We are in need of tissues for the classroom!!

The change of weather is resulting in runny noses. We are currently using the roll of brown paper towels from the restroom. Holds a lot more, but definitely not as gentle on the nose. 😆
Thank you in advance for helping!

Due to recent changes and new limitations with the text service “Remind 101”, we have had to adjust our ways of communication with the members and families of our program.  I am only allowed to have 10 “classes” with less than 150 subscribers in each class.

Therefore, I have had to archive each class, empty out the roster, and reset the class code for all to rejoin. To accommodate our huge Booster Organization, I have split you up by last name!

See the “Remind 101” section below.
We will also be using the “Band” App again this year! This app serves us in a similar way that Facebook and Instagram work. We will be able to share pictures, view the calendar, and of course communicate through this app!

See the “Band App” section below.
