Help Needed to Promote Fundraiser Benefiting your programs

Hi Paul, Chris and Mike,

It’s been great working with all of you this school season. Please help us promote one last fundraising event for this school year. I would appreciate it if you can send out an invitation to this event to your parents tomorrow or early next week. So far only 10 people have confirmed they will attend.  Thank you for all you do in enriching our children and sharing your love of music.

Please remind them to RSVP by sending an email to auniqueartgallery@comcast.net or calling 561-529-2748 so A Unique Art Gallery can plan for the wine and cheese reception.  As you know, we have very few expenses as we volunteer all of our time so most of the funds raised this evening for JPAF go to your programs and students.

Best Regards,

Sheril

Private Teachers

A note from Mr Paul Destito, JMS Band Director…

Parents and friends,

Most tutors will start lessons on June 10th.  Now is the time to call.  We ALL fill up very quickly.  I have attached the list of local tutors who have worked with our students and others in the past.  There are other tutors to be sure.  If your kid is in love, fan the flame.  Most will work around vacations, camps and jobs.  Nothing pays greater dividends that a little one on one with a master!

Our private teachers are the back bone of our success here at Jupiter Middle and have been for nearly 50 years.

Call now and make it happen.  Feel free to email me or call my cell with questions.

The discussion of the decade between me and an outstanding math teacher:
MT- If all my students had private math tutors my FCAT scores would go through the roof!
MD- Have you ever considered promoting private summer math tutoring to your students parents, especially your most gifted students to help your FCAT scores?
MT- blink..blink ….blink…..

I believe that if your kid is a spark, you should throw gas on em to make a raging fire.

I have seen some of the folks on this list work miracles with our young people.  Get on it today

If you spot a mistake on the list, let me know.  I will correct and resend.

To all Warrior Band parents and students,

First I would like to say thank you to all of you for the gift at the last concert.  I really appreciate the thought and the kindness.  The truth is, I should be thanking all of YOU.  All of you have made this past year a very memorable one.  I can’t thank you all enough for being a part of the Warrior Band family.  You have all come such a long way this year both parents and students.  We have been through a lot together and we have accomplished so many things.  I hope that all of you can take something away from your experience with the Warrior Band program.

Last week’s concert was outstanding.  I can’t say enough of how proud I am of everyone.  Much preparation went into the concert and I can say that great music was made.  Music making is something that you should all hold onto for the rest of your lives, not matter how old you are.  Music can be listened to and appreciated by everyone.  It is a universal language and it is a tool for some people to express their feelings and use as a vehicle of communication in place of talking.  James Jordan, the author of The Musician’s Soul said:

“How would one describe that inner place?  That place is spacious in feeling and calm. It is a place where the day-to-day issues of life are kept in perspective.  It is the place where one’s inner voice speaks and can be heard.  That inner place is the place where trust in self resides.  It is also the place where profound human love and care are always in residence.  It becomes the place from which one creates all music.”

Every one of you has a dream and has purpose in life.  I hope that what you learn in the Warrior Band family you can take away with you for the rest of your life into the real world.  I hope you can take the skills and values you have learned with you to follow your dreams.  Never give up on your dreams and always go after them.  You are all so important and each one of you matter.  Remember the bonds and the friends that you make here and keep them with you forever.  You will soon leave here and go your separate ways but always remember where you came from.  Hold on to your dreams and hold on to each other.

Morning — by Vox One

Aurora breaks with passion and glory
To harken the sound of sunrise,
The opening eyes of everyday morning
And the rose white blush of the sun.
As I hold you near in silence,
I drift between my dreams and the dawn.

A whirlwind of emotion
takes me tumbling into dreams of you
Lost inside darkness all around me.
Then soft, like the sun,
which sparkles with beauty,
You take all the shadows away.
As I hold you near in silence
You are the joy of morning to me.

In the stillness…
In the first light of dawn I see.
No more shadows, only light cradles me.
I am strong again.

