April/May PARCC Opportunities and TIPS training

posted by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated ]

This month we have multiple PARCC opportunities/events (for non-TIPS Certified) for the band families. 

Please note:  There are many more shifts available for those who are TIPS Certified.  TIPS certified means you have completed TIPS training and are certified to serve alcohol to the attendees of an event.  If you are interested in being TIPS certified (2 hour training course at Raleigh Convention Center), please contact the PARCC coordinator (John Sykes) at parcc@athensdriveband.com.  See below for May TIPS training dates.

For each hour worked, you get $8 towards your band account.  This is a very quick and fun way to pay off your account or work on next year's account.  For more information on PARCC, please visit:  PARCC (Performing Arts and Raleigh Convention Center) and Red Hat Amphitheater - Athens Drive High School Band

The BBQ is this Friday!!

Hello Athens Band!

The BBQ is this Friday, April 26, and we still have a lot of spots to fill to make it a success!  Please SignUP today so that we can make plans for the day and make sure that all of our positions are filled.  The BBQ is a very important fundraiser for the band and helps to keep costs down for ALL band members.  If you are available to help in any way then please SIGNUP!  The Band and the BBQ Committee will really appreciate it!

Please Click Here to take a look at the Band BBQ signup.  These are our biggest needs and they are all fun and easy jobs:

Dessert Makers:  We need over 900 desserts and we're only half way there! 

Scoop and Pack/Serve: We need people all day long to fill plates.  Our busiest time is 10am-12.  Sign up for any time frame that fits your schedule.

Delivery Driver:  We need several more drivers to deliver ordered plates to businesses any time between 10 and 1.  Even if you can only do 1 delivery at a specific time (maybe on your work lunch break), that will help us greatly!

If you aren't available to sign up for a job at the BBQ you can also show your support by:

- Picking up lunch for you and your co-workers

Senior Pictures Needed for Year End Video

posted Apr 9, 2019, 7:45 AM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Apr 9, 2019, 7:45 AM ]

Dear Fellow Senior Band Parents,

The senior video committee is working to create a fun keepsake for our senior band families.
It will include great memories from the past four years. We need your help to include ALL of our fabulous band seniors. We are 50% there already. 

If you have not seen the emails from us detailing the type of pictures we are looking for please email us at 


(There was a typo on the address posted in Doc's last band note) 

Thank you to the parents who have already sent in their senior's pictures for the End Of Year Video.   They are terrific!  Please remind your fellow senior parents to send in their pictures soon.   

We have asked for pictures by April 12th. Please respond to srbandv19@gmail.com  and let us know if you need a little more time to find those special pictures. 

Thank you,
Jean, Pam, and David 

A Carwash Story

posted Apr 7, 2019, 6:25 PM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Apr 7, 2019, 6:25 PM ]

Once upon a time...

Joe Banddad had a very dirty car!  Between dirt from the kids' shoes, hair from the dog, sand from the beach trip, and pollen from EVERYWHERE, his car was unrecognizable.  So, Joe took his car to one of the two Carolina Auto Spa locations for a $24 Deluxe Wash.  
When the wash was done, Joe's car looked great INSIDE and OUT!  

But ALAS, this tale does not have an entirely happy ending.  Joe forgot to buy a car wash certificate from the Band Boosters before he went! 
If only he'd done that, $8 of that car wash would have gone back to his band account!  Joe won't make that mistake again, and next time Joe, his family, and his car will live happily ever after  :)

Why buy Carolina Auto Spa gift certificates?

...$8 discount is credited to your band account for each one you buy or sell
...sell them to friends and neighbors any time of year for a continuous fundraiser
...kid dirt
...dog hair
...pollen
...beach sand (Spring Break is coming!)
...get the car clean for prom
...Mother's Day
...Father's Day
...Graduation gifts
...Teacher gifts
...Yikes! the in-laws are coming!
...stock up for summer!
...your car will love you for it!
...your car wasn't yellow when you bought it, was it?

Don't make the same mistake Joe did!  Get your car wash certificates before you go!  Get yours at the band booster meeting this Tuesday, April 9th at 7:30pm.  You'll also be able to get grocery cards, hear about new fundraiser ideas and all the latest news from Doc, and enjoy the company of other band parents. It's the place to be!

Car wash certificates must be paid for with check or cash (exact amount, please).  They cannot be billed to your account.

See you at the meeting!
Jennifer Wakeford
Car Wash Committee
