Dear Trinity Band Family,
It’s Texas Independence Day!
Hope everyone survived (enjoyed?) the blast of winter weather.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the Band Booster Meeting tomorrow night. Attached are the meeting minutes from the February meeting for review.
If you can contribute any of the items noted below, please bring them to the meeting.
If your student has had a growth spurt and will likely need new vipers (marching shoes) next year, please consider donating his/her old marching shoes. All sizes are kept on hand for loaning out during emergencies. Vipers also double as dress shoes during concert season. When unexpected circumstances arise (and they do!), your student can check in his/her street shoes, and check out a pair of vipers! This is a great service, and we appreciate everyone who is able to contribute. Seniors are welcome to donate shoes, gloves, wicking shirts – we always need extras! And anytime you are out shopping and see a sale on black socks, please consider picking up a pack for the uniform closet. Black socks are priceless year round – they are just as important during concert season!

Spring Trip and credit balances
If you have a credit balance on your Charms account and would like to apply that balance to your last spring trip payment, please let Ms. Kanellos know (email@example.com).
For those who still have a balance due, band dues must be paid in full before any more money can be applied to the trip payments. The final trip payment is due on March 6th. If you have missed any payments so far, please get caught up right away.
HEB Ensemble Entry Fees & UIL Solo/Ensemble Fees Overdue
If you have not submitted your $6 per HEB ensemble (Brass Choir and Drumline have the longest lists of payments due) and/or your $12.50 for each UIL solo and ensemble, Ms. Kanellos will be available to accept payments for any amounts due at the Band Booster meeting on Tuesday as well as following the spring break concert on Thursday.
Volunteer hours can be logged until the end of March and then a new year begins. If you log at least one hour during the year, you are invited to the luncheon!

LOG YOUR VOLUNTEER HOURS! http://schoolctr.hebisd.edu/education/dept/dept.php?sectiondetailid=47992&
What can you earn for those hours?
BADGES: The first year a volunteer works more than 100 hours, they will receive a name badge. The year a volunteer earns a badge, they are not eligible for pins. The badge is their recognition for the year.
PINS: Once a volunteer has earned a badge, they can earn pins in the next VIPS year.
Red Apple: 100-499 hours
Silver Apple: 500-999 hours
Gold Apple: 1000+ hours
Volunteers who have filled their badge with pins will be eligible for a new volunteer service bar in lieu of a pin.
And of course, everyone’s hours together will help us bring the traveling trophy back to Trinity. It’s just one more way to Beat Bell!
KEEP ON LOGGING!
