Solo & Ensemble Volunteers


Attention All DHS Band Parents & Students:

We need 35-50 adult volunteers for UIL Solo & Ensemble this Saturday, March 1. You can volunteer all day or part of the day (preferably all day). The work mainly consists of monitoring audition rooms and/or hallways. The band officers will be running the concessions stand. Even if you can only work a couple of hours, we can use you! If you can work, please contact Mark Fowler at mark.fowler@desotoisd.org or (972) 230-0735.

We also need at least 4 parent volunteers to help feed and support the judges. This will include arranging for breakfast and lunch. If you are interested in helping, please contact Chris Smith at csfam5@sbcglobal.net or (214) 808-8302 as soon as possible.

The day runs from 7:00 AM until 5:30-6:00 PM with a lunch break from 12:00-1:00 PM. Actual performance time is 8:00- 5:00 PM. We are expecting about 1400 students.

Lunch will be provided for volunteers.

Please contact Mr. Brown, Mr. Fowler or Chris Smith to volunteer.

2014 Spring Trip
Heritage Music Festival
St. Louis, MO
April 24-27, 2014

The DeSoto Band Program will be traveling to St. Louis, MO to perform at Heritage Music Festival, April 24-27, 2014. To get a firm number of students participating in the trip, a $160.00 non-refundable payment by November 15, 2014 is required. Anyone not returning this form, with the deposit, by this date will not be registered for the trip.

PLEASE NOTE: Students with outstanding fees or past due student account balances will not be allowed to register for the trip; this is a school-wide policy. Any monies received will be posted to clear any outstanding fees/charges and past due balances before they are applied to the 2014 Spring Trip installments. For Student Account status, please email Carol Smith at csfam5@sbcglobal.net.

The deposit and subsequent payments may be taken from your Student Account if, 1.) the student is current on all fees and charges, 2.) the student has enough money in their account, and 3.) the student does not have any past due balances in their account. In addition to the $475.00 trip cost, students are responsible for their own pocket money. More details will soon follow.
