Greetings Ram Band Parents and Students,


Welcome to the first week of school!  Congratulations on getting through band camp!  I enjoyed meeting many of the students and new parents on Thursday evening and look forward to meeting more of you at the member meeting on Tuesday September 6th at 6pm in the auditorium.  Here are a few important items from the BPA for this week:



  • Please remember to send in all of your forms as soon as possible.

  • I will post the missing form sheet in the band room on Tuesday night.  

  • Form 3 and Form 4 needed to ensure accessories are ordered in time!

  • Let me know if you have any questions. 




  • 72 cars came out for a beautiful day – excellent turnout for our inaugural year!  We exceeded our budget expectations by $300!

  • Special thanks to our chairs Jeff and Gena Shankman!!

  • Thank you to the parents and students who gave of their time in advance and on the day of the show.  We could not have done this without you!
