Beginner Band Concert
This Tuesday!!

It's hard to imagine, just 8 weeks ago our 6th grade band students held their instruments for the first time.  Now this Tuesday they will be having their very first band concert!  This is one concert all band families will always remember.  

Due to the band sizes and the popularity of this concert, once again Baldwin & Riley Street Middle Schools will be having their own concerts.  

Baldwin Middle School will be playing first with their concert starting at 6:30 pm. After the 6th graders play, the High School Jazz Band will come out and play for you as well.

Once that concert is complete, Baldwin will exit and Riley will come in for their concert.  Riley's concert will start at 8:00 pm with the High School Jazz Band following after their performance as well!

PLEASE NOTE:   Due to the two concerts back to back, the parking lot will be busy.  Riley parents, please remember to give yourself enough time to find a parking space and to get into the building.

There will also be a Band Booster table set up outside the auditorium by the back cafeteria where the kids come out.  Please feel free to come introduce yourselves and grab a flyer or two.  We also will be selling the KeyCard books there, as well as having our Direct Your Dollar box in case you wanted to turn in any Family Fare/D&W receipts.

We look forward to meeting you!
Marching Band
Jenison Results & Reeths-Puffer Competition
After working hard at practice, the Hudsonville Marching Band boarded their busses and traveled to Jenison to participate in Jenisons huge band competition.  I'm happy to say that not only did we end up marching away to a 3rd place finish with a score of 86.525 which was our highest MCBA score of the year, but it also moved us up in standings to 8th place over all for Division 1!   For those that are not in marching band, the top 10 bands in each division end up going to state!  

We only have one more competition before state and that is next weekend at Sparta. (Reeths-Puffer is putting it on, but Sparta is hosting it)  If you would like to see them perform at Sparta, here are the details.
Address:  475 Sparta Dr   Sparta, MI 49345
Performance Time:  Hudsonville will take the field at 6:26 pm
Cost:  $8 for Adults
$6 for Students/Senior Citizens
 $25 for Family (2 adults max and their immediate children
             Pre-school age children and under are free.

If you can not make it to the Reeths-Puffer competition there are 2 more ways you can see their show.

Friday night:  Hudsonville will be taking on West Ottawa, but more importantly it will be Senior Night when we recognize our Seniors as this will be the last time they will get to take the Hudsonville football field.  (We will miss this group of seniors)

Saturday:  The band will have their final run through at 2:30 pm!  Family and Friends are welcome to come watch!!  Don't forget, YOU are part of our band family, so that includes YOU!
Thank You
Freshman & JV Concessions

We would like to thank all the families that ended up working concessions for the Freshman & JV Football games this year!  We had a lot of new faces join us and everyone did a great job!  This is such a good fundraiser for our bands and we couldn't do it without your help.

We would like to give a special recognition to some people.   First off to the Grandpa who came and worked alongside his Granddaughter!  Thank you, Dale Van Gilder!  It was fun watching you two work as a team!  It will be a night she will remember. 

We also would like to thank the following volunteers for giving up more than one night by working multiple games!  Moni Sadler, Jen Alberda, Tammy Brouwer, Denise Foupt, Conner Foupt, Kristen Hearth, Alayna Hearth, Connie Mauk, Maxim Poel, and June Matthysse.

If you wished you could of helped, we will have more opportunities this spring for the HS Track meets!  Until then.. enjoy your time off this winter.
Scrip Bonus Days
and a special just for Hudsonville Bands!!
This week Scrip is having their Bonus Days!  What does that mean for you?  Every day Scrip will be having specials on select merchants and the deals are only good for those 24 hrs.  So if you see something you like, you will want to buy it now so you can get that higher rebate!  I will be posting on our facebook page the link every day so you can see what they have.

Now on to the special just for Hudsonville Bands!  Rachael (our amazing scrip coordinator) has been talking to some of our local businesses to see what it would be like to be able to order gift cards for them on our Scrip page.   For 3 weeks we will be running a trial to see how it goes.  If we have some success, we might do this again. 

For the next three weeks (ending November 4th), you will be able to purchase the following gift cards.  These will be Physical gift cards, so if you order by Monday night, you will get them that Friday!

DJ's Pizza Pub Gift cards.  They are the physical gift cards and come in $25 denominations and you will get a 30% rebate!

Avon Shop Gift Cards   They are the physical gift cards and come in $25 denominations and you will get a 25% rebate!    ** The card can only be used in the Avon Store in Hudsonville**   

If you would rather order your avon online than come in the store, or you have family out of town that would of wanted to help support your student, Rachael set up a fundraiser on her website.   If you click on this link  AVON STORE  you will earn a 25% rebate for your student!  After she receives your order, she will email you to find out which student you would like your 25% to go to!  How amazing is that!   So anyone across the us can place an order, pay online & have it direct shipped to their house!  (Free shipping on orders over $40!)  

If you don't do scrip, these DJ's Pizza & Avon rebates are HUGE!  Here I get excited to get a 10% rebate at places. 

If you would like to earn some money for your students band account, now is the time you would want to sign up for scrip so you can take advantage of these deals!  

To learn more about scrip and how to sign up, please visit Scrip under Fundraisers on our website... or click here!   If you have any questions on how to set up your scrip account you can email Rachael at
