Last year we tried a new student fundraiser selling Carlson’s Orchard frozen pies right before Thanksgiving. It was a huge success, so we are doing it again this year. Your student received information and selling materials in class, but you can find out all about it and print the materials if the somehow didn’t make it home.

Order Form

These pies are TASTY! Last year we had several people who wanted more after they tried one. (Sorry, we can only accept orders through Monday, October 27th.)

Students are not required to participate, but a large portion of the price gets put into their band account, so it’s definitely worth the effort. If you have a jazz student going on tour, a winter drumline or winterguard student or if your student is planning to participate in Eagle Band, this fundraiser is for you.  If you’re student is a senior not needing the funds, they can leave them to the band as part of their Legacy.

For more info, contact Nancy at fundraising@edenprairiebpo.org.

 

 

The Colorguard is doing a Milio’s Fundraiser to provide sandwiches and Berry Blendz to Eagle Band members who want them between the Anoka and Champlin Park shows on Saturday, October 4th. Pit Crew, Uniform Crew and spectating parents are also invited to order. The cost is $7 per sandwich and $3 for Berry Blendz.  Your student will receive a form in class, or you can download it HERE.  Orders are due on Monday, September 29th.

Chances are good that your EPHS band student will be playing in a pep band this year. The attire for pep band is a black shirt or sweatshirt, preferably EP spirit wear. Although not required, many kids like to wear the black hoodies or crew sweatshirts and long or short-sleeved t-shirts that say Eden Prairie Band on them. The BPO is selling this Pep Band spirit wear for a limited time.  Orders are due September 18th. Credit card or checks only. Forms can be faxed or mailed to the address on the form.

Those who are going to Bands of America (BOA) in St. Louis can get in on a group ticket order. If you are not working on the pit crew, you will need to purchase tickets to watch the performance. By placing a group order, all of our reserved seats will be together, plus you won’t have to stand in the ticket purchase line.

TICKET ORDERS ARE DUE SEPTEMBER 22ND – NO EXCEPTIONS. The order form is HERE.

Eden Prairie’s preliminary performance will be Saturday, Oct. 18th between 10:30am and 1:00pm. They will find out late afternoon whether they go on to the evening Finals competition. Regardless of the outcome, we highly recommend watching the finals – these are some of the finest bands in the country! You do not need to order tickets for your Eagle Band student. Hopefully, they won’t need one!

All tickets for prelims are General Admission, and cost $19.
For the Finals, Reserved seating is located in the Upper Deck and is $28. General Admission seating is in the lower deck only, and costs $23.
Children 10 and under can get in free for General Admission, but need a full price ticket for Reserved Seating. Seniors (65+) can get a discount the day of the show only.

If you have questions, email them to info@edenprairiebpo.org.

All band parents/guardians are invited to our first BPO Meeting of the school year on Monday, September 8th from 6:30-8:00 in the EPHS Choir Room. We want to extend a special invitation to those of you who have never attended one of our meetings before. We think you’ll find them informative and fun.

New this year – we will be addressing all of our Eagle Band-specific items during the second part of the meeting so that those who do not have a student in Eagle Band will not feel obligated to stay. The BPO is SO MUCH MORE than just Eagle Band!

Hope to see you there!
