Band Updates & Information

Coupon books have been given to the students.  It is in everyone’s best interest to SELL, SELL, SELL.
Ten dollars from each sale goes into your band account and can be applied to many of the fees associated with participating in marching band.
Forms (notarized if necessary) and money need to be turned in ASAP.  They are past due and need to be completed.
Football Ads need to be collected and turned in this week.  Again, this is a great way to earn money for your account to help with those band fees. 50 percent of the ad cost goes into your account.
FSU trip information will follow as the details are worked out.  As of now, kickoff time that Saturday morning will determine the number of nights needed in a hotel.  An early kickoff time will require a 2 night stay because of the length of the travel time.  An afternoon kickoff will involve overnight travel and a single night in the hotel lowering the cost of the trip. Space is limited, your $50 deposit is needed to hold your reservation.
The first parent band meeting will be next Thursday 8/24/17 at 6:00 PM.  We will have a lot of information to cover.  Please mark your calendar and do your best to attend!  We will be sharing information about volunteer opportunities, upcoming competition dates and fundraising etc.
Also remember to place your orders for parent t shirts and hoodies.
Financials have been updated in Charms.  Log in to check your account.

Chipotle Fundraiser

Chipotle is hosting a Fundraiser for Dwyer Band. They will donate 50% of sales to Dwyer Band for anyone who presents the attached flyer or tell them at the counter they are with Dwyer Band. This was a very successful fundraiser the last time we did it. So please tell as many people as possible: friends, family, coworkers, and strangers on the street, etc.  Chipotle Address: 4655 PGA Blvd, Bldg F, Palm Beach Gardens.

Our Annual Italian Dinner and Silent Auction will be held on Friday, April 7th in the school’s cafeteria from 6pm – 8pm.

This event is a fundraiser for both the band and your child’s Fair Share Account.  All dinner ticket sales go to the Band’s General Fund.  Silent Auction item sales go to each student’s fair share.

What can you do for this fundraising event?  Start now getting items for the Silent Auction. Before you know it, the event will be here so it is important to start now especially since other schools in the area host events like this. We want to be first out the door securing items for the silent auction. Great ideas are gift certificates and cards from local restaurants, movie theaters, golf foursomes, spas, nail and hair salons, etc.  We will also take gift baskets or other items you may get. A donation form will need to be completed by the donors.  Please be sure to take this form with you when soliciting businesses.

Spagetti Dinner-Auction-Paperwork-2017

Dinner tickets will go on sale soon – sell tickets to friends and family members, have your student(s) sell them to their friends, club members, neighbors. The more tickets we sell the more money we will raise for our band programs.  In addition, a large audience listening to the students play is great and a bigger opportunity for the auction items to sell!

For this event to be successful, we need everyone to get at least one auction item.  Items can be brought in during band periods and left with Mr. Lamp or in the parent office.
