We are changing the format of the email just a bit this week - all new items will be shown in Bold, so please at least glance at those items! Thanks :)

    • Butterbraid Fundraiser - Sales were so high in the fall, we've scheduled another Butterbraid fundraiser! Students can collect orders from Feb. 20-Mar 6, with delivery on Mar 29 at 1pm, in time for Easter. We NEED a parent that can run this for us: compiling order forms, communicating with the company to order the pastries and manage the delivery to the school and students (there is no selling involved on your part at all - just coordinating efforts). Students earn $5 per pastry. If you would be willing to run this fundraiser, let us know.
    • ShopwithScrip - Enroll at www.ShopwithScrip.com using our enrollment code A71582FL57366. Any questions contact Carla at carlajduff@gmail.com.
    • AmazonSmile - link for the band: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/51-0548043.
    • Fry's Community Rewards - earn money for our band by linking your VIP card. Go to: https://www.frysfood.com/topic/new-community-rewards-program and link to HHS Band Boosters (#80033). For more info, see our website (under fundraising).

    • Concert/Jazz Band Spring semester payment ($50) - was due on Friday, January 12
    • Solo & Ensemble: Tier 1 - Saturday, January 20
    • Jazz Fest is a few short months away and we (& Chris Page who is the Jazz Fest Chair!) need your help. We are currently looking for individuals to serve as chairpersons for different areas during Jazz Fest - this doesn't have to be a parent but does need to be an adult. Maybe Grandma or Grandpa would be interested?? For a complete list of areas and to sign up, click here:
      There will be a meeting on Wednesday, January 17 at 7 pm at Panera (Dana Park) for all those that are willing to help out as a chairperson. After that meeting, we will ask for additional volunteers to help for each area - you won't be doing it alone!

  • We are currently looking for bids to make improvements to the marching band practice field (sprinklers, leveling, retaining wall, etc.). If you know of any companies that might be interested in giving us a bid - construction, landscaping companies, please let us know by replying to this email. We do already have 1 bid and are looking for a few others.

Have a wonderful week!
