CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR MARCHING BAND ON A PHENOMENAL PERFORMANCE AT SUPER REGIONALS!

We could not be more proud of every single member of the Marching Band who worked together to put on an incredible show yesterday at Super Regionals!  Your hours of hard work and dedication were evident out on the field. Thanks to everyone who helped to make yesterday a huge success! Find links to SmugMug Galleries from our Super Regionals Day below.

SPIRIT COMMITTEE UPDATE

Calling all Volunteers!

 

Saturday, October 30th, please join the Spirit Committee from 1-5pm during practice in the Teachers Lounge. We have a number of projects to complete as we get closer to Grand Nats! We will be making posters to help send off our band to Grand Nationals! For those that are new to Band, this is a tradition! The parents and families hold up spirit signs as the buses leave for Grand Nats! We will also be making Mason Band jewelry and buttons for the upcoming MSBA competition at Mason on November 6th.  We will provide poster board and markers for the signs, but please bring any supplies you may have as well!

 

Wednesday, November 10, we are decorating lockers and hallways at school  to wish our band members good luck for Grand Nats! We need some volunteers to help on this day right after school, at 3:00pm. If you are able to help, please let Michelle Pinsky know at spirit@masonbandboosters.com.

 

Thursday, November 11, we will be sending off the band in the Marion’s Pizza parking lot as they start the journey to Grand Nats at 1:30pm. We would love to see as many people as possible to send them off in spirit!

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE LIBERTY WAY CHICK-FIL-A

Thank you to the Liberty Way Chick-Fil-A for providing our kids a fantastic send-off breakfast for our Super Regionals Trip!  We sincerely appreciate your willingness to open your restaurant 2 hours early on Saturday in order for our kids to be well fueled and ready to go for their extra long day.  It certainly was a yummy way to begin our morning. We are so grateful for your partnership!

MSBA CHAMPIONSHIPS NOVEMBER 6TH

The MSBA Championships are quickly approaching.  Please be on the lookout for an email this week in regards to volunteer sign-ups for the event.  Just like the Mason Invitational, we will need several parent volunteers to make the event a success.  Thank you in advance for your help.

SAVE THE DATE FOR THE MARCHING BAND AWARDS NIGHT

Please mark the evening of November 30th on your calendar for this year’s marching band awards night.  This will be a fun evening to celebrate each band member's achievements throughout the marching band season and to reminisce on all of the amazing moments we have all shared together.  You won’t want to miss it! The event will take place in the High School Auditorium.  The exact time will be announced in the near future.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ELECTIONS COMING UP!

The Mason Band Boosters Executive Committee elections are coming up in December!  We are looking for leaders passionate about our program to help lead our Boosters organization into the future!  We will have several openings on our Executive committee due to parents who will be “graduating” with their Seniors.  If you think you would like to become more involved and bring new ideas to our team, please reach out to Shannon Wielinga at president@masonbandboosters.com or any current Executive Committee member to discuss.  We would love to talk to you!
