MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND FESTIVAL!

datePosted on 12:48, March 11th, 2015 by The Webmaster

Middle School District Band Festival is this week.  District Band Festival is Friday, March 13 at Mattawan High School (56720 Murray St., Mattawan, 49071) in their auditorium.  You are encouraged to come out and support your student!  I’ve attached a program of the day so that you may see who else is performing.

7th grade performs at 2:55 pm

8th grade performs at 7:05 pm

Details of the Day….. 

    • Students will stay after school and be transported by bus to Mattawan HS.  I am HIGHLY encouraging students to wear their uniform to school on Friday.
    • GLBPA will be feeding your student lunch at school due to this being a half day.  If your student choose to not take our lunch, they will need to bring their own cold lunch.   They need to bring money for the concession stand at MHS for dinner and snacks.
    • Parents may pick up students AFTER the rating is posted from Mattawan, but must check out with me before leaving.  We will have only one bus returning to GLMS.  If you are unable to be at MHS and you would like your student to ride home from MHS with a friend, I have attached a permission slip form for your convenience.  Please only fill this out if your student is going home with someone other than you.
    • If a student needs to return by bus, we will be returning to GLMS at approximately 9:00 pm.  We will be meeting you in the parking lot between the middle school and Richland Elementary.  Thank you in advance for your courteousness of being on time.

Thanks to Mr. McWilliams  for driving our equipment trailer.  Thanks to Mrs. McWilliams, Mr. Turmo, Mrs. Pennock, and Mrs. Cooke for riding our busses and chaperoning.  Thanks to Mrs. Meints, Mrs. Shumaker, Mrs. Randall, and Mrs. Holm for helping chaperone as well.

Scrip Orders Due Tomorrow!

datePosted on 08:10, March 11th, 2015 by The Webmaster

Scrip orders are due tomorrow! If we get enough participants with Scrip, its possible that the Bands wouldn’t have to do any other fundraisers…wouldn’t that be nice? I just bought some Scrip cards and its really easy, and they are for groceries, gas, home improvement stores etc, things I need to buy anyway, and at stores I already go to. Convenient and easy, what more could we ask for in a fundraiser?Scrip orders are due tomorrow!

Easy Fundraising with Script!

datePosted on 21:41, February 23rd, 2015 by The Webmaster
EASY FUNDRAISING WITH SCRIPT! This applies to Middle School and High School Band families and supporters. Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that enables families to raise money for their non-profit organization (NPO). Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards.
You purchase gift cards from your organization at face value, and your coordinator orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for your organization. It’s really that simple!  Orders are Due every Thursday!
Great Lakes Scrip Center offers over 300 of the country’s biggest brands, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work! Please see the attached information or visit our website www.gulllakeband.com for more info! Register atwww.shopwithscrip.com
