New Band Uniforms!

Parents and Students,

Please take an opportunity to see the possibilities of the future FHS band uniform. (B3)  In order to achieve the students goal of getting new uniforms for the fall of 2016 the band will need to have a very successful mattress sale and several spring fundraisers.  I am still awaiting the total prices on each piece of the uniform. (hat,plume,jacket,gantlets, pants) I anticipate the total cost of 1 uniform being anywhere between $275 - $425.  With the number of the band anticipated to be over 75 next year that will be a lot of fundraising. If we do not meet our goal for the fall of 2016 we will shoot for the fall of 2017.  

Please help get the word out about our mattress sale which will be at FHS on February 6th from 10am-5pm in the Aux. Gym.  We need all hands on deck.  Again, please get the word out.
