News and Notes
WELCOME TO SAVANNA BAND!
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!
Football games, Cow Chip Bingo, and MORE all highlight the month of September. We can always use help at football games (First time? Come shadow with someone else to learn) and future performances.
Cow Chip Bingo is SUNDAY, Sept 7, 1pm at the practice field. Students need to turn in their ticket stubs (names on the back) with payment by Friday, Sept 5. 100% of ticket sales is credited to their Fair Share… many parents purchase these to pay that off and get some chances to win some great prizes! First plop wins the ticket holder $250, second plop wins the ticket holder $500, and third plop pays out $750! Students selling the winning ticket also earn cash.
How does it work? We rope off the practice field and we have a “grid” representing a plot for every ticket sold. At 1pm on Sunday, we let three well-fed cows into our grid area – and their “plops” choose the winners. Cow walkers are needed – come out for a photo op and take a cow for a spin – all while supporting your Powerhouse. Winner need not be present to win, but it’s fun to see how the field is fertilized.

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.
