WMPA Updates 8/15/19

Hello band parents!

Welcome to week two of band camp!  The kids are working hard!  Thank you so much for all of your support—parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers!!!!  The MZB would not be able to do what it can do without all of your support!!  Many of you have already signed up to help us with chaperoning, volunteering in the snack stand or donating items for the snack stand.  We appreciate this!!  This is so helpful in ensuring a successful season for the MZB.  We still have plenty of openings for all of the above so if you or a family member are available, please sign up on the Signup Genius for the snack stand and/or email me at loriskibo0506@gmail.com or text at 610-217-4567 for chaperoning or truck driving.

Just some reminders for the upcoming weeks.  Our first football game is next Friday already!! 

-Parent Preview Night is next Thursday, August 22nd.  The parent portion of the evening will commence at 7:30 in the football stadium.  Please join us for a first sneak peek at the 2019 MZB field show!!

-All white lottery calendar stubs/money and yellow lottery calendar stubs are due that night as well, Thursday, August 22nd.

-All pizza order forms/money are due by the end of practice on Monday, August 19th.

-Reminder- kids will need plain black shirts for underneath their uniforms.  The best place to get them is either A.C. Moore or Michael’s where there are frequently 2 for $5 or 3 for $10 deals.  They also need to wear high black socks.  No ankle socks and no colors.

-The start of the football season can be very hot.  For the safety of the kids, we always travel with a minimum of two cases of water per event to make sure they all stay properly hydrated.  They work hard and sweat a lot! We are asking that every family donate at least one case of water to help with this.  They can be sent in to the band room at any time.  Thank you so much!

-The next parent meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 10th, 2019 at 7:30pm in the HS Cafeteria.  Please join us! We value everyone’s ideas, suggestions and support!!!

Thank you everyone!  We are so excited for what looks to be another excellent MZB season!!!!
