Early morning concert band for Wednesday, October 18 is CANCELLED

Concert band is cancelled this morning, Wed., Oct. 18.  Please pass the message along to others.



A big thank you to Sandra McKenna and Emma Gallant who have been here in the mornings outfitting our band students with the uniform shirts, vest, and bowties.  There are still 13 students to get outfitted for a shirt/vest.

The ladies are here tomorrow morning, Thursday, October 5 for the last fitting.  The order for shirts has to go in to get them back before November 10th.  Payment will need to be made at this time.  Prices are listed in the September Newsletter given out at the AGM meeting and during early morning band rehearsal.

Grocery Bagging info. from Francis

Hi Band Parents and Students,

Grocery bagging at Sobey’s is just 5 days away (Saturday, October 7). Since all the shifts have not been signed up for (24 of the 80 shifts are still open), we now open it up and students can sign up for as many shifts as they’d like.

Remember a student can make around $15 an hour so if they don’t have any credits yet, this is a quick and easy way to get credits to pay for their first trip deposit.

I ask that all parents and students sign in and check the schedule. At every grocery bagging, we have students who sign up and forget to inform their parents OR have parents who sign up their child and forget to inform them and then find out they can’t make the shifts they are signed up for. Even if you don’t think you or your child is scheduled, please check to make sure.

We are still in need of parents to supervise the students and help roll coins. There are 23 slots needed by parents and right now only 7 are filled. Sheila Simmonds has agreed to take on organizing the grocery bagging events this year and it would be a big help for her to have the support of other parents so she isn’t there all by herself.

Thanks and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Francis Wiegers
