Upcoming FVL Schools Band rehearsal schedule

We will rehearse this Saturday, September 22.  Please note that there will be NO rehearsal on Saturday, September 29!

This Saturday is also the FVL Schools Soccer Tournament.  Because of the damage to the FVL fields, the tournament will not be held at FVL.  The games are scheduled to begin at 10:00.  We thank the FVL Soccer Program for delaying the start of the tournament until AFTER our band rehearsals are over!  Since the games are off campus, some students may need to leave a bit early if they have a 10:00 game.  That is OK.  We are happy that they are able to do both activities.  It is also OK for students to wear their soccer uniforms to rehearsal.  It is fun to see so many of our band students dressed in uniform on tournament weekends!

Rehearsals leading up to our November concert will be on the following Saturdays:

September 22
October 6, 13, 20
November 3, 10, 17
November 18 - Fall Concert (2:00 PM)

FVL Schools Band Fundraiser Update

As of Friday, September 21, we have 10 band students registered for online sales!  More may be utilizing their paper forms.  We have $540 in total online sales so far.  That is almost $200 more than at this point in our sales last year.  Keep going - we would like to pass last year's total of just over $9500 in sales.  Our goal this year is to surpass $9800.  Our FVL Schools Band Program would see a profit of $1960 for needed equipment and supplies if we reach that goal.  Remember also that your FVL Schools individual band accounts will be credited with 20% of your total sales.  So if you sell $200 of product, your accout will receive $40 credit.

Students who did not receive their sales packet last week will be given the packet at rehearsal on Saturday.

Early Prizes for Online Sales will be given out at Saturday's Rehearsal!

Students who have at least 5 items sold in online sales by Saturday, September 22 will receive a giant box of Theater Candy.  Students who have at least 10 items sold will receive two boxes!  We will have an assortment of candies avaialble.  The kids can choose their favorite.  There is still plenty of time yet today to make some more online sales to achieve this prize!

Volunteer Page

For information on Volunteer opportunities, please refer to our Volunteer Page.  Descriptive information is included with each section for Fundraising, Concert Vest, and Attendance Volunteers.

Gretchen Adrian, our Attendance Coordinator, has created an Attendance Sign Up form.  This will allow attendance volunteers to sign up for dates that work for them.  By going to the form, you can see at a glance which dates are filled and which are still open.  More information for attendance volunteers is given on the volunteer page.

Volunteer names and links to email have been added to the page.  This will make it easier for volunteers to contact each other if necessary.  If more would like to volunteer in any area, please email James Neujahr.  We would be happy to add you to our list of volunteers!

Concert Vest Fittings will be Saturday, October 13

We will fit the concert vests for the Cadet Band and Concert Winds students on Saturday, October 13 during the rehearsal.  A few moms or dads is all that is needed.  We have several moms who have volunteerd for our uniform crew, but more would be welcome on fitting day.  Thanks for considering this very important volunteer opportunity!

Then on the day of the concert (November 18) we would need our parent uniform volunteers to assist with distributing the vests before the concert and collecting them after the concert.
