December Band Booster Meeting Canceled

posted by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated ]

Hi Band Families!  We know everyone is busy this time of year and we do not have pressing matters to discuss, so we are canceling this Thursday’s Band Booster Meeting. 

We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and we will be seeing most of you next week at the Grand Holiday Concert. 

Please take note of the following:

1.  Please take a moment to look over the volunteer sign up page.  Dewey’s, PNC and NCFC all have upcoming needs for workers.  These are all great ways to earn money for the trip to Washington D.C.  AND Fruit and Nut needs help THIS Friday, December 13th. 

2.  Our next Band Booster meeting will be held on January 16th (instead of January 9) due to Chorus concert being held on the 9th.  The meeting will be held in the band room at 7:30 pm.

Thanks you everyone and we look forward to seeing you soon!

The Fruit is Coming! Help Needed!

posted Dec 2, 2019, 1:39 PM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Dec 2, 2019, 1:39 PM ]

Hello Band Families :)

Thanks to your sales efforts, we have a lot of yummy fruit and nuts coming our way in less than two weeks!  It takes a lot of people to unload the truck, inspect, sort and bag the fruit, deliver to teachers, and help parents with pick up.

There are short shifts available all day to fit any schedule, or you can stay all day if you're able.  Everyone who's done it before will tell you we have fun, and you'll get fed!

Please check out the signup to see how you can help on Delivery Day and plug in to let us know you're coming.  Thanks in advance for your help!

If you have any questions, please email us at

See you on Delivery Day

Hello Band Families,

Fruit and Nut orders were due TODAY (11/22).  A BIG THANK YOU to those who have already turned theirs in!  

If you were holding out for that last sale, double checking your order form, or simply forgot to turn it in, please bring it with you to the band banquet and turn it in to us as soon as you arrive.  We'll be at a table on the side of the cafeteria.  Our order for the farm bureau must be completed this weekend.  

Please make sure you include contact information on your order form, so we can reach you if we have any questions or problems.


Please check out the signup to help on Delivery Day.

If you have any questions, please email us at

See you at the banquet!

Fruit and Nut Orders Due Friday

posted Nov 19, 2019, 6:10 AM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Nov 19, 2019, 6:11 AM ]

Hello Band Families!


Wow!  It seems like we just distributed Fruit & Nut Sale packets to the students, and it's already time to turn them in!  We hope your sales were a big success!  Collect those final payments, check your order forms for accuracy, and send them in this week.  

A collection box has been placed in Doc's office.  If you chose not to participate in this fundraiser, please write "No Thanks" on the white name label of your student's packet and turn it in so the envelopes can be reused.  


We need all order packets back by this Friday so we can prepare our master order for the Florida Farm Bureau.  We'd love to have them sooner rather than later, so if you've completed your sales, please return your orders as soon as possible so we may begin processing them.  

The next step is to get ready for all that fruit to arrive!  Delivery Day is Friday, December 13th.  If you helped last year, we'd love to have your help again!  And if you didn't help last year, come join us this time.  It's easy and fun, and we'll provide breakfast munchies and pizza for lunch.  

We'll need morning people (and a few handtrucks) to help unload the truck, some folks to stay around to sort and bag the fruit and pick the orders, and some afternoon people to staff the pick up table after school.  The signup will be posted on the band website later this week, and we'll send a reminder with the link.  We look forward to seeing you and thank you in advance for your help.
