Band Trip

As mentioned at the Annual General Meeting of band parents/students back in September, the festival trip to London/Toronto, Ontario is costing $900.  We organized an instalment payment plan.  The first instalment of $200 is on Friday, November 16.  This is after the bagging groceries event at Mike’s Independent so any band credits earned at it or previous fundraisers from last year can be used to help pay for this first payment.  If you are writing out a cheque, it is to be made out to KISH Band.


Message from Sandra McKenna re: Christmas Wreath sales and uniforms

Good Morning Everyone!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and survived the high winds and rain without any damage!
The Executive realized that we had selected Nov. 9th as the day to hand in forms not realizing that it was a PD day.  So, we have decided to extend the date for the forms to be handed back in, until Tuesday, November 13th, when the students return to school.  Hope sales are going well for everyone! 😊 Thank you for sending me the numbers of the wreaths your children have sold!
Great job everyone!  Right now Faith Shea has the leading sales of wreaths at 50 sold! 😃
As you all know, the first performance is this Wednesday for Remembrance Day.  I am hoping to either pick up the new band shirts today or tomorrow and will be into the school to hand out uniforms again.  Please check with your Band Student about their uniforms, as they are needed before they perform or do grocery bagging this weekend.  There are 14 students yet to pay and pick up their uniforms. I will send out another email…aren’t you excited!? 😉    When I have the shirts and to what day I will be at the school, either tomorrow morning or Wednesday morning.
Hope everyone has a great day and week ahead!
Remember any questions feel free to ask!

Update on Uniforms from Sandra

Good Afternoon All!😊
I am sending out this email to you in regards to the band uniforms.  Your child has been fitted for a band uniform that they will be needing on Wednesday morning for Remembrance Day and again on Saturday if they are signed up to bag groceries.  For some,  new shirts are supposed to be done tomorrow (was hoping today but no luck there) and I will be at the school Wednesday morning at practice to receive the necessary payment and to hand out the uniforms. 😊
If your child has dropped out or has decided not to join band please let me know so I can remove your name/email from the list, so, you don’t feel like you are being harassed for no reason! 😜
Thank you for your help!
