FUNDRAISER UPDATE
SPECIAL THANKS to the students that already sold their 10 or even their 20 cards!! Many have already achieved this goal - please find some time to make it a goal for yourself as well. We are asking each student to sell 10 cards, if you can sell 20 by September 14th (field trip performance incentive) that would make this a GREAT fundraiser for us. If everyone does their part and supports the band to that level - we will have an amazing opportunity to continue to enhance the Cambridge Band Program!!

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13
The Wind Symphony, Orchestra, and Chorus will present a Premiere Concert on September 13th at 7pm. This is a free concert and a tradition at Cambridge to open our concert season. All band students receive extra credit for attending if they are not in Wind Symphony. Hope you will join us for the concert - no marching band practice that afternoon.

CONTINUE TO COMMUNICATE
As an additional reminder - we have created a google form for the notification of absences. We know we are missing a few students this weekend due to the calendar change. Please use the following form for all absences moving forward: Absence Notification Form

FLORIDA TRAVEL REMINDER
The due date for payment was last Friday!! If you still owe, please make arrangements and communicate any concerns. Thanks for your prompt attention!!

VOLUNTEERS
In the football season, we have an immense need for parent volunteers. Please take a sincere look at the SignUpGenius (linked on website, and frequent emails) and consider when and how YOU can help the band be successful this season. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU THAT ARE ALREADY INVOLVED - YOU MAKE THINGS SO MUCH EASIER!

BIG VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY ON THE HORIZON
We are just over two weeks away from the Fulton County Exhibition - hosted at Cambridge!! There is a job for EVERYONE that day - plan to spend some time with your band family - thanks for all your help making this program work!!
