Week 2, Thursday Update

September 5, 2014 

Hey Band Families!

GREAT NEWS!  Our volunteers are really helping out this week!  We have quite a few checking in the school office through the RAPTOR system.  The school gets credit for volunteer hours, so having DragonBand volunteers check in ... that will make a dramatic impact on the school's numbers! Woohoo!

However, when parents are checking in, some of our volunteers are not coming up on the "applied" list.  This could be as simple as having forgotten to hit "submit" at the end of the application process or if you are renewing last year's application, simply forgetting to add RRHS to your application.  Never-the-less... I hate to do this,but when you have about 3-5 minutes to spare, could you go to https://hrsapp.roundrockisd.org/appentry/ and resubmit your application.  

Thanks for 

your help!

Patty Langlet, RRBB President

Couple Things on the Horizon

CAR RAFFLE SALES:

Raffle ticket sales are going well, but we are really relying on each of our Dragon Band families to sell their 10 tickets!  This is key to our reaching the goal of  3500 tickets sold!  Thanks to those families who have sold and turned in their 10 tickets and money…and to those who have sold extra books as well!!  We appreciate your time and efforts.  We really couldn’t do what we do without you!

Dates are listed below for the next few weeks of drop off times and locations.  Alison will be in the same location each time – under the trees near the picnic tables across from the band practice lot.  Come to pick up a bit early, drop off your tickets, and stay for a few minutes to listen to our kids rehearse...they sound better each and every time!

Friday, September 5th at 6:30pm

Thursday, September 11th at 6:30pm

Thursday, September 18th at 6:30pm (turn in all unsold tickets at this time!)

 ***September 18th will also be the day to drop off any UNSOLD tickets so that they can be sold at the football games.  Please bring these to Alison on the 18th ONLY.  Unsold tickets will not be taken before then.  Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.


SHOW SHIRTS, YARD SIGNS AND DECALS:

Yes, we have said last call before - but seriously - this is it.  If you still have items you ordered at Everything Day and have not yet picked them up... next Friday is the day!  Chris and Lori will bring all those orders to the football game next Friday Night.  PLEASE!!! If you haven't picked up your order yet... stop by and get them next Friday!  And don't forget to stop by our Spirit Sales tables for cups, sunglasses, shirts, umbrellas, scarves and so much more!  h


PROPS are almost ready to go... a couple more workshops and they will be set.  The signup to work on the props team should be up and running by the end of the day... check back if you'd like to join this fun team!


GAME DAY MEALS -   This is a convenience for those who want a "to-go" lunch, but don't want "to go" get it:).  They generally run $7.50 to $10 per meal - depending on the vendor.  Once we have next week's order form, we will post it here for your convenience.  The order forms can always be found in the band hall - the next week's order forms will be available as soon as we finish the current week's meal.  Orders are due at 9 am every Wednesday morning, and no late orders are taken. 

A schedule of meals will be posted here soon.


Thanks to the hard work of our volunteer coordinators and section parents, and your overwhelming response... this season volunteer status is looking pretty good!  Just a few spots for next week's concessions are still open, and even later in the year looks pretty good too!  Thanks for your tremendous response.  Chaperons, podiums and spirit sales  are looking good too!.
