BAND BOOSTER UPDATE
Please take a few moments to read our Band Booster Update
COOKIE DOUGH - updated 06/02/20
Unfortunately, there has been a delay with the trucking company that was set to deliver the cookie dough. They have assured me that the cookie dough WILL BE HERE on June 9th and available for pick-up from 4-7pm at Davie High School. Please let all those who purchased cookie dough know that we deeply appreciate their support of the band and that we are sorry for the inconvenience. This was an issue with the delivery company and not the fault of the fundraising company or the bands.
Again, this will be a "drive-thru" style pick-up in the BUS parking lot. ALL MONEY must be turned in at this time. We cannot release cookie dough to you unless we have received your money. If you still have not collected all your money from those you sold to, please collect it from them ASAP so you can turn it in on June 9th. Please make sure that all money is in a sealed envelope with your name, the amount, and "Cookie Dough Money" written on it.
TURN-IN DAY for Instruments/Uniforms/Equipment/Music - posted 05/26/20
Many of you have things you need to turn in. If you have a school-owned instrument, marching band uniform, mouthpieces, music, music books, or equipment, you can drop those things off at the high school (at the arts patio) on Monday, June 8th from 12-4:30pm. SENIORS, please remember that you will not be able to receive your diploma and cannot graduate if you have not turned in all items and paid all fees. You can also, drop things off at the Cookie Dough pick-up on June 9th.
