Cookies Needed for Marching Season

 

We need cookies!  We serve 225 students/staff 2 cookies each for lunch and dinner. That is at least 500 cookies on Competition days.  Wow! That is a lot of cookies.  Please bring baked goods Saturday morning and look for our Cookie Lady aka Stacey Stone in her gray van. Or contact Stacey at Stone1016@yahoo.com.

Parents and Students — Carefully review these instructions: 

·         Bring money for gloves if needed.  $8.00 

·         Have your band camp shirt to wear under your uniform.

·         Wear long black socks – plain, no stripes! (It’s good just to keep an extra pair of socks in your bag)

·         Bring the black shorts, deodorant, hand towel, wipes for your red bag.

·         If there is a problem with your uniform, see a member of the uniform team.

·         We always appear in public dressed in full uniform unless Mr. Smith or Mr. Bishop have informed the students otherwise.

Hair should not touch the collar when dressed in uniform, therefore, students with longer hair should bring items to secure their hair in a top knot or purchase a wig cap.  Wig caps can be purchased from the Uniform Team for $1 for a package of 2 caps.” 

Have class – YOU are the “PRIDE OF THE BLUEGRASS”®! Always support other performing groups! Refuse to say anything negative, no matter what might be said to you.
