure to be on time.

Happy Labor Day Weekend,
Brian Bailey
McMinnville Band Parent Organization
