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.
Christmas 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.

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.