A soul that once was hungry for beauty
Now rejoices with you in the morning.
It’s love so strong that makes me wonder
Would my heart still beat on its own?
As I hold you near in silence
How precious is the time that we share together

Hold on…hold on to your dreams.
Hold on…hold on to what morning brings.

In the stillness…
In the first light of dawn I see.
No more shadows,
Where only light carries me on.
I am strong again, but I’ll need you when
Morning’s gone again…
Hold on…to morning.

GL SCRIP GIFT CARDS

We are placing our final GL Scrip Gift Card Order of the year.  Orders are due in the GL Scrip Gift Card box at the end of the school day Wednesday, April 24th (2:30 PM).

If you are not familiar with this fundraiser, gift cards from a wide variety of stores are available for purchase in bulk.  You (or your customers) pay face value for the cards, and a portion of the value goes towards your student’s Fair Share!  The percentage profit depends on the store as listed on the GL Scrip web site. Check out the many gift cards and special offers available at www.glscrip.com.  If you or anyone you know gives gift cards, consider purchasing them through GL Scrips to help your Fair Share!

This is a great time to by end of the year gifts for teachers!  New lower price gift cards are available for a limited time from Barnes & Noble ($5) Target ($10), Walmart ($10) and Panera Bread ($5).  An extra 1% contribution is available for Home Depot and Landry’s restaurant (includes Bubba Gump’s) gift cards.  For other deals, click on the What’s New tab on the GL Scrip home page.

To: Roger Dean Spring Break Concession Volunteers
From: Bonnie Welsh

Dear Volunteers:

Thanks to all who participated in our 2nd annual Roger Dean Spring Break Concession Duty.  Everyone who signed up showed up at their designated shift.  We worked hard, and we were considerate of our customers.  We learned a little about each other, but mostly, we are getting paid 12% (net) of everything we sold at the stands.  Better yet, our students participated in raising their own “fair share” funds.

I am in the process of getting the totals from Roger Dean Stadium and calculating it into an hourly rate.  From there I allocate it to the number of hours/shifts we worked.  We are dividing it the same way as last year.  I shall have the totals by our meeting April 17, 2013.  I will forward them along to Rose, our Treasurer, and she will apply it toward the students’ fundraising accounts.

We just received the first check for the night shift worked on March 13, 2013.  Hopefully, we should have the remainder of the funds in the next week as well.

Once again, thank you for giving up your Spring Break “stay cation” and helping with the Roger Dean Spring Break Concession.

Spirit Uniform Return – FINAL DAY

Now that the Middle School Recruiting event is done, the FINAL uniform turn in date has been scheduled.  Turn in your COMPLETE and CLEAN uniform (jacket, bibbers, shako and gauntlets) on Wednesday, April 17th from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM.  (Then stay for our Band Booster meeting at 7:00!)

Please do NOT return them during school hours, as Mr. Larkin will not be able to process them.  Uniforms can be turned in only on April 17th.  If you are unavailable that night, make arrangements to have a friend turn in your uniform for you!

Please follow these instructions:

1)    Get jackets dry cleaned and wash the bibbers and gauntlets.
2)   Return all cleaned uniform parts (jacket, bibbers, gauntlets) to the uniform team in the uniform room.

These pieces should be INSIDE the dry cleaning bag WITH the dry cleaning receipt attached.  Please place the dry cleaning bag inside the garment bags labeled with the student’s name.  This will keep the entire clean uniform together, ready for re-distribution over the summer. (If you would like to keep your garment bag at home, please write the student’s name on the dry cleaning receipt attached to the dry cleaning bag.)

3)    Return shakos in boxes.
4)   Wash gloves.  You may leave CLEAN, DRY gloves in the pocket of your garment bag for safe keeping until next season.
5)    Keep marching shoes at home.  Do NOT put in garment bags.

SENIORS should return ALL cleaned jackets, bibbers and gauntlets in dry cleaning bag.  The dry cleaning receipt should be attached AND the student’s name should be written on the receipt.  Seniors may keep their garment bags or donate them to be reused.  They may also donate marching shoes, if they wish.

If ALL parts of your CLEANED marching uniform have not been returned to the uniform team by Wednesday, April 17th, your band account will be charged a late fee of $10.

