Band Parent Welcome Night!


6:30 September 16 - Little Theater, MHS

All band parents/guardians are invited to attend the Band Parent Welcome Night hosted by the Band Parent Organization each fall. Meet the band directors and Band Parent Organization board members and learn about the upcoming year in band and how you can help and support our students. We hope to see you there!


Uniform fitting

Uniform fitting for sophomores, juniors and seniors who do not have the required marching uniform will be held in the band hallway Aug. 5-8 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The required marching shoes, which cost $35, also will be sized, so bring socks; payment for the shoes will be collected when the shoes are distributed in September. There are a few used shoes available for $10 (paid immediately), first come, first served. Please make every effort to get your uniform during these times, as there will be limited fitting times available once the school year begins; plus, the earlier you get your uniform, the greater the size selection.  In September, freshmen will pay for the MHS band t-shirt, which serves as part of their marching uniform and as the pep band uniform.

Concert and Old Abe bands must have marching uniforms for the Sept 13 football game. Freshman and Eagle bands need their marching uniforms for the Homecoming parade on Sept. 27.

Stop selling and start earning! Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that allows families to raise money for Memorial High School Bands AND your Band student. Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards.
 
You purchase gift cards from MHS Band at face value, and our MHS Band Scrip Coordinator orders those cards from Local Retailers and the Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price (a percentage established by each retailer). The difference is shared 50-50 between your Band Student and MHS Band. It’s really that simple!
 
When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. Great Lakes Scrip Center offers more than 700 of the country’s biggest retailers, including grocery, department stores, gas statons, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Several local retailers offer an even higher percentage! Just by using scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work!

The Scrip fundraising program is coming soon to MHS Band!  This is an excellent opportunity to raise funds for our organization and your student without selling!
 
If you aren't already familiar with the Scrip program, please watch the video and read the attachment for a great explanation about Scrip fundraising!
 
 
 

Monthly Scrip example (earnings split 50/50 between the band and the student):

  • Festival (3%) $300 in cards purchased earns $4.50 for the band and $4.50 per student
  • Mega Holiday (10%) $100 in cards purchased earns $5 for the band and $5 for the student
  • Buffalo Wild Wings (8%) $50 in cards purchased earns $2 for band and $2 for the student

For this example, earnings for the month = $11.50 for the band AND $11.50 for your student and potential for the year = $138 for the band AND your student, which carries over year to year!

Keep in mind, this example is before taking into account any off-campus lunch purchases your student makes on a regular basis, as well as holiday shopping, and other purchases that can made with gift cards!

More info is coming as we roll out this exciting program, so keep an eye on out for additional emails!!!

Thanks!
