It’s Fruit Sale Time!

It’s that time of year again – Oak Grove Bands Fruit Sale time! Information has gone home with all high school and middle school band students. This fundraiser is an important sale to us and will allow our program to continue growing and developing excellence in music here at Oak Grove.

This year’s sale will run from: Tuesday, October 12th - Monday, November 8th. 

We will be able to sell both on-line and via the order brochures and envelopes that will be given to your student! Our supporters will have an option of direct shipment to their home or a delivery to the school later in the fall.

Our website for online sales is:

Our goal is for each student to sell 5 items!

We have the following rewards in place for students:

Students that reach their goal will be treated to a donut day.

The top seller in each grade will receive a $25 gift card of their choice and the overall top seller will get a $100 gift card!!!!

We also want to give students the opportunity to earn money towards their student band accounts and fees. We know while the fee amount for the Oak Grove Bands is one of the cheapest around, it is still a large amount of money.

Funds earned from our fundraising efforts go towards the purchase of music, instruments, chairs, stands, instrument

repair, uniforms, props, supplemental staff pay, middle school band books, etc.

How this will work:

A student must sell over the minimum goal amount of 5 items to start earning towards their fees; however their ability to earn fees beyond item 5 is endless.

A student will earn 50% of the profits of each item sold over 5. Therefore, items 6-infinity sold will give a student 50% back into their band account towards band fees.

**If a student still has a band fee balance at the conclusion of the sale AND they are one of the top earners, the monetary amount of their earned reward will also be applied to their remaining fee balance**

I know we can knock this fundraiser out of the park. Good luck Grizzlies!!!!!!

First Competition – From Mr. Howell


What a day for “The Sound of Grizzly Pride!”

The band competed well against three other groups and, despite being the only group rained-on during performance, came away with some great awards and ratings for their first time out this season!

2nd Place Drum Major
4th Place Color Guard
1st Place Percussion
1st Place Marching
1st Place Music
1st Place Effect
1st Place Overall in Class 2A
Superior Rating Overall

I am sure the band will let this success power them into some really productive practices and performances in the next several weeks, as competition gets more challenging, for sure.

Keep an eye out for Week 10 Letter and Info, including the schedule for the week, coming soon.

I am proud of our Grizzly musicians and can’t wait to see what success lies ahead!

Special thanks today to ALL of the AWESOME PARENTS and SUPPORTERS that helped out at the game last night and that went with us to help today. Also, to the Hermans for providing Krispy Kreme to the entire band this morning before we left!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you soon!
