Hey Band Families!!!
Wow! Tuesday night's event was amazing. What an extraordinary family - both the Jaillet family, and the Dragon Family at large. Thank you also to Maurice Robertson at Home Depot, Corner Bakery, Freddy's, and Bush's Chicken as well as Henry Huey and Jim Machajewski - for their generosity in helping pull this thing together! We just received notice that KVUE has our video on their home page... check it out... http://www.kvue.com/story/news/features/2014/08/20/round-rock-high-school-band-takes-als-ice-bucket-challenge/14339841/
Please note that if you would like to make a donation to the ALS fund... the address is http://alsa.org. Students will be on hand with a bucket to collect any cash donations at Parent Preview - and we will forward those in one lump sum to the ALS fund.
