Last Week!

It’s hard to believe that we are entering our final week of school. We will continue to have our Zoom check-ins this week, plus our Zoom Finals as scheduled by the school. Please check Google Classroom for information and Zoom links.

During these Zooms, we will discuss the year, and plans for the upcoming year. We will also discuss how we will handle the following week which includes campus being open for all students to return any materials or instruments that belong to the band program. 

Please attend these sessions!

Ways and Means

While the cancelled performances this semester due to COVID has been very disappointing, I think it has also helped us to appreciate our wonderful Band and Color Guard family,  especially how important these activities are to our kids.  I am so hopeful the fall will allow us the opportunity to see our amazing El Dorado Golden Hawk Marching Band and Color Guard in action.  I, especially, look forward to next Spring and the chance to see and celebrate our Winter Guard, Winter Drumline and Jazz bands.  I am sure you feel the same.

It does seem far away doesn’t it?  But the planning for next year has already begun, and the financial support our groups will need in the way of coaches/staff and materials/supplies is crucial.  Here are some of the things you can do right now to help:

1. Use Shop With Scrip – even if you just use for groceries and gas it will go a long way.  Add in your Target, Walmart and fast food runs and you will be well on your way to minimizing your direct cash outlay.  Many are ScripNow and can be loaded into your virtual ‘wallet’ on your smartphone – or you can always printout if you prefer.  Questions?  Contact Debbie .

2When you shop at Ralph’s be sure to use Community Rewards.

3. Please remember to use Amazon Smile for all your Amazon purchases.  In the search we are listed as El Dorado High School Band Boosters Inc. 

4.  Closet Clean Out?   Unfortunately, our Savers Fundrive will not be scheduled before September.  It would be great if you could set aside and save your clothing and household discards until then and of course, we will let you know as soon as we have it scheduled.  

5. Read every issue of Land of Band

6. Volunteer when you can.
