This week in band

Our next home game is this Friday, October 14 against Royal Palm Beach. It is also Senior Night and Middle School night. We will be hosting both Independence and Duncan Middle School band students and will be serving them pizza and dessert. I ask that everyone donate dessert for this event. The pizza will be covered by the band. I will need at least 8 parents to come at 5pm to help set up. We plan on serving the students around 5:30. Also needed are stand volunteers. Please sign up in Charms for these positions. It is important that you input your information into the volunteer section in Charms so that we can plan the help accordingly. This is a very important event for us as this is how we grow our band for next year and we want to honor our Seniors!

Since it is Senior Night, we will perform after the game. We would like to have all props on the field for this performance. So we would like all the parents that will be helping on Saturday be available to bring the props on the field Friday night.

Dwyer Band Events

This Thursday, September 15 is our Band booster Meeting at 6:30 in the Band Room. We have some important information to distribute regarding Band Competitions, Fundraiser’s etc. This meeting is the only meeting that we will have prior to our Band Completions in October. So it will be very important to have parents at this meeting so we can go over the details of the Competitions.

Also on Thursday, we will be starting our Cheesecake Fundraiser. The Cheesecake Man will be at school to discuss with the kids this fundraiser and to hand out the brochures to collect orders. 40% of sales of this fundraiser will go towards the band students fair share. This is a great money maker. The product is anticipated for delivery the 1st or 2nd week of November which is great for the Holidays.

Friday, we have a home game against Palm Beach Lakes. For those chaperones who will be helping in the stands, you can arrive around 6 pm. For the chaperones who will be helping to set up the stadium, we require you to be here between 5pm – 5:30pm.

Thank you to  all the parents that came out to support the band and to help out in the stands. We had had a great turnout Friday night. The kids love it that they have parents that come to their functions.
