We’ll offer one final opportunity for families to pick up refund checks that they requested via the Cleveland Refund google form.  This is truly the last call; refunds will not be available after 3/16.  Any checks or refunds not picked up will be turned into a donation to the Band Boosters. 

WGI INDIANAPOLIS REGIONAL COMPETITION - THIS WEEKEND!

The Competitive Winter Guard will travel to Indianapolis this coming Saturday, 3/19 to compete in their one and only Winter Guard International (WGI) competition of the season! Coming off their terrific performance at Carlisle HS yesterday with a new tarp and upgraded show, this weekend’s event is a regional competition where our students will be competing against some of the best winter guards in their class in the country!  Their preliminary performance is at 1:32pm at Greenfield Central HS in Indianapolis.  Best of luck to these hard-working, talented students as they have a chance to move on to Semi-Finals later that day and Finals on Sunday, 3/20 at Warren Central HS.  For more information, please click HERE.    Competitive Guard Students, please see Erica’s email for detailed itinerary and instructions for the weekend.

QUICK AND EASY FUNDRAISER

Mason Bands is partnering with Sensation Research through March 13th.  Sensation Research is a local consumer research company that offers great opportunities to partner for fundraising.  All that we ask you to do is fill out this survey and share with family and friends: https://sensation.eyeqsoft.com/eq/r1/pblc4

 

For every survey received, the band receives $5.00.   Sensation Research is looking for members who are interested in a part time position with Sensation Research.  If you decide this is something you would like to do, and you take a position with Sensation Research, they will pay the band an additional $20 per person. Any person who takes a position with Sensation Research earns $17/hour for themselves.  Even if you do not have any interest in a position with Sensation Research, if you are willing to fill out the survey, the band receives the $5.00.  Any contact information received through this fundraiser WILL NOT BE SHARED OR SOLD. It is for gauging interest in a position or future consumer studies at Sensation Research only.

MHS RECITAL NIGHTS

This event is being run in place of OMEA Solo and Ensemble. Please note, 7-9th grade solo and ensemble will not be an option for Mason students, as the timing does not align with our Spring Break. Our Recital Night will serve as our replacement for OMEA Solo & Ensemble going forward. Interested students should have already completed their registration.
