Dear Trinity Band Family,
We begin with a note from the directors:
Trinity Band Parents,
We have asked current Trinity Band students to help with our colorguard recruiting efforts for the 2015-2016 season. Mr. Agustin will be hosting 2 introductory clinics April 28 and 29, culminating with a formal audition on May 1. All clinics and auditions will take place from 4:30-6:30pm on the THS campus. All candidates interested in auditioning MUST attend both clinics. Any band member who recruits a new guard member who attends both clinics, the audition, and enrolls in marching band for the entire first trimester will have $200.00 paid to their band dues by the band department at the conclusion of marching season. This only applies to new recruits who stay enrolled in marching band through the entire season and maintain their eligibility. You may recruit as many students as possible and receive the $200.00 credit for each guard member who enrolls, up to total amount of band fees owed.
Recruiting flyers and forms are available for your student in the band hall (or see attached). You must fill out the information on the form and return the completed form to Mr. Wahrmund. All completed forms must be turned in to Mr. Wahrmund by Monday, April 27, 2015 by 4:00pm.
Monday, April 6 – LAST DAY FOR LOGGING YOUR VOLUNTEER HOURS! Extended grace period ends Monday, April 6, 2015 – see “cheat sheet” from last week for THS Band event dates.

Jazz Bands will play. There will be door prizes. The Band Council will unveil the theme for the band banquet!
6Stones Black and Blue Run for Hope will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2015. Once again, the Trinity Band has been given the opportunity to sign up for course monitor positions. For each volunteer who signs up and works the event from the Trinity Band, 6Stones will donate $10 to the Band! Help the community, help the band – it’s a two for one good deal! Please see 2nd page of the attachment for more details.
THS PTA also wants to encourage you to log your VIPS hours! Reminder the dollar amount of any items that you may have donated for teacher appreciation can be converted to volunteer hours in the VIPS tracker. On the topic of generous donations, look for upcoming information about Teacher Appreciation Week in May. Once again, PTA will provide lunch for the wonderful faculty and staff, and will ask for donations of desserts for the luncheon (tentatively scheduled for May 12). More news to follow…
Let us also congratulate Margaret Collins who will be the next THS PTA Treasurer! Yeah, Margaret!
