General Schedule Fall 2010

A general schedule for 2010-2011 has been posted to the files section of Yahoo Groups and will arrive on the website soon.

Band Shoes

Mr. Godfrey will be at the band room on Wednesday, July 21 at 1:00 to measure students who need band shoes. When shoes arrive, a check or cash in the amount of $30.00 is payable to the Moody Band Boosters.

If you need shoes, be sure to try the surplus in the uniform room before ordering a new pair. You might save yourself an expense.

Thank you!

Moody High School Football Program 2010 Ad Sales

It is hard to believe that the 2010-2011 school year and football season is just around the corner. Last year our football and band programs both had very successful years. We are excited and are already anticipating the growth and success of all of our students associated with Moody Schools for the coming year!

We are also eager to introduce the new exciting look of the Moody High School Football Program. This year the program book will have a new feel and will also be in full color including all ads. This will be an opportunity for parents, family, and friends to encourage their students; businesses and organizations to get their name in front of many people, support our school, and invest into our students; and the new color program will be a wonderful souvenir keepsake.

We would like to take this time to invite you to sponsor an advertisement in the NEW Moody High School Football Program.  We have enclosed a form that can be copied to use as an invoice with all information needed.  We can also provide a receipt to you that may be used as a business deduction.

The deadline for program ads is August 6th.  Please mail in your ad as soon as possible with checks made payable to:

Moody Band Boosters
P.O. Box 88
Moody, Alabama 35004

Please include all pictures, logos and sketches (work sheet provided) of ads with completed form before Friday, August 6, 2010. The graphic artist has final design approval on all ads. Camera ready ads can be submitted via disk in Adobe, InDesign, or Illustrator.

We would like to thank you for investing into the lives of students! If you have any questions, need more information, or need to have an ad picked up in person, please contact me at (205) 541-0525 or at radkins@missionbirmingham.org.

Sincerely,
Ronnie Adkins
President
Moody Band Booster Organization