Please contact Uniform Chairs Linda Cassulo at lcassulo@gmail.com and Sue Badgley-Longchamps at slongchamps@bellsouth.net with any questions.

To the members of the Wind Ensemble,

I hope that this break has found you rested and re-energized to take on the end of the school year.  In an effort to “go out with a bang” please make sure that you are doing your part by practicing every day to prepare your music.  All of us MUST commit to doing everything possible to hold ourselves accountable for our own parts.  PRACTICE!  We have very limited time to pull off a concert of this magnitude but I believe in all of you.

Good luck to those participating in State solo and ensemble on Monday.  I wish you the best of luck.  Make sure to have original scores for the judges and that they are numbered.

Also, for a little inspiration check out a new wind band piece of literature that was premiered last week by one of the most prominent band composers ever, John Mackey.  The piece is called The Frozen Cathedral and it is an unbelievable moving piece of literature.  You can find it on iTunes.  I’m very proud to share this with you because it was premiered by the college that I went to and the ensemble in which I played during my time there.  It was #1 on the classical iTunes chart all last week.  You can read about the piece here http://www.ostimusic.com/Cathedral.php

I’m very excited to make music with you all during this last push of school.  Let’s all do our part to make this the BEST and most unbelievable concert ever.

Best,

Michael Larkin

FINALLY HERE – SPRING BREAK AND ROGER DEAN CONCESSIONS

Dear Spring Break Roger Dean Concession Volunteers:

First, thank you all for taking time out of your spring break to help make this fundraising opportunity a big success.

Attached is the final list for this week’s Concession Duty (removed due to minor information.) Good news – 100% of the money received from Roger Dean Stadium goes to your “fair share.”  Bad news – if you have signed up for a shift and cannot make it (and we cannot find a replacement), Roger Dean charges us $45 for every person they need to replace.  This comes out of our net profit.

Rules:   (Remember – Have Fun, but Be Professional – We are representing Jupiter High School Band)

  1. Please remember to bring your Roger Dean Concession I.D. They will charge us for replacements.
  2. Upon arrival, go through the main gate and head to your left.  We have concession stands 4 and 5.  Look for Michelle Kellogg, Tim Kellogg, and Rose Siebeneck.  They are our group leaders.  If anyone else wants to be a group leader, check in with Michelle.  We may need extra, since we have two (2) stands.
  3. Uniforms – Work shirts will be provided.  Wear black shorts or black pants with tennis shoes.  No purses.  JHS has purchased customized hats.  (Matching hats are required by Roger Dean Stadium)  You can purchase the hat (through fair share) for $7.  Or, if you do not want to buy the hat, you can use it and return it at the end of your shift.  If you are scheduled for multiple shifts, return it at the end of your last shift.
  4. Cell phones cannot be used while working.  If you need to make a call, ask permission and go to the back to the grilling/cooking area or ask for a break and leave the stand.
  5. Sign in sheets will be provided.  Please sign in and out and note the time.  Also, identify if you want to buy your hat or not on the sign-in sheet.  If you are not buying the hat, please let Michelle know and return it back to her directly.
  6. Meals – You will be given $8 in meal tickets which you can use to purchase food/drink.  Check with Shift Supervisor for details.
  7. Inventory and clean up –  At the beginning and end of each shift, an inventory count needs to be complete.  Clean up and wipe down of all counters is required at the beginning and end of the shift.
  8. Tips – We are not allowed to have tip jars on the counter, but if you receive tips, let the group leader know and they will be put aside from the cash drawer.  Remember to thank everyone for supporting the Jupiter High School Band.

Rain – If it rains, we still need to report in for your shift.  The decision to play or not, will be made closer to game time.

Good luck!

Any questions, please feel free to contact Bonnie Welsh at 561-301-5047.

Parents and Students of the Warrior Band Family, 

I want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your tireless efforts at what was a very successful winter guard event this past weekend.  It was such a humbling experience to see what all of you had done.  There was so much that went into this event and it is simply amazing what can be done by coming together for a common goal.  Spirits were great and everyone represented our school and our band family so well.  

