Family Run Through
It’s that time of year again… We’d like to invite the parents, grandparents, and/or siblings of the DCMB members to our annual “Family Run-through” on Thursday, October 30th at 5:00 PM. This is your chance to come and march the show that you’ve been watching all season! Have you been sitting in the stands thinking, “boy, I’ve always wanted to groove around a football field”, or, “I just KNOW I could totally rock that lower body choreography when Danzon starts!”. Well…now’s your chance! We hope to see everyone there!

Private Lessons
We are hoping to elevate the number of students taking private lessons to 75% of all students.  >> Download List of Preferred Teachers <<  With concert band auditions around the corner, now is the time to start!

Marching Band Schedule During the PLAYOFFS
The band will rehearse for all play-off games on Thursdays after school.  We will start at 3:10 and finish when the “work is done”.  We are flexible with your schedules but ask that anything “routine” be worked around such as work or doctor’s visits.  Excused absences such as out-of-town trips or practice for a winter sport are all excused absences.  Participation in games are mandatory except where excused by Mr. Bradstreet.  Please remember that all GAMES are on SATURDAY.

Dublin Coffman’s Band On The Run 5K – Re-Cap
What an amazing day for the students!  If you didn’t attend the event, you missed out in seeing our students conduct themselves at the highest level.  We were able to run this fundraiser with only 4 parents and the students picked up the rest of the responsibilities.  The kids provided an atmosphere that even “seasoned” runners were amazed at the atmosphere of the event.  In short, we hit a home run ball!  Special thanks to Mrs. Merino!! You are amazing and extremely dedicated to making our organization stronger.

Note about DC Fundraisers:  It has always been our intention that the Dublin Coffman Band Program only offer “non-guilt” fundraisers.  Basic philosophy: If you want to participate, participate.  If you can’t/don’t want to participate, don’t.  BUT, if you want to buy Coffman Apparel, we hope you buy ours.  If you want to run in a 5K, we hope you run in ours.  We are not into selling “guilt” fundraisers, i.e candles, candy bars, and cookie dough.  So a big “THANK YOU” to anyone who purchased a show shirt, apparel, ran in the 5K or who purchased a mattress last spring.  You have definitely made our organization stronger.

Scrip Orders
It is time to place your Scrips Orders for November.  Starting with this November order, all money earned will go into your student’s 2015 Band Camp account.  Yes, I said 2015 Band Camp!  It is never too early to get started and I know of several families that have fully covered their student’s band camp fees with Scrip orders.

The orders are due to me by November 1st.  If you have any questions, please see >> SCRIP Order Form << or call Mrs. Farahay.
