IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS 
Volunteer to help at Snack Shack

Snack shack is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the ACHS Music Department and runs the entire year. Volunteers are needed every day after school to set up and supervise students selling items from the Snack Shack and in front of the school, as well as counting money at the end of the shift. You can volunteer on a weekly basis or volunteer every other week, or once a month. Click here to sign up for a shift.


Cost Contribution details

As discussed at the Department Orientation in June, we are taking a slightly different approach to parent contributions to give families more time to plan and a payment plan that should make things a bit easier. Parent contributions are the only way we can offer the program we have, and are only half of the effort to build our budget. The other half is made up with fundraising. These funds go to show music and design, staff and band camp costs, and many other things. If you and your family would prefer the buyout option, which means zero fundraising efforts necessary, the buyout is $900 for Marching Band only.  Parent contributions are tax deductible and eligible for matching funds if you company offers this. Parent contribution payment plan details for the year are as follows:

Aug. 20:  $175 Parent Contribution Payment 2 + Color Guard uniform purchase and band supply purchase day (i.e. shoes, gloves, band polo, etc.). 

Sept. 16:  $175 Disneyland Trip Payment – GAPP students and students only participating in the Saturday Field Show Competition should contact Mr. Cook immediately.  You will not need to make this payment.

Sept. 30:  $90 Transportation to the ASB Bookkeeper (tentative amount since OUHSD still must confirm two trip itineraries) and $50 School Instrument Use Contribution to ACHS Music Boosters.

We will start releasing details about Winter Guard and Winter Drumline in October or November, as well as the ensemble parent contribution payment plans.

Jan. 18:  Second Semester Primary Ensemble Contributions:

    • $125 for Jazz
    • $100 for Concert Ensembles
    • $100 for Orchestra
    • $75 for Choir

NOTE:  Please pay for your primary 3 ensembles. All other ensembles are free (i.e. Marching Band, Concert Ensemble, Winter Drumline, then Choir is free.). If you have any questions, email Mr. Cook.

Band needs trailer, truck 
owner to pull it for shows

The band has outgrown its current truck and an additional truck rental will have a very costly affect on our budget.  If you know someone who may be selling a 24-foot to 34-foot, 2- or 3-axle trailer that could be hooked to a standard heavy duty truck, let Mr. Cook know. A low-riding trailer or non-fifth-wheel style is preferred. A side door is ideal, but draw-string rear door is required for easy loading and unloading of equipment.  The trailer may need to be slightly modified for music department uses, so borrowing a trailer is not ideal, but will be considered under our current circumstances. Email achsbandboosters@gmail.com with information.


Orientation volunteers needed 

Part of our fundraising is the sale of student agenda books during orientation. Volunteers are needed to help sell agenda books during Freshman Orientation and Taking Care of Business Week,  Aug. 19 (Freshmen) Aug. 22 (Seniors) Aug. 23, (Juniors) and Aug. 24, (Sophomores) Click here to sign up for a shift. 


Marching Band music available to students

Pep Tunes, Warm-ups, and Fair Parade music are available on the Marching Band page for download and practice. The show design team is working out the kinks on the music before we bring in the visual elements. Our intent is to get you music once it is ready, but our primary concern is getting everyone music that will not be heavily edited after the fact, but rather something we believe we keep for the season.
