Uniform Turn-in was a Huge Success!!

 

From Joanie Nicholas:

Way to go Students—99% of you turned in your uniforms at the Chili Supper! This makes my job so much easier and I am so thankful for your cooperation. There are a few random shakos and gauntlets still floating around out there, however. Please double check your lockers, trunks, back seats, under your bed, etc. and put any of those stray items you find on the desk in the band room closet.

We had a great team of parent volunteers that helped the process go smoothly. I am super appreciative to these folks for their help:

Laura Cooper

Michelle Lovell

1. Chili Supper - Bring your favorite chili or soup for the dinner this evening before the winter concert.  5:30 pm in the SMS cafeteria.


2. Raiders Helping Raiders -Tonight we will "pass the shako" to collect money for a wonderful program at SMS. Raiders Helping Raiders collects money to assist SMS families during the holidays. Last year, the counseling department helped direct funds to 50 Raider families. Please give what you can this evening when the shako comes your way. If you would like to write a check, please make it out to SMS Band Boosters. We then write one big check from our Band Family.
3. Uniform turn in - Please make sure to bring marching uniforms this evening for turn in. Volunteers to help collect are always welcome. Uniforms will be collected in the band room starting at 4:45 pm this afternoon.
4. Symphonic Band Ladies - If you need to order a dress, either because you are a new member to Sym Band or need a different size, please remember to bring your order form and a check tonite. We need to get the order in so we have them back by Masterworks Concert in January. Christie Ross will be collecting orders tonight.

Thanks to those of you who have signed up to volunteer!   We have a lot of volunteer spots open for our race this Saturday, November 5th.  Please choose a spot by Thursday night so that we have a list of contacts.  There are many moving parts and it is easier to move everyone if we know who they are prior to Friday. :)

Remember, most of these positions can be filled by the STUDENTS, so please encourage your STUDENT to work (especially for race set-up/packet pickup).

We adore our parent volunteers, but we would love to have our STUDENTS signing up and working to raise money for themselves! You can forward them the link once you have signed them up if that is easier for you. ;)

Please go to the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4caaaa28a64-rompin

Hello Rompin' Stompin' Raiders,

 

This week is Homecoming and we could use some more help with Plumes during pre-game. For pre-game, you'll need to be at SMS no later than 6:00. We need Plumes in by 6:15 or earlier, as the band is playing at 6:15 for the KidFest. Half-time is normal.
.
Next, we REALLY need help on Monday evening, October 3rd. It is the district band festival and we want to be the best dressed. Plumes in between 6:00 - 6:30...like a 'normal' football game.
.
Please go to the sign up to support the band at these upcoming events.

Thanks,
SMS Band Boosters

BAND UNIFORM PANT LENGTH

There has been much confusion regarding what “proper length for the uniform pants” means; in fact, I misspoke at the Booster Club meeting last night. I have received the official word from Mr. Adams regarding this. The end of the pant leg should just touch the top of the shoe, with one “break” (fold, indentation) in the leg just above the shoe. There should be no bunching of the leg and the pants should not reach the rubber part of the shoe. (Check out the little video that runs when you open http://fruhauf.com/. Unfortunately, the heads of the audience often block the bottom of the pant but I think you will get the idea.

Parents, PLEASE have your student try on his/her bibs before this week’s game so you can adjust the length of the pants as needed. There are snaps inside the legs to make adjustments easy. If the pants need to be even shorter than the snaps allow, tighten the suspenders on the bibs. If they are still too long, pin the hem at the length needed and get your student to the band room at 5:00 pm on Friday so we can help get the adjustments made. The uniform crew will be in the band room Friday at 5:00 pm to settle any issues and press new seams in place for any pants that have been adjusted. Pant length is part of the whole look that is judged at marching festivals, so it is imperative that we get the proper adjustments made.

BAND UNIFORM CARE


Number One Rule DO NOT CLEAN THESE UNIFORMS IN ANY WAY DURING THE SEASON!

That makes it easy, right? The only uniform item that can be washed in your machine at home is the pair of gloves.
At the end of the season the Band Boosters will dry clean all the uniforms. Students should spot-clean and buff their shoes regularly/as needed to remove dust and dirt.
Number Two Rule — HANG THE UNIFORM CAREFULLY ON THE HANGER PROVIDED IMMEDIATELY AFTER EACH WEARING! Fold the bibs so the creases line up and smooth the pants over the hanger; zip the jacket so it hangs nicely; velcro gauntlets together and place in the shako box with gloves.
Should there be in stains/damage/concerns with any portion of the uniform during the season, please contact Mr. Adams or Joanie Nicholas (getorganized2010@att.net) as soon as possible.
We are on “year 2” of hopefully 12 years of use for these uniforms so we need to take especially good care of them. Thank you so much for your help and cooperation!

In case you missed this message from Mr. Adams....

From our uniform committee chairs:

 

IMPORTANT UNIFORM INFORMATION—PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY!!!

Have your student try on his/her uniform tonight or tomorrow night. The jacket sleeves and pant legs have buttons inside to adjust the length. If the pant legs are still too long, they NEED TO BRING THEIR PANTS TO SCHOOL NO LATER THAN THIS FRIDAY, safety-pinned at the proper length!! We have someone who will tack up the legs for us and the Band Boosters will cover the cost, but we need to get them to her in plenty of time to get this done before our first game next week.

If adjustments are made to the length they need to pressed in with an iron so the uniform looks crisp and fresh. If this cannot be done at home, the student NEEDS TO BE AT THE BAND POTLUCK ON SEPT 2 NO LATER THAN 4:30!!We have a press and can crease the uniforms nicely, but need time to get it done before pre-game.

Students should always wear a t-shirt and shorts under their uniform. Next week we will send out uniform care information. Primarily though, DO NOT wash or dry clean the uniform during the season. We will take care of getting them all dry cleaned at the end of the season.

Questions???
