MPA Make-Up Performance Tomorrow!!! 3/8/12

Dear Moody Band Parent or Guardian:

Our concert band will be performing a make-up performance at state band assessment at 4:40 pm on Thursday, March 8 at the new Hewitt-Trussville High School on Husky Parkway (off of Deerfoot Parkway/I-59). The bus will depart the band room at approximately 1:30. Before returning to Moody, we will stop at Pump-it-Up party center for a pizza party, pending approval by the Moody Band Boosters, and will return to the band room no later than 7:30 pm. We ask that students have rides ready at the band room no later than 7:30 pm. Please send your student to school on Thursday with a snack (granola bar or similar) and perhaps a bottle of water. The pizza dinner will be served around 6:15 pm, which means a long period between lunch and dinner for most students.

Students should be prepared to wear the band uniform, including Under-Armor shorts, band t-shirt, shoes, long black socks, and other required items to the event. Students should bring a change of clothes for wearing after our performance and on the return trip to Moody. Any instrument needs, including reeds, valve oil, mallets, and sticks, should be obtained before the trip.

Please complete and sign the attached Pump-It-Up waiver, found here: http://cdn.pumpitupparty.com/piu_waiver_rev10001.pdf to allow your child to participate in the party. Any student without a completed form will not be allowed to participate. A medical release form is included if you have not completed one already. Return the form to the band room by 8:00 am on Thursday, March 8. If you anticipate a conflict, please don't hesitate to contact me at the number above or via e-mail to brad.sargent@sccboe.org. Thank you for the privilege of sharing the joy of music with your student.

Sincerely,
Dr. Bradley K. Sargent, Band Director
