Registration information for 2017-18

Students will be given a HARD COPY of this in class today but all families are asked to read over and prepare for our Registration for next year.  Registration is for ALL members of the Band (not just marching band) and new this year is an online tool that will help communication between myself and students/parents.  

Once you are read to gain access to CHARMS, please send Mr. Owens and email and that will confirm your request and you will be sent your login information for the new site.  All other forms are available in the CHARMS site so please don't delay and get your request in today!  

Congratulations to Symphonic Band & Wind Symphony

Both groups performed in the GMEA District 13 Large Group Performance Evaluation last week at Discovery HS.  Wind Symphony performed on Wednesday (3/15) and Symphonic Band on Friday (3/17).  Both groups earned ALL SUPERIOR Ratings both on stage and in sight-reading.

Make sure you congratulate all the students in the Band Program for this awesome achievement!


It's Grill Season!!! Come shop with us

OK, so we all like to eat!  And most people like to have steaks, burgers, chicken, pork and seafood cooked to perfection.  Well no matter how you like it prepared, you have the chance to get some CHOICE CUT products from Butcher's Choice of Atlanta, Inc. - a vendor located right here in Gwinnett County!

How does it work? Glad you asked.  All you have to do is place an order for quality meats and support the Mountain View Band at the same time.  Here's the BROCHURE & ORDER FORM.  You can place the order yourself by contacting Butcher's Choice directly (information is in packet).  The band will have a date set for delivery (first one on May 11th) where he will be here with your order OR you can arrange a time to go by Butcher's Choice for more options.

What all is included?  You have to check out the BROCHURE & ORDER FORM.  There are great variety packs for beef, pork, chicken and seafood PLUS, if you decide to go to Butcher's Choice (located in Lawrenceville) you have the opportunity to personalize or order a little more.

How much is it?  Again, check out the BROCHURE & ORDER FORM.  There are options for FULL CASE and HALF CASE (again, see the Brochure).  The food is comparable to the type you would get in fine restaurants and is still around market price (or less).  So you can get enough food for your family (sold by the case) or get ready for the neighborhood cookout and not spend a whole lot of money!  It's truly a great deal - you get quality food that you can enjoy all while helping the families of the Band Program.

I'm in Band, how does this help me?  Well if you sell two cases, you have met your March/Spin a Thon required fundraiser for Marching Band and every FULL case after that, you earn $60 to help with your band expenses.  No, you don't have to be in Marching Band to participate.  Money earned can help with trips and other band related expenses. This fundraiser will be going on all year so people can buy now and continue to purchase as needed throughout the whole year and you continue to earn credit when they do.  Again, people like to eat and this is quality meats just in time for the summer!!!

So what do I do next?  You guess it, check out the BROCHURE & ORDER FORM, decide what you want and place your order and then wait to have it delivered to you or visit Butcher's Choice and get yours before our next delivery date (or afterwards too if you finish the whole case - we're not judging).  If you decide to order directly from Butcher's Choice, be sure to indicate what student/family so that they can receive the credit.

It's just that easy.  Band families, spread the word and encourage people to shop for their quality meats with the Band and Butcher's Choice and they can keep ordering all year long.  So, let's get ready for GRILL SEASON (or baked, broiled, fried) and have an AMAZING YEAR!!!!

Kroger Rewards Fund Raiser


The Band has partnered up with Kroger and all you have to do is shop there.  But not just you, any family member in the country who shops at Kroger can help our program simply by registering their Plus Card and indicating our Program as a beneficiary.  Please read the letter below for directions on how this fund raiser will benefit out program beyond just our own community!

IF YOU ENROLLED BEFORE AUGUST 1, 2016, Kroger requires that you register again.  It will only take a few minutes but please sign up and encourage your friends and family all over the country to help pledge their support to our program.  It does not take away from their points in any way so help spread the word!  Also, there is a TYPO with Kroger, when searching for us, we're listed as MOUTAIN VIEW (missing an "N" in mountain" - it's ok, we're still in the system and you can help us!)
