Band Parents! “Glitter” needs you! The Show is jam-packed with Band kids & we are short on parent/familyvolunteers this year. It’s not only a showcase of our students’ talent, but the primary fundraiser for the school, PLUS our Seniors will be fundraising at the Show!
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.

Details of the Day…..
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.
A big thank you to everyone who participated in our Panera Bread Fundraiser! From the crowd there last night I will call it a success!
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! 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!
