Annandale Fall Parades
Congratulations to the Marching Atoms on great performances Saturday in both the Annandale Fall Parade and the Wakefield Chapel neighborhood event. Both events ran very smoothly and the students did an exceptional job—check out the costumes on the Shutterfly page! Now it is time to focus on our final preparations this week for VBODA State Marching Assessment.
The AHSBB fall citrus and poinsettia fundraiser kicked off this past week. Quick-start orders are due Monday for extra chances to win gift card incentives. Please ask your student to show you the information they received in class. This fundraiser sells itself as many people are used to purchasing citrus and poinsettias from the AHS Band program. This fundraiser is for all bands as the funds it generates support all band students.
End of Season Bowling Party
All Marching Atoms are invited and encouraged to attend a party to celebrate the end of the marching season on Saturday, November 5th, from 2:45 – 5 p.m. at Annandale Bowling Alley. Sign up in teams of 6 in the band room. Cost is $10 and includes 2 hours of bowling and bowling shoes. The fee must be prepaid. Please place cash or check (made out to "AHSBB") in an envelope labeled with your name and "MB Bowling" in the red box outside Mr. Witkowski’s office. Payment is required by November 3 to reserve your team spot.
