BAND WEAR for 2018!

We are selling official band volunteer shirts as well as extra purple band shirts.  We are asking that all those who help out with the band wear either the official grey volunteer shirt or the official purple band shirt.  Orders are due by Thurs. 9/6 and should be here for the game on 9/21.  Don't forget to order your student and extra shirt or two...they are really good to have when we have back to back games and competitions.

We are also offering band booster memberships to all adults---cost is $10 per person and this makes you an official, voting member of our booster club.  Simply write your name and phone number on an envelope and enclose cash or check made payable to FHS Band Boosters--have your student place in the purple mailbox.  Pre-printed envelopes are available in the band room.

 Booster Notes

PARENTS:

To participate in Band Activities students must meet the standards set by the EPISD.  Students who have a grade of 69 or lower in a class may not perform with the band until they average a passing grade (70) or higher in all classes.  A student's ineligibility to perform with the band, has a negative impact on the individual and collective effort of the ensemble.

We encourage that Parents track their child's academic progress using the PARENT PORTAL, to ensure the participation of all students in band activities.

The PARENT PORTAL is at:  https://teams.episd.org/selfserve/EntryPointHomeAction.do?parent=true.  Once in the site, click on 'Notifications' and set when you want system-originated messages about your child's attendance, daily assignment grades, as well as current grading cycle averages. This action will help you identify possible problems by receiving notifications if your child's grades drop below the average you choose.
