Tuesday May 15- 2nd installment of the California trip is due today.  Although we received quite a few over the past few days, please mail checks made payable to “Shaw-Mi-No”  to the address listed below.  Or you can pay online at www.smnorthbands.org and click “Group Member Payments”

Mattress sale fundraising closure-

We had one of the biggest mattress sale Shawnee Mission schools has ever had, with over 70 mattress sold in one day!  Profits totaling $11,200 with credits directed to student accounts for the trip are being made.  FYI- Ms. West (booster treasurer) is just getting the breakdown of student profits today, so please allow her a week or so to input everything into Charms.  If you’re waiting on mattress sale credits to pay the 2nd installment, please make the 2nd installment within a week…I hope that makes sense.  Again, student account receipts can be found at www.charmsoffice.com using the login procedure used on the initial email about California.


Wednesday, May 16- Graduation Band

All 9th-11th grade students (except block II and VII percussionists) report time of 6:15PM in the North band room.  Casual formal attire required, as we will be on TV.  No specific color coordination of clothing.  Parents, this is not a band concert, so please drop students off, and the ceremony should be over before 9:00PM.  Students can bring study materials, as we’re so close to finals.  In the off chance of inclement weather tomorrow evening, please check for a text stating we’re in the field house.  In that case, block VII students would be asked to stay home due to limited spacing in the field house.  If you don’t hear anything, plan on block I, II and VII students playing outside.


Saturday, May 19- Varsity marching rehearsal from 9AM-2PM on the stadium field.  No instruments needed.  There is a 30% chance of rain, but please plan on reporting for our 9AM start time, even if it’s raining.  Stay tuned via text or band website for updates.  We will feed all varsity marchers around 11:30AM.


Monday, May 21- Indoor marching band rehearsal/summer rental for 2018 JV and varsity marchers.  Please bring instruments.  All student staff (section leaders/seniors) report no later than 5:30PM in the band room.  8th graders will begin reporting around 5:45PM to eat Papa Johns for dinner with student staff.  EVERYONE please report no later than 6:30PM in the band parking lot (having already eaten dinner).  We will have a short marching session in the parking lot, followed by section meetings, then everyone will play through some pep-band tunes in the band room.  The rehearsal will end at 7:30PM, followed by finalizing summer rentals.  If you’re renting an instrument over the summer (drum, sax, marching brass, etc.) please bring a check for $30.00 MADE OUT TO SMSD (not Shaw-Mi-No).


That will wrap up all band activities for the 2017-18 school year!
