FORMAL WEAR FOR THE BAND CONCERT ON DEC. 10
Almost all Band students have been fitted for either a tuxedo or concert dress for our Winter Concert on Dec. 10th. Fittings will continue in band classes this week. This is also the uniform we will wear for the UIL Contest in April. These items stay at school just like the marching uniform. If your child will be wearing a tuxedo as their concert wear uniform, you will need to provide a white, button down long sleeve shirt to wear under the jacket. We do not have those to issue out to students. Here are some examples of what is acceptable. Please acquire this shirt prior to the Dec. 10th Concert.
Tux Shirt (Amazon) - https://www.amazon.com/Neil-Allyn-Tuxedo-Cotton-Collar/dp/B00BEJ6IW0/ref=sr_1_7?crid=4C6TFKA08WIO&keywords=tux+shirts+for+men&qid=1638116283&sprefix=tux+shirt%2Caps%2C201&sr=8-7
Long sleeve, button down white shirt (Target) -
Students in tuxedos will also need to provide long black socks and nice black dress shoes.
Students who will wear the Concert Dress should wear closed-toed black low heel shoes. If the student wishes to wear something in the hair (box, headband, etc.), please ensure it is black and/or not distracting from the overall professional concert look. Questions - please ask a director! Thank you!

The event will begin after the concert and will conclude at 10pm. Students may invite one guest who is not an M100 member to attend the event with them.

COLORGUARD BAKE SALE (from Mr. Hudnall)
We are less than a week away from our first bake sale. Please fill out the google form for whatever items you are able to bake and donate for the bake sale. We have had a limited amount of responses and we need more people to put on their baking aprons!
Varsity and JV members will be reminded in class and rehearsals about the bake sale. These funds will help fund special events held for the guard, equipment, props, and even trips that we could potentially take this school year. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Sign up and help us raise funds for our program. You do not need to make a HUGE amount of baked goods. Looking at the google form you will see items that you are able to select to bake and bring in with dates as well.
Thank you for taking the time to look over this email and over the google form! Can't wait to see how much we can raise for our second bake sale season!!
