PARENTS

Michelle D. - Parent Cheering

Parents are an essential part of a successful experience for students in the band program. Your family’s support is very meaningful to your kids both in the stands and on the field. Whether you are driving a rousing response to the band taking the field, or at the conclusion of a show, or you are working Concessions to help fund all that your child will do each year; your contribution is apparent.

That participation starts with being informed. This page is but a starting place to staying informed via Remind and and the tools available on the site such as the Calendar, the Band Booster information pages, the Volunteer section and even checking out the photos and videos from recent and past performances and events. We encourage you to explore the rest of the site, and sign up for notifications via Remind to stay connected.

MULCHAPALOOZA

 

February 2nd – March 12th Extended to March 17th!

Deliveries and pick up orders will be Saturday, March 20th, in the Forney High School Parking lot.

About the Mulch

We are providing high quality mulch in 3 cubic foot bags (this is 50% larger than what you’ll find with many local retailers), in Hardwood, and Colored Mulch varieties (red, brown, black).

Shareable Resources

To get the word out, we created a few simple shareable items for you to print, or share to social media. Remember to instruct family, friends and neighbors to put your student(s) name in the order field when ordering their mulch, to make sure your student gets credit for the sale.
