Band Memory Book

If you haven’t ordered your band memory book yet, there is still time! To get yours, go to, and enter school code 101468881455232. Plus, if you order by the end of October, you will receive a 10% discount. Every year I hear about people who didn’t order a memory book and regretted it when they were delivered to everyone else. This is a great way to commemorate the year and you have the opportunity to add customized pages to your individual book. If you’d like to see examples of what these have looked like in the past, you can stop by my office and check out past years’ books.
