Directors at TMEA – Wednesday (12th), Thursday (13th), and Friday (14th)
All Band Directors will be gone to the TMEA Convention this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. There will not be any Sectionals or Private Lessons on these days (Mr. Gurke willcommunicate directly with students and parents if there are Percussion Sectionals). The Band Hall will open at its normal time on Wednesday, but it will not be opened until 7:00 AM by Mr. Gurke on Thursday and Friday, so please plan accordingly. Students will play every day in class, so they need to have their instrument and materials. The Band Hall will be closed every day after school, so please plan on picking up your student at their appropriate grade level drop off location. Students will not have access to the Band Hall after school and students are not allowed to get picked up from the Band Hall parking lot when the Band Hall is closed.
Fan Cloth Fundraiser
Fan Cloth is our Spring Fundraiser selling Denison attire. The Entire Fundraiser is ONLINE – Students will not need to turn in an Order Form or collect payment! Students simply need to encourage people to check out their brochure and visit the online store at fancloth.shop/guvbm. Customers must select the name of the student (or if it is the first item being purchased for a student, enter the first and last name) they would like to receive credit when checking out. Students will receive $5 per item sold as credit in their Charms Miscellaneous Ledger at the conclusion of the fundraiser. Profit may be used toward any band expense that is paid through Charms. Profit transfers from one school year to the next and from one campus to the next, within Denison ISD, as long as students are enrolled in the Band Program. Size charts are available on the online store. Products will be delivered after Spring Break to the student they were purchased from, and then it is that student’s responsibility to deliver them to the customer. The fundraiser ends on Tuesday, February 18th. Please go check out the online store and pick out some attire to help support your favorite local band program!
