We need photos of your 8th grade children for band banquet!

Posted by Dean Surface on May 7, 2020 in TSMS with No Comments


Hello 8th grade families,

Please send your photos in of your 8th grade child! We want to put together a montage video for the band banquet next Friday night! Yes we are still having the band banquet, just on zoom! We would prefer to have a picture of them when they were younger or in 6th grade and then a current one, but whatever you have is fine. If you have silly funny stuff that is great too! Times and zoom link info will be sent out this weekend, but we need to get started on this project now! If you are able to rename the photo before you send as your child’s name that would save a lot of time!

You can email your photos to me directly, I will need them by next Tuesday to finish this in time. Please do not wait until the last minute!

Thank you,

Trinity Bands Staff