I am very proud of all of you and I want to thank everyone that helped by planning, volunteering, and donating.  So many of you went above and beyond to make sure everything was in place.  I also want to be sure that I publicly thank Kate Tierney and Buffie Hill for the months of planning and executing and doing whatever it takes to have a successful event.  The two of them were truly super heroes.  So much went into putting this event on and it could not have been done with out both Kate and Buffie.  They made sure that every “t” was crossed and every “i” was dotted and every little detail was where it needed to be.  They, as well as many other helpers, were at the school Friday night from 6pm-9pm then again on Saturday from 6am-11pm.  

We have received many great comments from judges, staff members, performers, and spectators about how well run the event was and it is thanks to Kate, Buffie and ALL of you.  Thank you for such a great experience.  Experiences like these are what bring us closer together as a family.

Thank you,  
Michael Larkin

New Donors Choose Project! Spread the word!

Hi Friends,

Once again thank you to those who have already helped fund our projects!  Please continue to spread the word.  This is going great!

This school year, I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed. So I’ve created a classroom project request on a 501(c)3 charity website called DonorsChoose.org.

I’m writing to ask for any donations possible for my students – no matter the size, it will help my kids. This week only, any donation you make to my project will be doubled! If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your tax-deductible donation will have a direct impact on at least 150 students (and many more in the future), and you’ll hear back from our class about your impact on our learning!

To learn more or donate:

  • Visit my Teacher Page, www.donorschoose.org/warriorband
  • Choose one of my projects, enter the amount of your donation, and click “Give”
  • During check-out, enter the word INSPIRE where it says “Match or gift code”, and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar.

The INSPIRE match code will double your donation for the next 7 days.

Please feel free to send me any questions you may have, and know that my students and I greatly appreciate your support.

Roger Dean Concessions Update

To all our awesome Roger Dean Concession Volunteers:

First and foremost, the Band Board met and approved a motion to allow Roger Dean Concessions to count 100% toward fair share, (same as last year).

Please review the attached Roger Dean Volunteer Sheet (removed due to minor information), as there have been some changes and updates since the last version.  If you see a yellow slot, this means we are still short a volunteer.  If we do not fill the slots, Roger Dean will fill them with their employees and charge us.  Please help us keep all of our hard-earned money by filling in all of the yellow slots.

Our first concession date is next Wednesday, March 13, 2013.  This is an evening game with a start time at 7:00 p.m.  We need to be at the stadium between 3:00 and 3:45 p.m.  Anyone interested in taking the lead on this night, please let me know.  Also, if you have grilled before, please e-mail me.

Finally, answers to a few questions:

  1. I don’t think there will be a makeup training session, as they have already started Spring-Training.  However, I have requested a “make up” date.  If you would be interested in training, please e-mail me so I can provide a list to Roger Dean. I am going to request an evening or weekend training session.
  2. For those that have students age 15, I am sending the list for approval to Roger Dean.  Normally, they allow two (2) students, but since we have two (2) stands, I am requesting they consider four (4). Two (2) for Dip N Dots and two (2) runners.  I will let you know if they approve our request.  For those with students 14, I am sorry, but the rules are 15 and older.  If their birthday falls around the time of our concession dates, let me know.
  3. I will be picking up the outstanding badges and get them to you, before your first shift.  Please e-mail me to let me know who is still missing their badge.
  4. We have ordered hats that should be available for the first game.  You can return the hat at the end of your shift, or you can purchase the hat for use in in future concession sales or during band camps!  The rest of the uniform, as you know is black shorts/pants and closed toed shoes (preferably tennis shoes).  Roger Dean provides a clean uniform shirt for us to wear each day when you report in.  Remember, no purses or backpacks.
  5. Please remember to sign in and out for each shift.  This is important since the money is divided by hours and shifts.  Check in with Rose Siebeneck for the March 13, 2013 shift and Michelle Kellogg for spring break week.

If your cell phone is not listed, please e-mail me, so I can update the list.

