Our Butter Braid fundraiser is under way!
These tasty Butter Braid Pastries are $12 each, with about $5 of that going to the student's account. Order forms are available in the Band Room, or online. Money and orders are due to Mr. DuPlessis by April 17, 2017, and the frozen braids will be delivered May 2nd. Checks should be made out to "CDS Band Boosters."
There are twelve volunteer Student Leadership Team positions available for exceptional students entering 11th and 12th grade. These students will perform with the bands, assist the staff, mentor younger/less experienced players and receive 6 hours of leadership training. There is no cost for the Student Leadership Team members. Interested students should apply by March 31st at the MEF website.
Acceptance to the camp, and to the Student Leadership Team, will be based on experience, teacher evaluation, and the number of positions available for each instrument. It is highly recommended that students apply by March 31st. The brief teacher evaluation form should be completed online at MEF.
The camp tuition is $200, or $175 if paid by April 10th. We do have financial aid available and many students will be able to attend MEF/ASU Band Camp at a reduced cost or no cost.
