Bagging Groceries at Mike’s Independent December 24/18

Hi everyone,
It is that time again for grocery bagging at Mike’s Independent! It will be on Monday, December 24, 2018 from 9 am until 5 pm. This is a great opportunity to earn credits for the upcoming band trip.

Students can sign up for one shift of one hour until Tuesday, December 18 and then if there are any available shifts left after this date, students can sign up for as many shifts that remain. We would like to see all spots spoken for by Friday, Dec. 21.

It would be great if we could have one parent each hour to assist with supervision. I will be there all day so any help would be much appreciated!

Students are reminded to wear their white band shirts, vests, BLACK DRESS PANTS ( no jeans), and a comfortable pair of shoes. Also, please remember that long hair MUST be tied back.

Please review the shifts that you have signed up for and try your best to come 5 minutes early and meet in the break room upstairs.

Please also remember: no chewing gum, no cell phones, and keep hands clean.

If a student happens to be sick or cannot make the shift they signed up for, please contact me either through email, text or phone call. My number is 902-438-1141

Thanks so much and we look forward to a fun and profitable day 🙂

Kelly Albert

Secret Santa

BPA Executive meeting on Wednesday, December 5 at 5:30 pm

Christmas Wreaths were received on Wednesday, November 28 and pickup by students/parents at the school.  There are two orders of wreaths left in the music room that were not picked up on Wednesday.

Bagging groceries is being planned for December 24 at Mike’s Independent Grocery.  Students are asked to sign up for one time slot until everyone has had a chance to sign up.  Make sure you show up for your time slot you chose to bag groceries, as we had band students who did not show up and the team was left scrambling to fill the spot.  Not showing up by band students prevented others who could have earned credits.

Christmas Concert – due to limited rehearsal time for the Christmas Concert, it is necessary for students to be practicing the Christmas music selections at home on a daily basis.

Wreath Delivery – changed of day to Wednesday, November 28

Image result for christmas wreath black and whiteChristmas Wreaths come tomorrow, Wednesday, November 28 after school.  The BPA executive could use some help from band students and parents bagging and tagging the wreaths, especially from those who have sold wreaths.  The wreaths will be at school around 2:45 pm by Trevor Moase.  He will need help unloading the wreaths into the school and then bagging/sorting them.  The more help we have the less time it will take.  We hope to have wreaths ready for pick up between 4:30-5 pm.
