Upcoming Events and Activities

I wanted to take a moment and invite you all to our Spring Jazz Concert this Monday (4/28) at Central Baptist Church on Outer Drive here in Sioux City. Both Jazz 1 and 2 will be performing and we will have guest artist Mike Hilson who is the guitar professor from University of South Dakota(We won’t hold that against him). The cost of the event is $5 and includes dessert/drink/JAZZ! The Jazz bands have had a great season with high marks at every festival in the area.

On Thursday (5/1) at 7PM the North Middle School will be holding their Spring concert featuring their 6-7-8th grade bands as well as some of their top ensembles from their solo/ensemble contest earlier this week.

On Friday (5/2) at 7PM the North High School will be holding their Spring concert featuring their Concert Band and Symphonic Winds as well as some of their top solo and ensembles from their solo/ensemble contest earlier this month. The concert will also have their end of the year awards ceremony. This should be a great end to what was such a great year.

Jolly Time popcorn fundraiser – If you are a popcorn lover please see one of the high school band and color guard members about purchasing a case of Jolly Time popcorn from them. Each case contains 24 packages and is selling for $15. This is significantly lower than you can purchase from the store and nearly 50% goes into the North High band account. Every little bit helps! Orders are due May 6th. Delivery will be May 12th.

Joined Recycle Rewards

We have signed up with Recycle Rewards as a fundraising source.  The program pays us to send them used toner, ink cartridges, cell phones and even some small electronics.  The list of acceptable items is included in a link below. 

If you have any recyclable items have your band student drop them off at the band room.  We have a special box setup just for recyle items.  It’s a great way to help us raise funds and help our environment.

Spread the word too, anyone can drop off recycle items.

Buffalo Wild Wings – Eat Wings / Raise Funds

We have teamed up with Buffalo Wild Wings to raise some funds for band.  We need you to spread the word and ask family and friends to dine at our Sioux City Buffalo Wild Wings and present one of the fund raiser tickets below that you can download and print.  North High Band will get money for every sale that comes in on the specified date and presents a ticket.  Anyone can do it so pass them around, link this post on facebook, tell your friends and family – it’s simple to do and the food is great!

Event 1: Wednesday, Nov 28th

Event 2: Wednesday, Dec 5th

Event 3: Wednesday, Dec 12th

Event 4: Wednesday, Dec 19th

Start Saving Hy-Vee Receipts

August is the month that you can start saving those Hy-Vee Receipts to help earn cash for band.  It’s so easy to do, just collect your receipts for this month and when the next month rolls around add up all your receipt totals, bundle them up and bring them by when you come to the Band Parent Meeting or have your student drop them off to Mr. Massey. 

The only way it could be easier would be if little elves stopped by in the middle of the night and added the receipt totals for you, but that would be kinda creepy!

Great Car Wash!

A big “Thank You” to Hy-Vee, our fabulous Siouxland community, and all you super band parents and students who pitched in to make our 2012 car wash a big success!  We raised funds towards our new band uniforms and got a nice tan to boot.  See ya next year …
