Notes of Encouragement for State Finals


Last chance to volunteer to write Notes of Encouragement for our band students!  There are many sections still available for this special tradition:  Clarinets, Color Guard, Saxophones, and Trumpets.

optional activity and long standing tradition was started many years ago by a band parent to show the Band and Staff our love and support during this busiest time of the competition season.  This is a special tradition and the notes will be distributed to the students on the bus as they travel to KMEA State Finals on October 29.  Anyone may choose to participate and write notes of encouragement for a specific section (e.g., trombones, color guard, etc.). The maximum number of notes assigned will be 10. 

Review the available sections and email your choice to Brenda Boggs at bsbboggs@yahoo.com.  You will receive a list of students and a sample note next week.

Notes must be returned no later than Friday, October 22.  Watch e-news for collection dates/times.  Notes can be returned to Karina Lancaster.

Tips for Note Preparation:

§  Short, hand-written, anonymous note of support and encouragement!  Notes are not intended to suggest or emphasize winning.

§  Decorate paper with stickers, use scrapbook paper with music symbols, or whatever you choose.

§  Add your special touch!