Thank you for participating in this unique fundraiser which allows students the opportunity to pay off their own fair share.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call Bonnie Welsh at 561-301-5047 or e-mail at bfwelsh@hotmail.com.

Roger Dean Concessions – A Few Slots Left

Thank you for signing up for Roger Dean Concessions. This year, we have the honor of running two stands on the same days.  As you can see, we have a few slots left that need to be filled, otherwise, we lose the stand or we get charged for being short-staffed.  Please confirm the dates you are working are correct and let me know if you want to pick up another shift.  Also, review the information (Student Name for Fair Share, Volunteer Name, Cell Phone and Age) on the attached volunteer form (removed due to minor information) for accuracy.  If you have any changes, please let me know.

Finally, if anyone has volunteered but has not gone to training, please contact me.  It is the policy of Roger Dean that everyone attend training each year.  The uniforms this year are black (pants or shorts).  We have ordered hats (which are required to be matching).  Upon your arrival, work shirts will be provided.  Closed toed shoes/tennis shoes are required.  Put all personal items in fanny packs or pockets. No purses or backpacks permitted.

Last year, we were complimented with having the cleanest stands and the most helpful volunteers.  We have a great group of band parents and students.  Roger Dean would not be offering us with the challenges of filling all of these spots, if they didn’t have faith in our abilities and enjoy our positive attitudes.  Lets make this year’s concessions a huge success so we can continue to take advantage of this great opportunity.

Thanking you in advance…

Bonnie Welsh
561-301-5047

P.S.  For those who have not gotten your badges, I am checking with Roger Dean to find out if I can pick them up so we can be sure to have them for everyone’s first shift.

Jupiter Performing Arts Fund is having their quarterly meeting next Saturday, Feb. 23 at 10:30 am. JPAF has done so much for the Jupiter school’s music programs over the past few years but it is an ongoing effort to make sure we succeed.  Please see the attached accomplishment list to see what has been done to make sure the music programs for your children stay thriving and exciting with everything they need to grow.

We are growing fast but need your help. We can not do it alone and hope you will join in our efforts by attending this meeting. It is a great group of men & women with a common goal, keep music in our schools and lets have fun doing it!  Nothing is too much or too hard, we will take any amount of effort you can give us. There are several committees and the more that help, the more that gets done. So we really look forward to you coming to our short meeting, enjoying some food & kicking around new ideas with us.

PLEASE RSVP to president@jpaf.org so we can send you directions to Bari’s home in Jupiter and know how many are coming. We’ll have the coffee & tea on & always wine if you’d like!

Hope many of you can make it, we need your important ideas & input.

Musser M32 Marimba for Rent or Sale

Mallet percussion instruments are expensive and bell kits are annoying!  Because of this known fact, I have started collecting quality mallet percussion instruments for students to rent (or possibly purchase).

Feel free to pass along this flyer to any students that may benefit from having an actual marimba at their home to practice.  I’m sure it won’t be homeless for long!

Roger Dean Concessions – ADDED GAMES!

Good news from Roger Dean – As of YESTERDAY, we received an additional concessions stand for most games and two additional games (Wednesday, March 13th 7:05 PM game and Tuesday, March 26th 1:05 PM game).  We have so many volunteers on some days that they gave us a second concession stand to man.

Bonnie has updated the Roger Dean Concessions Sign Up Sheets (removed due to minor information.) Let her know if the days you’re listed on are correct or if you’d like to add or switch days.  If your name is not on the list but you want to participate, please e-mail Bonnie.  It is NOT TOO LATE to sign up!  Please contact Bonnie with the game(s) you’d like to work and the training session you plan to attend!

(Please note that the “January 3, 00” game on the concession stands sign up sheet should be Monday, March 25, 2013.)

This is awesome!  We can all get a great head start to paying “fair share” before the season begins.

A few people still need to decide on training dates, so please contact Bonnie with the day/time you plan to attend.  Training is next weekend.  If you have any interest in volunteering but are not sure, attend the training, get your ID and then contact Bonnie if you want to commit to a game.

