HELP!! We are in need of a concession stand manager for our 2018-2019 middle school football games. The band programs at both HHS and KLMS have been given permission to run the concession stands for the home games. The manager acts as a liaison between the two schools. The HHS Band Boosters supply the stand with products. We supply parent volunteer workers, and they give us a cut of the profit. 🙂 The manager would open the concession stand (with the high school liaison) and be present during the game to be sure all is well. After the game, they would help count the money (with the HS liaison). That’s all! If you are interested/willing, please reply to this email. Thank You in Advance!

We will be talking to the students about summer camp opportunities. This is a GREAT way to motivate your young musician to continue their practice over the summer months. Most major universities around the state (and the country) have some kind of band camp during the summer. I am providing links to the registration/information websites for some band camps if you would like to find out more about them.
Pflugerville ISD (this will be a day camp at Pflugerville HS) June 11-14: More information soon!
