ISSMA Prelims FAMILY DINNER
No meal tickets for THURSDAY (Oct.6) this week! Why?? It's ISSMA Prelims Family Dinner.
How it works: Families BRING dinner for themselves (or pair up with others) during the BOP dinner hour (6-7 p.m.). Pizza, homemade lasagna, fast food -- it's whatever you want!
Find a table in the cafeteria and decorate it with style -- go all out (or not!). This is a fun time to send the BOP off to ISSMA Prelims!
DECORATE A POSTER FOR YOUR BOP-ER
After the ISSMA Prelims Family Dinner, please stick around and make a spirit poster (or two) for your BOP member ! All parents, family members and others are encouraged to drop by and spread some Prelims Spirit. If you have supplies to share, please do! Hang your poster in the music hallway, or we can do it for you!
STICK AROUND AND WATCH THE PREVIEW
Just like every Thursday, at 8:15 you can be treated to the BOP's final run-through on the blacktop. The kids LOVES being pumped up and cheered on, especially for their Prelims run-through. After you're finished making posters, stick around to watch and cheer them on!

FUNDRAISING NEWSFLASH 9/18
Big Huge Thank you to all who helped set up the booth on Friday, slopped/scooped coleslaw, and cleaned chicken or helped in any other way!! This is an all-hands-on-deck event, and you did not disappoint! It's a really fun/exhausting weekend but totally worth it.
Nelson's "Homecoming" Chicken
I know the thought of chicken is a bit daunting to those who cleaned the 2500lbs of it Friday night, but trust me, come Homecoming Night, you will wish you had some delicious Nelson's chicken to eat instead of the concessions stand hotdogs. We ordered a fairly small quantity, so presales is the only way to ensure you get yours. Price is $6.50/chicken half (will be $7/ea for walk-up sales). Get your tickets anytime from Mom Pape or anytime you see the little orange table. Order forms are above the orange mailbox for those taking outside orders. You get $2/ticket for your band account. Chicken will be ready for pickup by 5pm Friday 9/23, in time for BOP dinner break, and will be kept warm until about 7:30.
Product pick-up is Tuesday 9/20 from 4:30 - 6:30pm. PRODUCT MUST BE PICKED UP DURING THIS TIME. These are frozen goods & there is no place to store them for you. Contact Amanda Crist if there is no way you can possibly work this out. Email address is: email@example.com
Fundraiser packets went home Friday after practice. More are available in band room or from Amanda Crist. It runs from now thru Friday 9/30. Orders & money MUST be turned in by then due to company deadline, no extensions will be made. Only Donuts, Pies, and Crunch Candy are being sold (not cookies in the brochure).
Email Bev Pape @ Mommapape@frontier.com if you have questions about any of the above.