To All Volunteers: Thank you for participating in this year’s Roger Dean Stadium Spring Break Concessions.

To All Band Members, Supporters, Family Members: Support the band by coming out to the ball park and taking in a Spring Training game.  The food is great!  Ask our professional band concessionaires.

Warning: if you sign up as a volunteer, you are part of our mandatory count.  If we do not have the required number of volunteers for a game/concession stand, Roger Dean Stadium will penalize us by charging us for hired workers to help man the stands.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Bonnie Welsh.

Spirit Marching Uniform Return Information

The band uniform team will be on hand to begin the process of collecting marching band uniforms and shakos on Tuesdays, February 5th, 12th and 19th, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  Students and parents should return all borrowed uniform parts during this time. Please do NOT return them during school hours, as Mr. Larkin will not be able to process them.

Please follow these instructions:

1)  Get jackets dry cleaned and wash the bibbers and gauntlets.
2)  Return all cleaned uniform parts (jacket, bibbers, gauntlets) to the uniform team in the uniform room.

These pieces should be INSIDE the dry cleaning bag WITH the dry cleaning receipt attached.  Please place the dry cleaning bag inside the garment bags labeled with the student’s name.  This will keep the entire clean uniform together, ready for re-distribution over the summer. (If you would like to keep your garment bag at home, please write the student’s name on the dry cleaning receipt attached to the dry cleaning bag.)

St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church is planning a fundraising dinner and auction at Benvenuto restaurant in Boynton Beach.  The event will be a Marti Gras theme and is planned for February 1 from 6:00 to 10:00 PM.

The idea is to provide atmosphere and excitement evoking the real Marti Gras by utilizing the talent of a small number of roving musicians informally playing and riffing pieces such as “When the Saints Come Marching In”.

So to recap they need a handful of musicians, for a few of hours after 6:00 on February 1.  Benvenuto is at 1730 N Federal Hwy in Boynton Beach.  Students will receive community service hours.

Dine for Cash night has moved to FRIDAYS in September at Duffy’s West! 
Dine in or take out from 11 am to 12 midnight any Friday in September, and the band receives a donation from Duffy’s equal to 10% of your bill.  Plan on joining other band students and parents after the game this Friday!

You must show the flyer in order for the band to receive this donation.  Duffy’s will honor the August flyer for Friday, September 7th.  The Duffy’s August Flyer is attached and located on the band website on the Forms page.  Mrs. Schulz will also have flyers in the band room after Friday’s football game.

Mixed Bag Designs 
We’ve received some requests for the option of ordering online for the Mixed Bag Designs fundraiser.  Feel free to use the sample email below to send to out of town friends and family.

Ordering instructions are below.  Please make sure your customers use the fundraiser ID and list your child’s name in the “Referred by” field in order to get Fair Share credit!  Keep in mind that customers ordering online must pay tax, shipping and handling.  In addition, the net profit for online orders is only 40%, so the earnings towards a student’s Fair Share is less than ordering through you.

The deadline for orders is Thursday, September 13th.

Please direct all replies/questions about this email to Michelle Kellogg at: seeshellkell@bellsouth.net.

Hello Parents – We are running extremely low on fruit and Gatorade.  Our supply is at the point where we might not be able to serve fruit or Gatorade the rest of the week.

Donations of oranges, strawberries, grapes, and cantaloupe would be greatly appreciated; we don’t need any watermelon or apples.  We also need Gatorade (or Powerade) in individual serving sizes (any flavor).

  • Grapes, strawberries and cantaloupe are on sale at Publix through tomorrow 8/15.
  • Cantaloupe and grapes are on sale at Winn Dixie through today 8/14.
  • When we’re given cash to spend on fruit, we go to Rosetta’s Produce at 601 W. Indiantown Rd. (across from Wendy’s) because it is inexpensive!

Fruit breaks and Gatorade at lunch are provided to help keep all of the kids hydrated on these hot band camp days.  

PLEASE consider sending in fruit or Gatorade (or cash to purchase fruit) with your child tonight or tomorrow morning.
