Dear Brookwood Band Parents,
I sincerely hope you are doing well, that you enjoyed some time
at home with your child without DLD. It's amazing what we begin to appreciate
I have two VERY IMPORTANT topics to discuss and I will keep them
- Taste of Brookwood
- Marching Band Letter of Intent (no payment needed
at this time)
TASTE OF BROOKWOOD:
As you are aware, we will no longer be able to host TOB on April
25, 2020 and have recently learned that May 2020 isn't an option either.
We are crossing our fingers that June 2020 will be the winner date . . .
no doubt we would love to see each other! ?? Please make sure your child keeps up
with the money for the tickets that they have sold so far as well as the
tickets that have not been sold. There is no need to sell additional tickets!
Our hope is to host the event in June and sell tickets at the door. We will
continue to keep you informed regarding arrangements.
MARCHING BAND LETTER OF INTENT:
The letter of intent for 2020 marching band is due by APRIL 15,
2020!!!!!. Here is what we know:
for the BBA Web Site is an important step in participating in the Brookwood
Band program. At least 1 parent and each student must be registered
- The University of North Georgia informed us that they
will no longer be able to host us for band camp due to the
- We WILL be going to band camp but are unsure at
this time where that location will end up.
- We do know that the fees will be GREATLY reduced
from the original $750 projected due to the loss of contract with UNG. We
had initially needed to increase fees due to moving away from Toccoa Falls
- Due to the COVID-19 emergency, we have temporarily
stopped the invoicing process because the final per marcher fee
is unknown. We don't know exactly when the season will start or
end. Those dates affect the overall costs of running the band which drive
individual fees. Once we get some clarity on when we can restart and how
the season will unfold, we'll send out specific information and
instructions. At that point we'll be prepared to discuss financial
arrangements should you need assistance. Again, we do know the cost will
be GREATLY reduced
for the coming year.
- Please visit www.brookwoodband.org to register
yourself and your child for marching band before APRIL 15, 2020. Should
you have questions, you can email email@example.com
and they will get back to you ASAP!
- When the students register, please ask them to register
for whatever instrument they want to MARCH. This includes any
percussionists (if you want to be placed on snare, mark snare, even if you
end up marching another instrument we will fix on our end.) and guard (if
they want to march guard go ahead and register them). Once video auditions
for percussion/guard are completed and we announce the results, you
can refer to #3 above! ??
- THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU GET FROM THIS EMAIL
- Do NOT
worry about financial commitment right now. If your child wants
to march, no matter their position, please go ahead and register them by
April 15, 2020. Once we release the fee, should you be in need of
financial assistance, we encourage you to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org OR
if your child decides they do not want to continue with marching
band, you can let me know and we will remove them from the
roster. WE DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN! WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!
If you have questions, do not hesitate to reach out to me! I
CAN'T WAIT to see the kids! I CAN'T WAIT for this marching season! It's time to
GET BACK TO LIFE!!
