Happy New Year Skyhawk Family and Friends!
Our January Band Booster Meeting will be next Tuesday, January 13th at 7:15pm. Our big event coming up is the CBA (Concert Band Assessment) or aka “Festival” in March. The start date is still to be determined. It will either be Thursday, March 12th or Friday, March 13th and run through Saturday, March 14th. Please mark your calendar now with these dates.
Approximately 40 or more bands with easily 3,000 kids will come to Bird to perform for judges for their State Concert Band Assessment. The magnitude of this event can be mind boggling when you sit down and view it as a whole. However, we successfully pull it off every year because of the volunteer help from our parents and kids.
The Concessions and Shake Shack portion of this event are perhaps our biggest fund raiser of the year. In past meetings, we have received some great ideas for improving our efficiency and our profit margin. In our meeting Tuesday, we start putting tasks into motion to make sure we have another successful Festival. We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday.
From Mrs. Oyan:
Yes, we are still on for today. Students please wear an older change of clothes to practice in, and bring a change of clothes for the competition. After practice, everyone will change into those clothes to wear under the uniform for the competition.
“Keep calm and play strong”.
