All students MUST be properly dressed. I have just ordered 50 more bow ties for the guys. You are from now on going to need your own to keep. They are only $3 and need to be paid for before I give it to you. I expect EVERYONE to be in either a tux shirt or a white button up dress shirt. If you do not have one we have a few on a first come first serve basis. You must have the black tux pants and jacket. No exceptions will be made. Dress shoes are required as well and LONG black socks. If I can see skin they are not long enough. We need to prepare now and remember that how we look matters.
Charms is a tool we will be using as a central location to keep track of finances, uniforms, instruments/equipment, playing tests, and other communication tools.

I want to encourage everyone to get involved this year. We have so many great things planned for all of our groups. We will be participating in the 2016 Peach Bowl this yea. This trip will include performances for everyone. Our concert band will participate in a festival as will our jazz band. All of our students will participate in the Peach Bowl parade and a mass performance of all the bands attending the Peach Bowl. We have a great seasonplanned for the Mighty Sailor Band again competing in the FMBC circuit and attending our FBA music performance assessment. Our concert bands will again be performing outstanding concerts this year and will be attending our FBA MPA as well. I will continue the Sweet Jazz event for our Admirals but will also be adding a dinner/dance in late Novemeber and will focus on the music of the swing era. We will host the homecoming dance, sell concessions at football games, and many other fun and outstanding events and activities.
We need your help. Please get involved. Start by joining our band boosters. The cost is only $5. I want to make a big push for this this year. If your child is in marching band you can join at our mandatory meeting on August 11. Everyone else can join at our first regular booster meeting in September. Our meetings are posted under the calendar link.
I want to thank a few people for already stepping up. In addition to our elected Band Boosters officers James Stubbs will be our equipment coordinator and will be putting together a fun group of people to help the Mighty Sailor Band move and set up equipment at football games and our contest. Hanna Crowder will be our volunteer coordinator. She will help make sure we have chaperones and other volunteers as needed at our events this year. And Tina Crumpton will be our Freshmen Liason. She will be reaching out to all of our freshmen parents offering help and advice throughout the year. We have other important postions that will be filled in the near future. It takes a great team of people all working together in a positive way to make everything run smooth and I really appreciate those that have already stepped up. You can find email links to all of these people on the Boosters page of our website. Just click on their name.
