CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ENTIRE BAND ON A WONDERFUL CONTEST SEASON!!! Special congrats to the Guard and Drumline for their recognition as BEST IN CLASS at the Sprayberry Competition!! We couldn’t make these opportunities happen without all of the amazing volunteers that make the Cambridge Bands work - so if you have ever served a meal, helped with a uniform, moved equipment, chaperoned a trip, been one of our heroic nurses, assembled a prop, built some needed equipment, WE THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!

Greetings Band Parents,

This year, the Cambridge Performing Arts department is hosting a Halloween social ("Boo Bash") for all members in band, chorus, orchestra/guitar, and theater! It will be Tuesday, October 30th from 4:30-7:30 at the North Park Pavilion. Pizza and drinks will be provided, and we are asking each student attendee to donate one bag of chips/pretzels or one package of cookies/brownies to share.

There will be a costume contest with prizes in several categories! Students wishing to dress up should be conscious of their attire and wear appropriate costumes. There will also be games, music, and a TRUNK-OR-TREAT!!

We need some parent assistance with the TRUNK-OR-TREAT - we need 3 volunteers who are able to attend the event and distribute candy, and we need donations of fun-sized candy. If you are able to help, please use this sign-up genius link:
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080D4AA5A929A4FF2-boobash

Your students have been sent a link to RSVP if they are attending - RSVPs are due by Wednesday so we can have an accurate headcount for pizza!

We are looking forward to providing this social opportunity for our students to bond, make new friends, celebrate accomplishments, and have a little FUN!

Thank you, Mrs. Groves & Mr. Borger

Good Afternoon,
This Friday is our last home game and it's also Senior Night. This is a time to celebrate our seniors and give their parents a break from volunteering, so they can just enjoy the night. With that said we need help with equipment, concessions and football programs.


Please see the sign ups below.
Equipment: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4DAAAB2EA6F85-chsfootball
Concessions: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4DAAAB2EA6F85-concession
Football Programs: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4DAAAB2EA6F85-sell


Additionally, Saturday is our last competition at Sprayberry High School. We still need help with this as well. Please note if you sign up for equipment you do not have to ride the bus (although you are welcome to) but you do need to be at the high school to help unload and then to help us on/off the field. You can review this sign up below.
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0C4DAAAD29A7FC1-stpius

Thank you all for being so willing to jump in and help wherever needed. We could not successfully participate and attend all games and events without each parents' help … so again, thank you!

Welcome to the Blue Sheet - our weekly announcements for Marching Band!!

Once again . . . CONGRATULATIONS. . . and THANK YOU!!! - Traveling with such a large group of students always comes with its challenges - but the students of the Cambridge Band had a great trip to Florida without incident and were a terrific group of young men and women the entire trip.

FLORIDA PACKING LIST

I will also attach the list below as a PDF to this email if it’s easier to print as a checklist for your packing assistance:

  • Instrument and Accessories
  • Marching Shoes/Black Socks
  • Under Uniform (white shirt and shorts)
  • Cambridge shirt for bus ride on Friday (anything Cambridge is fine, our show shirt is great)
  • Personal Hygiene Items (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, others as needed) Sleepwear
  • “Bus Bag” (include any snacks, homework, games or movies, cell charger, water). Above “bus bag” can double as a show bag on Saturday and a beach bag on Sunday
  • Saturday “bus bag” should have musical items, sunscreen, water bottle, etc.
  • Beachwear for Sunday
  • Sunday “bus bag” should include change of clothes for bus ride, and all other bus items from Friday
  • Pack other clothes lightly as we won’t have much room in the bus bays after loading our uniforms and hat boxes.
  • Under-uniform and uniform will be all that is needed for Saturday - it’s all about the show that day
  • Sunscreen and bug spray will be good to add to the “bus bag” for Saturday and Sunday
  • Pillow for bus is a plus - so is a sweatshirt/jacket
  • Ryan Borger & Katie Groves

And now - the reason you are glad you read all the way to the end. Next weekend we are at the Creekview Marching Competition. Our performance time is 3:40 PM - it is a large show that starts at 12:30 and ends with awards at 9:30. Students/Parents can expect we will rehearse for a couple of hours around 10AM. We will feed the students lunch here at Cambridge before we go to Creekview - but dinner at Creekview will be the students responsibility. This will be a long Saturday - but a good first true contest weekend to see a lot of bands and have a great time at our first scored contest.

