Such happiness!When Mr. Smiley Face sees empty lockers during the holidays he believes students are spreading the joy of music to their families! Oh... AND practicing!

Fruit Fundraiser Update - We sold a BUNCH today! Thank you to those who busted tail and sold over $1200 in one day! That's AWESOME!
Wednesday Night Update #2: - EVEN AWESOMER NEWS! (yeah, yeah I know Aswesomer is a real word) WOW - We had some GREAT sales today! So very happy to say we have met our requirement of items sold so we do NOT have to pay a crazy shipping charge! We do still have a few more days if you want to still get some more orders in. The only stipulation is that WE HAVE NO MORE GIFT BOXES TO SELL!!!! (Way to go Katie Cook and Sabrina Fischer and Barbie and Jenna and Abbi!) Sell ANYAmount of the first page - anything that is NOT a Gift Box!
This is fresh fruit right from Florida to your house! It's going to taste amazing! Send me an email or send money in with a band student to the band room!
We are once again taking some of our outstanding student musicians down to experience the Brass Band of Battle Creek. There are limited spots available. Only students who are playing at the top of their class will even be considered.
The goal is to give our students the chance to experience rehearsals from 11-4 on Friday and also to attend the concert Saturday night at Kellog Auditorium. We will be visiting Guitar Center and the Mall in Kalamazoo. There are two options for activities Saturday - The Kalamazoo River Valley Museum is free and/or the Air and Space Zoo is $15.
We are looking for several adults to volunteer to drive and chaperone this trip as well. Of course you have to pass a background check and be one of those types who love being with the outstanding students of Farwell Bands!
The trip is Friday December 6 and Saturday December 7. Students will be missing a full day of school.
Cost - $35 towards the cost of the Concert Ticket and Hotel. Money for lunch and supper Friday and Saturday. Breakfast on Saturday will be at the hotel.
If you are interested in helping drive contact Mr. Shimmons at the school or through Remind.
Band Boosters are working hard on raising money to replace our aging Timpani that have been at the schools since the early 60’s. They are wearing out and are in dire need of replacement.
W are selling fruit straight from the Florida Citrus Groves to your counter!
We have two weekends and one full week to sell the fruit. Money and orders need to be turned in Nov. 11.
The goal is for every student to sell at least 5 cases of fruit!
Band Boosters are always collecting Box Tops for Education as one more way of generating revenue for the program.
The process is soon to change though from the old method for the past 22 years of - you clipping the box tops and sending them into school. It is soon to be all digital through your smartphone and the BoxTops app.
If you STILL have actual BoxTops that you have clipped and are saving to send in sometime soon this is the time to do it! Get those in to the band room before they expire!
From here on out you will scan all your boxtops with your smartphone. The process should make things run much more smoothly. We all just have to remember to take our phones out after a shopping trip and scan those BoxTops so we get credit!
