Visit Charms to sign up!

If you did not pre-order band camp lunches (or didn’t order one for each day), PLEASE do not forget to pack a lunch! Adequate calories and hydration are critical for a great band camp experience!

PARENTS - We’ll see you this FRIDAY! 

Please be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, July 23!
At the close of that band camp day, parents have two important events to attend:


7 pm - Mandatory Parent Kick-off Meeting (PAC)

8 pm - Parent Show (Stadium)

Join us for essential information to get you started for the year AND then a great show to enjoy! You will love seeing how much the kids have accomplished! Both CMB and FNSB will be performing. There will be a band spirit wear table in the lobby before and after the show if you want to place an order (cash or check). We’ll also have Pope Band yard signs available for purchase - $20 cash or check.

See you on Friday at 7pm! 

CMB & FNSB - ORDER YOUR SUMMER UNIFORM PANTS!

Don’t forget to order your summer uniform pants! The directors are asking that all kids purchase these pants to have a unified look when not wearing our marching uniforms.

                 
Visit the store here to order your pants. Please read the sizing info carefully to order the correct size for your child.

Orders must be placed by July 26th.

TEACHER BREAKFAST - FOOD AND HELP NEEDED!

Each day of teacher pre-planning, booster clubs at Pope provide breakfast to the staff.  Wednesday, July 28th is the day that the PBPA is assigned to serve our wonderful teachers (160 in all)! Please sign up to provide food and/or help and show your appreciation for the Pope staff.  Helpers will set up, serve and replenish food and clean up after the breakfast. Gloves will be provided, but please wear a mask.

If you sign up to provide an egg casserole, please use a 9x13 disposable aluminum pan if possible, and note that your casserole should already be cooked.

Donations should be dropped off starting at 7:30 AM to the PAC Lobby. Helpers, please report at 7:30 as well.
 To sign up, please click HERE.  

Thank you for helping the Band show their appreciation for our Pope teachers and staff!

For questions, please contact Karen Anderson at kbanderson3@gmail.com or 678-756-7437.

CMB & FNSB - MARK YOUR CALENDARS
LIFETOUCH PICTURE DAY IS AUGUST 7th!


Please report to the band room at 8:15 on Saturday, August 7th, to get into your uniform and grab your instrument. If you ordered marching shoes, they will be available to pick that Saturday to wear for pictures. If you are wearing marching shoes from the last marching season, PLEASE BRING YOUR SHOES WITH YOU!

Lifetouch will be taking individual pictures first in the cafeteria starting at 9. EVERYONE needs to have their picture taken (whether you plan to order or not). SENIORS - these pictures will be used for your senior banners for display in the stadium later in the season! Group pictures will follow immediately after in the stadium.  These pictures are used for the football/cheer playbook. Both individual and group pictures will be available for purchase (details coming soon).

WE ALSO NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP ON PICTURE DAY!
Click here to visit the Charms sign up to lend a hand!

Picture day is a super easy and fun way to help out for a few hours! We need 6 volunteers to help get the kids in their uniforms in a timely fashion, and 2 volunteers to help Lifetouch get the kids photographed quickly and efficiently.

Do you have a talent or interest in graphic design or creating photo memory books?
Consider joining the Pope Band Yearbook Committee. 

You will be trained to create photo page layouts using Herff Jones online design program. You'll have the flexibility to complete assigned spreads on your own time. You can
design many pages or just a few depending on your availability. You’ll be collaborating with other parents to create a priceless keepsake for the band!

Training begins in September. Designing runs November - early April. Requires approximately 2 - 10 hours per month.
