TUSTIN PARADE – Period 1 & Colorguard – Saturday, October 7th

SEE ATTACHED FLYERS FOR MORE INFO – CALL TIME IS 7:15a (7:00a for Colorguard)

FAIR SHARE REMINDER Just a friendly reminder that if you have not turned in your Fair Share donation along with a blue paper, to please do so soon. Orchestra students may either pay the Intermediate or Advanced amount now and then we can settle up any changes depending on which groups the students end up in.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC CELL PHONE/DEVICE POLICY

The schoolwide policy at BYMS is that phones are to be turned off and put away unless teachers instruct students otherwise (Code of Conduct: https://goo.gl/RZNfAm ) There have been several instances this week where students have been asked several times to put away their cell phones as they are disruptive and distracting during class. If a phone is confiscated, it is sent to the office for the day and must be picked up by the parent, per BYMS policy. Many students have tuner apps or metronome apps on their phone, which is wonderful! However at this time, we are not using those apps during class. Students may be allowed to use their devices on a case-by-case basis. Please remind your student of the school cell phone policy.

VOLUNTEERS – 2 MORE NEEDED FOR TUSTIN PARADE

We still need 2 more Period 1 parent volunteers for chaperoning/riding on the bus for our first parade. Duties include giving the kids water, ice chips, shining shoes, lint-rolling pants, bus chaperone, hair, plumes and any other general assistance for the day. Signing up is easy!  Please go to the link https://goo.gl/3ebs32 or email Rosie Franco at viceprez@bymsmusic.org to sign-up for volunteer opportunities.

NEEDED FOR THIS WEEKEND: WATER DONATIONS

Please help keep our students hydrated during our marching band events by donating water in the form of 16 oz AND 1 gallon bottles.  Water bottles can be dropped off in the band room before or after school.  Thank you for your donations!
