Dear DHS Irish Guard Marching Band and Color Guard parents,
I hope you had the opportunity to experience the wonderful halftime field show at the home football game last Friday by the DHS Irish Guard Marching Band and Color Guard. It was their first performance this season and they looked and sounded great. Props for the show have been ordered and we have a crew of parent volunteers helping to build frames for the bases.
The competition season will start in earnest on Saturday, 10/22 and run for 6 consecutive weekends. This will be a great opportunity for you to show support for your student musician and/or color guard. And if you are able to participate as part of the pit-crew, you will get front row viewing of the show!!!
As you may know, having an award-winning music program requires a lot of time commitments from teachers/staff, students, as well as the parents. Aside from time commitments, there is also the need of financial commitments.
The budget for the DHS Music Program is close to $160,000 for the 2016-2017 school year. This budget is satisfied by two sources of funding: 1) voluntary contributions from parents and 2) fundraising events that are held through out the school year.
If you have not yet made a contribution for your student musician, I encourage you to make it a priority for this coming week before the competition season begins.
