Picture Retakes

If your student was not able to have their picture taken on the original July picture day, please sign up here to have their picture taken on Friday 9/14. We are asking that you sign up by Wednesday 9/12 so we can have an idea of how many students will be getting pictures taken.

Picture Ordering

The photos taken on July 28th are available for families that wish to purchase them.  A make-up day will be scheduled for those families that wish to have an individual photo taken.  We do not have that date scheduled yet.  Click here for instructions to access and order pictures. Special thanks to Stacy Pilutti for all of her help in coordinating picture day!

Remember these helpful hints….

Unique Photo Buttons
When ordering buttons, please note the separate image with the overlaid text and musical note. This file was uniquely created for this year’s band and is designed specifically for photo buttons.

Avoiding Unsatisfactory Results
Using the photo button image for wallets or other small prints will produce an unsatisfactory crop that cuts off portions of the text or creates excessive white space if the image is reduced to fit into the printing area. Likewise, using the photo button image for a large print will result in unsatisfactory quality as the finite number of pixels are degraded as the file is enlarged.

8/19 Parent drivers needed for the Blitz – 5:30-8pm

8/31 Findlay away game-UAMB will not perform at this game

It has been determined that the band will NOT travel to the Findlay game on 8/31.  Many factors went into this decision; the primary issue being travel time (4:15 departure, rush hour traffic on 23 north, etc…).  Thank you to those who’d signed up to chaperone, we encourage you to volunteer for another activity, much help is still needed.
