Band Boosters Flapjack Fundraiser

This is the website link for the Band Boosters Flapjack Fundraiser. We need to begin selling tickets. The fundraiser is Saturday August 24th from 8-10am in Owasso. We need volunteers to work, you can respond to this message if you can volunteer, there will be signup sheets in the bandroom, or contact Sandra Green 918-951-2801. You can print tickets directly from this website to sell for $7, people can also pay at the door, but we need to sell at least 100 tickets to have the fundraiser. You can turn in the money to any booster member or to the bandroom.

Band Students Attend Leadership Conference
Section leaders of the Collinsville High School Band attended a leadership conference on August 15, 2013 at Broken Arrow High School. The workshop was led by Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser who specializes in working with young people in developing a desire for excellence and a passion for high level of achievement through student leadership.
Celebrating student contributions to the school on a regular basis provides numerous opportunities for recognition by the staff and peers and reinforces school connectedness. These opportunities are more likely to have a climate that is conducive to student leadership and learning. In turn, student connectedness to school and a positive school climate have been identified as two factors that support superior academic performance and behavior.
Congratulations to these student leaders (from left to right): Micaela Rush, Kendra Mason, Cassie Kallam, Liz Caputo, Amanda Florea, Jonathan Lord, Eric Shockley, Zac Pasco, Brianna Hadley, Bree Cross, Damia Collis, Deianira Conte, Hunter Stevenson, Alyson Byers, Brandon White.

The Collinsville Band Program has approved this press release.

Blowing Off Steam?
I have no first hand information (of what or why) but the loud roaring sound heard all across town is apparently from what appears to be steam escaping from Darling Internation (i.e. the rendering plant) north east of town. I was at CHS Volleyball -vs- BTW in the gym for hours and heard nothing until I got home sometime after 6:30pm. Don't know when it started.There were no emergency crews visible so doesn't seem to be a big concern. -- Ted 7:30pm Friday 8/16/2013
The Science Of A Marble Machine
Collinsville Pharmacist Tharyn Nachtigal built a wooden marble machine which found its way into the CHS science class of Charlene Ganzel last week. I was taking photos instead of notes, but recall mention of inclined planes, inertia and gravity as examples of the many scientific features of the wooden "marbles in motion" contraption. I haven't had a chance to tak to Tharyn yet about this specific machine / work of art, but those of you that know Tharyn well understand he can do magic with wood (or a vacant building in historic downtown Collinsville). -- Ted Wright
