SCHS Band - Monday Night Rundown (11-30-2020)

Good evening SCHS Band Members and Families, 

Here is your Monday Night Rundown for the week of November 30: (Week 7 of Q2)

Class Fees
Student activity statements were emailed to parents on 11/30/2020. We ask that parents make arrangements to pay any remaining balances as soon as possible.

Amazon and Holiday Shopping
Do you hate fundraisers as much as we do? Well here's the solution. Click the link below before you do any Amazon shopping. The band gets a rebate.

All you have to do is click the link below. Then go to town!

This keeps us from having to peddle considerable wears of both questionable value and expense like wrapping paper, candles, or the dreaded holiday tins on our band families.

Amazon and Holiday Shopping
If you plan on doing any holiday shopping through Amazon, did you know that you can help the SCHS Band? By clicking the link below, you can purchase your items through Amazon as you normally do. The SCHS Band will get a percentage of your purchase through a donation through Amazon. All you have to do is click the link and then shop. That's it. This is basically Amazon's version of Kroger or Publix rebates for non-profits.

SCHS Band Trip Status
We are in the process of trying to get a few items confirmed for the SCHS Band trip to Hollywood/LA which is now projected to take place in the Spring Semester of 2022. The projected time frame will be close to spring break. However RCS has not released the 2021-2022 academic calendar as of this email. In the meantime, for band members and their families who are already signed up for the trip. there is no further action to take at this time. For band members and their families who did not sign-up for the trip last year, we will have a new trip kick-off meeting (either virtual or in-person) at a later time next semester. As we continue to get information, we will keep everyone informed.
