NEW YORK TRIP MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear parents:
All money for the New York Trip must be in Mr. Wallace’s hands by Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011!!! All money for the trip was due March 1st. If I don’t have this money by Wednesday, your child and you will NOT be going on the trip and you WILL NOT receive a refund. We are in jeopardy of losing our hotel reservation and tickets to the Blue Man Group. On Thursday, I will send a revised list of fully paid people to the tour company and that is who will go on this trip.
There can be NO delay. I have stretched this as far as I can. I am not stressing over this trip anymore!!! The money was due March 1st and we are now 20 days late. YOU knew this when you paid your deposit in October. I have to have this money as soon as possible.

Randell Wallace
Band Director

Clay Chalkville Friday Night Football vs. Hoover

If you plan to purchase a ticket for the game Friday night, you should do so as soon as possible. Here's I understand - Hoover initially received 1,000 tickets and have sold all of those. The word is that Hoover will be coming to Clay tomorrow around noon to pick up most, if not all, remaining tickets. Tickets are $7 per person. I'm not trying to alarm anyone or say that if you don't buy a ticket now, you won't get one. But I don't want anyone to miss out either!

Since the game is at Clay and a capacity crowd is expected, help is also needed in the Concession Stand. If you are interested in helping, please contact Bill Kennedy at

Go Cougars and Cougar Band!
