Food Allergy / Vegetarian Information - Updates Needed

If your child has food allergies or any special dietary needs, please fill out the Food Allergy and Vegetarian Form and send it to Alison Brice at treasurer.milfordband@gmail.com immediately.

Even if you have filled this out in prior years, please send it again so we can ensure our information is up to date. This helps us make sure all students eat safely while at Band Camp and during the marching season.

Senior Corner

Attention Seniors:
  • On Monday 7/22, please plan for a quick meeting immediately after band camp in the cafeteria. You will be providing input to the Boosters on Senior Night activities.
  • Also, make sure to accept the invitation to the Senior page on Facebook, and make sure you are receiving notifications from the page. As planning evolves for your senior activities, we will be using this page to quickly get information and your thoughts. We are looking forward to a great year!

  • Please sign up for Senior Night donations at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050F4EADAB2AAA8-seniors
Also, we need to find senior parent hosts for this season's band parties. Hosts provide the main course and then ask for specific donations for the evening. Please check your calendar for the dates that still need hosts (Aug 30, Sep 13, and Oct 4). If you are available to host one of the dates, please contact Julie Ford (julianne.ford@gmail.com) to let her know how many chaperones you will need and what donations you are requesting.