Dear Parents & Students,

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are postponing our Coupon Card Fundraiser Blitz Day. We are looking at Sunday, 9/30, in the afternoon from 1-4. Parents, we will need 10 or so drivers to take our student volunteers out into neighborhoods in the community. Please sign up by clickinghere.

We are currently running about $5000 under our budgeted gross sales. Since this fundraiser does contribute a significant amount to our operating budget, we need to try and make up as much of the deficit as possible. Thanks for your support past & future in helping us maintain a high quality band program. We really can't do it without you all!

Yours,

Sue Lawton
Cambridge Band Booster Club President

Hello,

The FCE is upon us!!! We are the host of the Fulton County Exhibition. Bands will be performing from all parts of Fulton County. That is 14 bands and nearly 1500 band students.

We need your help by signing up to volunteer to work the exhibition on Sept. 22rd. There is a time slot that works for everyone. You can volunteer in parking, visitor band guide, chaperone for CHS band, concessions, and more. You just need to click the link below, and see all the opportunities to help out.

http://www.cambridgeband.org/parents-and-students/volunteer

or

Fulton County Exhibition - Saturday Sep. 23

There are 40+ volunteer slots to fill and only a few have been filled to date. We are asking for band parents, older siblings, CHS band alumni, and family friends to consider volunteering. CHS non-marching band students are asked to signup. Spread the word. This is a fun event. There is no special knowledge needed. All volunteers will be briefed once checked in on how to do their assigned job. That is it!! Students that need service hours are welcome.

Did I mention that hardly anyone has signed up!!

This is the time to sign up, especially if you have not volunteered yet this year. CHS Band cannot successfully host this event without you.

Mr. Borger has described this event at the band booster's meeting on Sept. 11. He describes this event as a great opportunity to be the best host of all Fulton County HS marching bands.

Again, I state that we really need someone from each family to sign up to volunteer. We can not do this without your help.

Sign up today, please. Contact me if you have questions or concerns.

I look forward to volunteering alongside you Sept. 22rd!!!

Thank you,

Elaine Welch, FCE Volunteer Coordinator

Hello Cambridge Band Alumni!

I hope this email finds you all doing well!

We are hosting Fulton County Marching Band Exhibition at Cambridge again this year, and we need your help!! It will be on Saturday, September 22, and there are opportunities to volunteer at any time of day and in a variety of capacities. This takes a VILLAGE of volunteers to execute, so please consider spending some time with your old band family that day! (Our alumni email list only goes two years back, so if you know someone who graduated prior to 2017 please pass this along to them.)

Please use this link to sign-up to volunteer: https://goo.gl/forms/Z57FcIwelmwisDoo2

If you have any questions you can email me (grovesk@fultonschools.org) or Ms. Welch, our FCMBE coordinator (ewelchmail@gmail.com).

Thank you!
Mrs. Groves
Cambridge Bands

Good Evening Cambridge Band Family,

Thank you to those who could come to the booster meeting tonight, it's so great to see everyone. We talked a lot about the many opportunities coming up to volunteer. It's an exciting time for the band right now. Please review the below sign ups to find your opportunity to help.

Friday Night Concessions: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4DAAAB2EA6F85-concession
It's 8th grade night this Friday, so we will have extra students which means we need a fully staffed concession stand.

Football Programs: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4DAAAB2EA6F85-sell
They're here! We are so excited to share these with all athletics.

Fulton County Exhibition: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0C4DAAAD29A7FC1-fulton
This requires just about everybody in band to volunteer to make this a success. Did I mention that this is an awesome night?!?

Coupon Blitz Day: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4DAAAB2EA6F85-coupon
Our coupon sales are not quite where they need to be. We need a few drivers on Saturday to take our students around for the final push to sell the cards we need in order to meet our budget.

Like I said, lots of awesome opportunities. We look forward to seeing you!

Go Bears!!

Thank you,
