News and Notes
WELCOME TO SAVANNA BAND!
We are now full swing in the fall competition schedule.. Saturdays from here to Thanksgiving will be booked! Be sure to link to the official band calendar at savannaband.com so you are kept up to date with the latest details. Competition day information will be posted there only.
Come out and support your student! We have a large and loud group, but love to have as many folks cheering in the stands as possible. Join us!
Football games and tournaments all highlight the month of October. We can always use extra hands at each show — First time? Come shadow with someone else to learn.Everyone you see helping out started by showing up and asking what they could do to help. Get involved, we have fun, you won’t regret it.
Our annual Cookie Dough fundraiser will begin at the end of October, featuring Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, cheesecakes, and more. All proceeds will be credited to your fair share, check out the Fundraising page for more info.
The Savanna Field Tournament is Saturday, Nov 15. All hands are needed on deck; we need the most help in the evening when the large groups are performing. (We will even let you walk away and watch our show if you’d like). One shift is required from every student, some even work multiple shifts. Parents and family and friends are encouraged to help out, this is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Sign ups are happening now in Charms. The November parent meeting is the mandatory tournament information meeting, see you all there!
The Booster board has 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 information 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!
