Field Trip Form (UPDATED!)

An electronic version of the Field Trip/Overnight Trip Form is now available on the Forms page.  This was given out by Mr. Janes at the Band Booster meeting, and needs to be returned no later than Friday, 7/29. Kids can bring them to band camp and put them in the purple “Forms” box by the band office.

You do not need to fill in specific dates or locations on this form. You can simply put 8/2016- 6/2017 for the dates and “Any” for the location. That way the form will work for any trip that the kids take with band/guard.

UPDATE:  Oops!  It looks like we originally received and posted an old version of the form.  I have updated the link to point to the correct version, which is dated August 2015 and contains 5 printed pages – three of which need to be signed and returned.  Please download and fill out the new form, which is linked above.

July FHNBB Meeting Minutes

The minutes from the July Band Boosters meeting are available here:  July Minutes.  Please review them and alert the secretary of any errors or other questions at secretary@fhnbands.com.  The minutes will be presented for approval at the August meeting.

New Band Event – FHSD Kickoff – August 3

It is Knightpride’s turn this year to perform at the FHSD Kickoff event on the morning of August 3rd.  I have updated the 2016 Important Dates document and added the event to the FHNBB Parents Calendar.  You might want to redownload and print off the new version of the important dates file.
