Urgent Uniform Needs!

Please read the following request from our Boosters:

We must make this shoe order by Friday, April 13. Please respond right away. We don’t need your payment right away but we must know your intentions. More information below:

Thank you!

Good afternoon. I’m Jill Call and I’m secretary for KMS Band Boosters. We are getting ready for our marching band season and I have some information for you. Also, I need information from you!

We issue a red polo shirt for each member. Please have your student try it on for size. They have grown! We need to make sure the shirt fits comfortably. Not sloppy, but loose enough to wield an instrument and long enough to tuck in, even with a harness begging it to come loose.

Black socks. At least two pair, please.

Black slacks. Your student has been sitting for all concerts thus far. Have them stand up! Have they outgrown the length? Considering donating yours to the uniform closet. We may have slacks to fit your student, as well.

Belt. No studs or grommets or large buckles. Plain black belt. Thank you.

SHOES!  If you are a parent of a sixth grader, or a parent of a child who thinks their feet have grown since the fall — please know that we fitted them for shoes today.  The cost will be 40.88.If your child is in 6th grade or is in 7-8 and thinks they need shoes!  Please verify by:

Disney Trip Firm Deadlines

Dear KMS Band Families,

We have some firm deadlines coming up quickly for our Disney Trip! Our trip may be in danger if we do not meet these deadlines for students and chaperones.

Thank you for your prompt attention.

Chaperones: Please get fingerprinted ASAP to chaperone this trip.

You MUST be fingerprinted at North Kitsap School District Office by appointment:

Please contact Therese Caldwell (TCaldwell@nkschools.org   360-396-3007to make an appointment to be fingerprinted.

Fingerprinting needs to be done asap as it takes upwards of 3 weeks to get approval once fingerprints have been taken. Chaperones will not be allowed to go on our Disney trip if their fingerprints are not up to date and approved.

Students and Chaperones: Total of $500 nonrefundable airline deposits are due by March 7th.

Each student and chaperone account must have $500 in order to secure airline tickets. The deadline for this $500 in each account is March 7th.

If you would like to apply for a partial scholarship for your student or yourself as a chaperone please contact kingstonmsbb@gmail.com

If you have met the above criteria we are ready to purchase your airline tickets soon. Please reply to this email with your  or your student’s full name as it should appear on the airline ticket

Did you (like myself) get an email from our chaperone coordinator stating that you needed to complete or update your volunteer paperwork?
