Welcome to the 2018-2019 Season of the FCMB!

By now you should have all received Mr. Poremba’s email regarding registration for the 2018-2019 marching band season. If you have not – don’t panic because if you reading this email you will have access to all of the information!

Please complete your online FCMB registration before June 22nd. It only takes a minute or so and helps us get our roster in order. Our website for all things “BAND” is www.musicmentors.org
On the home page you will find Mr. Poremba’s registration letter and the registration link!

Your next stop should be to visit the “Links/Forms” tab. There you will find several sections for you to find useful information to refer back to. You will use the “FCMB” section the most if you are in marching band. This information will continue to be updated over the next couple weeks as we finalize Spiritwear forms, Uniform Order forms, etc.

We are sooo excited to begin yet another fantastic season with all of our marchers!!

Housekeeping Details

The first couple weeks as new information becomes available, we try to get it out as soon as we can, so you may receive more emails in the beginning of the season. As band continues, emails come out usually on Sunday night with information for the week. If you have any questions regarding booster information, fundraisers, spiritwear, etc – please feel free to contact me, Angie Arslanian at President@musicmentors.org, or the appropriate committee. If your questions are regarding absences, conflicts, concerns regarding band itself – those questions need to be directed to Mr. Poremba himself and his email is porembas@mentorschools.org.

For those students/families no longer in marching band or any concert band who wish to not receive these emails, please hit the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email.
