Greetings Ram Band Parents and Students,


Welcome to week two of band season!  It has been a busy week and I have enjoyed meeting many of the new parents and students – I hope to meet many more of you over the coming weeks. Here are a few important items from the BPA for this week:




Please remember to send in all of the forms by the end of this week.  Form 5 and Form 9 are very important. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. I will have a student list posted on the boards in the band room of missing forms. Thanks for your support on this!




CAR SHOW, 27-August-2016 at CHS, 11:00am – 3:00pm

  • There’s excitement in the air as this one gets closer – just a few days away!

  • IMPORTANT!  We need parent and student participation to pull off this show.  We need more people to sign up!

  • Go to ramband.com, click the Red Fundraiser Volunteer Events button, select the “Car Show Volunteers Needed” link, select your desired job, and submit.  It’s that easy!



  • Thanks to those of you who have already hit the road and brought in ads and sponsors! Please keep up the good work! There is still time to get in the game – I feel a section competition in the air! Here is a link to the Sponsorship Form on ramband.com:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-rLrktWxPWYdDlnd1hBd2hJTk0/view?usp=sharing
