Dear Cougar Band Student, Mr. Ostrow and the Booster Board have a mission for you! Every year we work to build the most AWESOME middle school band that anyone has ever heard of. We need YOUR help!
To complete this mission, every member of the Cougar Band must train hard to master the Jedi skills Master Ostrow is showing you that lead to becoming a truly AWESOME Ainger Band member. The success of the Cougar Band mission depends on everyone doing their part and working together to make amazing things happen! That includes encouraging and supporting each other on the way to accomplishing our goals.
To get you started on your mission, we want you to make a “Pledge to Practice” every day for the 10 days (you get weekends off) and ask that you seek out family and friends who will support your training efforts by pledging a penny, a nickel, a dime, a dollar or more for each day that you practice. Enter the pledges you receive and your practice time on the sheet attached to this envelope. When the 10 days are over, collect your pledges and submit your envelope to the Payments Box in the band room.
There will be a special prize for the student that raises the most money and who practices the most hours. These students will also be recognized at the Winter Concert! The funds you raise will help Mr. Ostrow and the Band Boosters do great things to help you on your mission to AWESOMENESS! Thank you for accepting this mission and may the force be with you!
Please note- this is a grade and is due by the end of the quarter on October 13th. Although pledges are preferred, students can turn in their envelopes filled out but empty. We just want to know that parents are involved in their child's practice habits.
