Parents, friends and family members are also encouraged to decorate the band room with fun and inspirational “Paper Plate Awards.”  Paper plates can be as simple or fancy as you want them to be – many parents decorate plates with photos of their students, inspirational phrases, funny pictures, etc.  Let’s cover the walls of the band room!
