The Big Band BBQ Bash will be on April 22nd at the McClean/Guin household from 5-8pm.  Ms. James is looking for a few more dad's to grill hot dogs and hamburgers.  You may email Ms. James at sjames@melissaisd.org if you are interested.

The Band Banquet is to be held May 6th, at 7pm.  Invitations are going to be mailed this Monday, April 4th to the address the students signed off on. Only one invitation will be mailed per student.  If you have not received the invitation by Friday, please email me.  Students are complimentary as usual, courtesy of the Melissa Booster Club, Inc.  However, students must still RSVP so that we have enough tables and plates of food.  Great news this year, we are not having to limit guests per student to two.  Each guest will be $25.  RSVP's and checks for additional meals must be turned in to Ms. James by April 18th.  No late RSVP's accepted and no tickets will be sold at the door.  

Ms. James is requesting Senior baby pictures  and their Senior picture for the slide show at the banquet to be sent to bandbanquetpics16@gmail.com.
