News and Notes
WELCOME TO SAVANNA BAND!
SECTIONALS and BAND CAMP
Sectionals start the week of July 7 and throughout July for all sections – dates/times will be posted on the Savannaband.com site (or Facebook!), keep an eye out and update your calendar. Band Camp starts Monday, August 11 – be sure you have practiced and are ready to go! New Parents, make sure to check out the New Parents page for more information on what your student needs to succeed. There will be a mandatory parent meeting Monday Aug 11, and uniform fittings from Aug 12-15 in the evenings. Parents are requested to attend these evening fittings so we ensure we have all paperwork and personal items taken care of.
ORANGE COUNTY FAIR
We have been approached by a concessionaire with the opportunity for students and families to work hours at the OC Fair in Costa Mesa. This is a great way for folks to earn real dollars toward their fair share, without having to sell anything! The OC Fair runs for five weeks, from July 11 – August 10, and the vendor will work around your vacations and rehearsal schedules, all while giving your student valuable work experience. Work 50 hours over the course of the fair, and your whole Fair Share is taken care of! Contact Diane at email@example.com for more details. Download your work permit first, and sign up today!
Save the Dates of Monday, July 14 and Monday, Aug 18 on your calendars! Bring the whole family and invite your friends for a fundraiser night at Lazy Dog restaurant in Brea, and Savanna Band & Colorguard will donate 15% the proceeds back to the group. Print the flyer and bring along with you – your ENTIRE check is eligible for donation proceeds.
The Boosters have moved forward with setting up all our information with a new system called CHARMS — a back office program that will help us streamline many operations in one place. What does that mean to you? You can find your student’s statements online now, updated in real time; see volunteer opportunities for events online, and more! Go to Charms Office and enter the school ID of SavannaHSBand. To enter the student area and see your personal information, enter your Student’s ID number (found on their school ID card). You may change this password at any time. We hope you will see the benefits of this new program!

We cannot support our POWERHOUSE PROGRAM without everyone’s support. This coming fall we are breaking the fair share into four SMALLER chunks, with due dates listed below. Your commitment to our program is vital; please visit the “Building a Powerhouse” page to get further details.
