Good morning –
Hopefully, everyone (kids especially) have had a chance to sleep in today. Our kids worked so hard this weekend, and we should all be very proud of them!
First of all, thank you to all of the parents who chaperoned and brought in snacks and water for Friday’s game. Another win for Hayfield! (P.S. At this rate, don’t make solid plans for mid-November. I see a possible play-off scenario in our future…)
Second – Tag Day. Thanks to everyone’s hard work, we were able to make an additional $4,827.16 on Tag Day #2, bringing our grand total to $14,231.16 for both days! That’s amazing! Thank you very much to our Tag Day Chair, Theresa Larsen, for coordinating the days and getting us all out into the neighborhoods armed with envelopes and orange receipts. Big thanks to all of the parents who drove, organized, and counted money. Thank you to Mr. Burke for coming in early both days – especially after teaching all week and Friday night games. And most of all, thank you to the kids who sacrificed their Saturday mornings to go door-to-door explaining to strangers what this band program means to them. Their enthusiasm astounds me, and I am so proud of them!
And as if that wasn’t enough…our kids went to competition on Saturday evening and won SECOND PLACE in their class! We got a big trophy and also scored “Best Percussion”!
Looking ahead to next week –
· Marching Band rehearsals Tuesday – Thursday, 3:15 – 5:15pm
· Home Football Game – Friday, 9/22 – there is no school this day, so the band reports to at 5:15pm
· Please Note: The Band Booster meeting previously scheduled for tomorrow, 9/18, will now be an officers’ planning session. Please join us for the next scheduled Booster meeting on October 16 at 7:00pm.
Thank you all again for your time and support!
Hayfield Band Boosters, President
