Fall Fundraiser
Packets for the 2019 Fall Fundraiser have distributed to students in all band programs (grades 6-12). All orders and payments are due by Monday, November 4, and item pickup will be in the MHS Band Room on Saturday, December 14. This year's fundraiser features citrus from Florida Indian River Groves, Wooden Spoon Cookie Dough, Butter Braids, Yankee Candle products, SUDZ soaps, and poinsettias from Grant's Greenhouse.

Make-Up Photos

Make-up photos with Dingo Photography have been scheduled for Thursday, October 17. Sessions will begin right after school. Band and Guard members who need a make-up session should sign up for the earliest slot possible using this SignupGenius link.

Please wear your Band or Guard uniform and bring your instrument or weapon/flag. Have your hair styled and make-up presentable (marchers will not be wearing shakos). Shoes won't show, so don't worry about them.

Note that this schedule is subject to change, due to Thursday's Band rehearsal being moved up for stadium availability. Please stay tuned to the Facebook feed for any changes.

Indy Posters

Have you started thinking about your Indy poster? Posters should be 22" wide by 28" tall, and are tentatively scheduled for hanging on Tuesday 11/12. If you haven't started collecting pictures yet, take advantage of the SmugMug albums assembled by our Booster photographers (link here).

Freshman and 8th grade parents--if you haven't seen information about the posters yet, you'll be receiveing it shortly. Please note that these are a surprise for first-time marchers...please keep them a secret!

3rd Quarter Cookies

Please keep bringing in cookie donations! Following their halftime performance at each home football game, the Band and Guard celebrate with cookies and drinks in the end zone. We also invite the visiting band to join in. Donations of prepackaged cookie can be left with a director or in the cookie bin, which is located in the uniform closet (look for the yellow lid).

The timing and setup of 3rd quarter cookies prevents us from being able to closely monitor whether cookies contain nuts. We ask that anyone with a nut allergy avoid the cookie booth.
Cookies!
