Booster and NY Trip Meeting on Tuesday, Feb 3

Dear Parents and Students,

On Tuesday, February 3rd, we will have a mandatory meeting concerning the New York Trip in the band room at 7:00 pm. The reason for this meeting is to specify important dates to you that will be coming up soon as well as information pertaining to how the tour company has set this up and the contract that we will fall under.  Rather than emailing this information out, I felt this would give everyone the opportunity to hear the same information at the same time.  This time would also allow for any questions to be answered.  I will also need to collect information from all the participants so that you would be the only people that receive the emails and Remind 101 messages.

We will also have a very brief Band Booster meeting at the beginning to announce the Booster Board Nominating Committee as well as profits made from recent fundraisers.

Sincerely,

Jeff Norman
Director of Bands
Greer High School
