Important updates

Calendar
Please review the calendar for any updates. At this time the Coldwater Parde and Mercer County Fair Show have been cancelled. Rehearsals
Due to the Governor’s mask mandate, the band is to wear masks/facial coverings in public spaces. Starting July 28, students are to wear a mask when arriving, departing, and in between music/marching activities. We are also asking that students continue to keep a physical distance of 6 feet during breaks. Absences
It is important that we have as close to 100% attendance at every rehearsal. Please limit absences to those events that simply cannot be scheduled at other times. In the rare instance that a student needs to miss a rehearsal please fill out the EXCUSED ABSENCE FORM. Emails, calls, notes, etc. are difficult to keep organized. Booster Officers
If you are interested in receiving more information about becoming a Booster officer, please contact me. We would love to have you on the team! ...

July Band Updates

A note from Mr. Ruckman First I would like to thank the students, parents, Coldwater community, and friends and family of the Coldwater Band Program for the support you have continually shown the students of the band. We could not represent our school and town without your support. We are all aware of what the last 5 months have done to disrupt the continuity of the things that we for so long have expected and enjoyed. I am asking for your help in keeping the Band Program as something all of Coldwater can look to with PRIDE. Over the next several weeks I will be asking for your support. This will come in many forms, and I ask that to start, you read Chez’s letter below and consider joining the Band Booster Officers. Very soon we will be launching our Music is Instrumental campaign. With the loss of fundraisers last year and the potential of more losses this year, we have instituted the steps necessary to weather the financial hardships next year. We have already reduced the yearly budget by 60%. If you or anyone you know would like to help the band program financially, please consider supporting this fundraiser in the upcoming weeks. We appreciate your support. Together, with a focus on volunteerism, financial support, patience and understanding, we will have a successful school year, and make sure that we continue to do the best for our students. Sincerely,
Mr. Ruckman Letter from the Band Boosters Dear Fellow Cavaliers, ...
