[Sprague Band News] Updates on Current Issues

Good morning all –

I wanted to send a few updates on where we are for the current band season and we are beginning to look into next season already.

1) Winterguard is in full swing. We have five members who joined with North Salem High School to compete this season. There is a family night performance Saturday March 11 at 6 pm at North Salem High School. This is a free performance so please come support our team.

2) We have approved a band trip for Spring of 2018. We are in search of a trip coordinator to manage this process. You will be welcome to solicit assistance for a committee to help in any area you need. But having one person in charge of the process will be most effective. There are lots of moving parts to pull off a trip of this nature but we have lots of time to plan. If you are interested please contact me so we can get started on the planning process.

3) We are in need of some people who are interested in assisting in a few positions for next year. We will hold elections and appointments in May so we need to have people in place by then. Our specific needs at this time will be:

      1) Food Parent – Coordinate food for marching band season events, home football games, awards banquet, and concert season events.
      2) Band Parent – Coordinate uniforms for marching band season and shirts for Pep Band for basketball season. Pam Stroebel Powers has already volunteered to assist this position and was involved this year. Ideally we would have a Band Parent and a couple people to assist in case there are scheduling issues that         prevent people from being at events.
      3) PCI Assistant – Misty Rowland has volunteered to chair PCI again next year but would like to have an assistant to break up some of the tasks. This is a huge event that we have done for 35 years. We just need to make sure that everything gets covered and an extra hands help get things done.
      4) Prop People – Dr. Greenwood has already decided on the show for next season and has indicated there will be more props than we have used in the past. If you are handy at building then we can use you. It will likely be during the summer and we will meet on multiple occasions to get everything done.

If you are interested in helping in any of the areas mentioned please let me know. Our next Band Booster meeting will be on Thursday March 9 in the Oly Forum (the conference room across the hall from the business office) and you are welcome to join us. We need as much parent involvement as we can get to make next season a huge success.

Look forward to seeing you.

Kory

[Sprague Band News] Southridge (Hillsboro) Spectacle of Sound

All –

After receiving responses from parents we have decided The Sprague Olympian Marching Band and Colorguard WILL compete in this event this Saturday. I do not have a schedule yet since we just registered for the competition but as soon as I do know I will send an itinerary. I do need a couple parents to chaperone and ride the bus up and back so if you are available and have completed your required background check please let me know. We realize that not everybody will be able to attend due to conflicts and the short notice but we have enough students and parents that we can make this happen.

Thank you all for your quick replies this weekend and your flexibility in working with our ever-changing schedule.

Watch for updates in the next day or two and, as always, thank you again for your support.

Kory

[Sprague Band News] Hillsboro Spectacle of Sound

Band Parents

Last night Dr. Greenwood and I had a conversation in light of having to withdraw from  the Pride of the Northwest competition in Grants Pass today. He asked me to see if it would be possible to enter the Hillsboro Spectacle of Sound at Hillsboro Stadium Saturday October 22. I have contacted the NWAPA and there are openings available for this event if we choose to enter.
In order to do that we need to ensure we have enough students to march and enough parents to support the day. Dr. Greenwood understands that this is extremely short notice and that this season’s rehearsal schedule has been inconsistent and apologizes for the inconvenience. Please let me know by replying back to this email if you have a conflict that would NOT allow your student to participate on Saturday. We need to know by Monday morning so I can contact NWAPA and register for the competition.
Again, we apologize for the short notice but we would really like for the students to be able to perform the show they have been working on so hard this Fall and be able to compete. 
Thank you for continuing support
Kory

[Sprague Band News] Grants Pass Update

I regret to inform you that after a lot of discussion, Dr. Greenwood, the Sprague High School administration and the Band Boosters have decided to withdraw from competition in this weekend’s Pride of the Northwest in Grants Pass. The decision was made based on the severe weather warning and in the interest of the safety and health of the band and colorguard members as well as the parents and spectators. We feel the forecasted weather conditions are not conducive to a safe environment and puts undo risk on those trying to attend.

Sprague is not alone in making this decision. Eight other bands have withdrawn from this event in the last 24 hours for the same reasons.

We apologize for the extremely short notice but feel that this decision reflects our dedication to a safe and successful marching band season. Dr. Greenwood will explain this decision to the students today at the beginning of rehearsal today.

Thank you again for your continued support of the Sprague Olympian Marching Band and Colorguard.

Kory Knox
President – Sprague Band Boosters

[Sprague Band News] October Band Booster Meeting

All –

Next week’s home football game falls on Thursday which is the same day the Booster meeting is scheduled. Obviously, this creates a conflict so we will move the meeting to Wednesday October 12 at 6 pm in the Oly Forum. Band practice is the same day and time so that should be convenient for those who need to drop kids off. We will discuss the remainder of the Marching Band Season, Grants Pass trip, Disney trip, Fundraising and a wrap up to PCI. Please plan on being there at 6 so we can start on time and finish early.

Sorry for the short notice.
