Time to be Flexible Again!
Hello Parents and Students:
We told you that you would learn the word “flexible” by the end of the year and we were not kidding. It is time to use our magic word again. We have a change in our March N Spartans schedule. Please delete the football game Villa Park VS. Mater Dei that was scheduled on Thursday, August 29th, it has been moved to Saturday, August 31st but band will NOT be performing at this football game. Please plan on still going and supporting Villa Parks football team as a student.

Snap! Raise Campaign Message From Major Jay
Hi Villa Park HS Marching Band 2019 Parents and supporters!
We’re kicking off our fundraiser with Snap! Raise the nation’s leading fundraising platform for groups, clubs and teams. For the past five years, Snap! Raise has helped more than 35,000 groups in the U.S. raise more than $400M in funding! I’m excited to get started and have one vital request.
I ask that you help your student identify at least 20 people they will reach out to via Snap! Raise, and gather their email address prior to our team meeting on Friday, August 30.
The list of 20 people should include many of your child’s biggest fans and needs to be completed in full to ensure our campaign is set up for success. It is my hope and expectation that each student will have a major impact on our program. Here are the next steps:
· Help your student select at least 20 potential supporters
· Enter their names and correct email into the NOTES feature on your students’ phone
· Avoid using emails of teachers, peers of your students, or strangers
Here are 20 examples of people your student should consider adding at a minimum.
