Hansens Fall Fundraiser packets due this Saturday
Please remember that order forms and cash/checks need to be returned to FVL by Saturday, October 4. It is important that we receive the packets this weekend so that Hansen can deliver the product on Saturday, October 18. If your son or daughter will not be at rehearsal on October 4, please make other arrangements to get the packet to FVL on Friday or Saturday. Likewise, it is extremely important that the products are picked up on Saturday, October 18. If you can not be there that day, please make arrangements with somebody else to pick up the product, such as another family from your school or church.
Remember that 50% of the profit earned from this fund drive will be used to support the FVL Schools Band Program, and 50% of the profit will go directly into your account to offset your fees. The band students can also earn "Fabulous Prizes" for different levels of sales!
EVC Honors Band nomination forms due
This announcement is for those families who have received a nomination form for the Eastern Valley Conference Middle School Honors Band. Please return the nomination form this Saturday, October 4. The forms should be given to Mrs. Nogar either before or after rehearsal. The top portion should be filled out with the student information. If you are not sure how to answer some questions, just ask. You only need to fill out the top portion of the form. I will fill out the lower half of the sheet after they are returned.
If a student forgets to bring the form on Saturday, or remembers to bring the form but FORGETS to give it to Mrs. Nogar, the form can still be given to Mr. Neujahr or Mr. Kramer during lessons this next week.
The directors of the Eastern Valley Conference schools will be meeting in Ripon on Thursday, October 16 to make the selections for the Honors Band. I will announce which of our students are chosen for the band after those selections are made.
Mr. Neujahr will be gone this weekend
I will not be at rehearsal this coming weekend. My son Jonathan's wedding is this Saturday in Waukesha. Needless to say, I am looking forward to the weekend and the excitement that goes along with a wedding. It will be wonderful to have our families gathered together for this special occasion. Jonathan is our first child to be married, so my wife Julie and I are also excited for Jonathan and Brittany and the new life they will be starting together.
Thanks to Mr. Kramer for taking over the FVL Pep Band at the homecoming game on Friday, and to Mrs. Nogar for taking the Concert Winds rehearsal on Saturday.
