Our Sale Starts Now until April 5th!

All boxes total $60 each
Each student will be required to sell TWO boxes of chocolate. Each box costs a total of $60.00 for a total of $120 for two boxes. This will benefit all of the band members so we are asking for full participation from everyone in order to make this a success.
Opt-out Fee: Students not wishing to sell may choose to pay an opt-out fee of $60.00, due by the end of the fundraiser, April 5th. Students must participate in the fundraiser, or pay the opt-out fee, in order to participate in their grade level trip.
Turning in Money
The sale will end on April 5th, at which point all the money and any unsold chocolate will be due. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We thank you so much for your support of the Central Middle School Band!

District IV Large Ensemble Festival – 8th Grade Band
Zachary High School
Thursday, March 28, 2019
The festival is an opportunity for the band to perform three prepared pieces and sight-reading in front of a panel of judges to receive assessment and feedback. The highest rating a band can receive from a judge is a “1” or “Superior”. Receiving this rating from the entire panel of judges is called a “Sweepstakes”. The students have been working extremely hard to prepare for this event so we are looking forward to a great field trip. We are seeking chaperones! The bus will be a tight fit so anyone wanting to chaperone will need to drive and follow the bus.
DRESS: Maroon band polo TUCKED IN THE ENTIRE TIME, black pants with belt loops, black belt, black TALL socks, all black shoes (no joggers, leggings, or tall boots)
There is no cost for this field trip, it will be covered by the fundraised monies from the World’s Finest Chocolate fundraiser.
Please indicate on the permission form if you are available to chaperone. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions!
Congratulations to our 7th & 8th Grade Bands on a wonderful Pre-Festival Performance last week! The judges raved about how mature sounding both our bands were! We received great constructive feedback and are excited to go back into rehearsals and continue to perfect our music for the upcoming festivals!
