MARCHING BAND AND COLORGUARD HANDBOOKS - 2019-2020 

 

NOTE ABOUT HOSPITALITY NEEDS......

July 25, 2019


Welcome or Welcome Back Band Parents!


Hospitality is an integral element of the SHS band program year-round.
We ensure water and snacks are available for our students during each football game, parade, and field trip, provide lunch before Marching MPA and Lion’s Pride competition, and operate Concessions during concerts for our Sickles performances and other events held in our auditorium. It’s a big job, but if everyone can help in some small way, we can have a successful year in Hospitality!


Please take a moment to review the lists below. You will notice we have needed supplies, items on our wish list, and some ideas of future food needs. If you are interested in donating items from our supply or wish lists, please drop them off in the band room Attn: Jen Lingo. If you know restaurants or businesses who would support the band via supplies and/or donations, please let us know!


We will email all volunteer/food needs through Charms as events occur. If you are interested in volunteering in Hospitality or have any questions, please email Jen Lingo, 2019-2020
Band Hospitality Chair, at jenlingo77@gmail.com.


Thank you in advance for your support of Hospitality and our amazing student musicians in the Sickles HS Wall of Sound!
