Good evening everyone,
I hope this email finds you safely at home, rested, and ready to get back to the school routine after a much deserved rest. We can look forward to clean air, rain, and the beginning of the Holiday season.
Here are your announcements:
In volunteer news, we would love to see parents regularly volunteer for bingo. The proceeds from bingo provide the students with numerous educational opportunities and allow the music program to keep annual student fees low. Please consider joining us. You may sign up for shifts using the Sign-up Genius. Please note that you may sign up for shifts both now and in the future. The Genius remains active, and you may access it and sign up anytime. You may also visit our website or reach out directly to our bingo manager for more information. Thank you so much!
In fundraising news, the pancake breakfast is Saturday, December 1st in Inderkum's atrium. Students were given pre-sale forms (due to the band directors by Thursday, November 29th). The pre-sale price is $7.00 per ticket, and $2.00 will be placed in the students' band accounts for each ticket pre-sale. The ticket price will be $8.00 on the day of the event (at the door). Running concurrently with the pancake breakfast is the annual craft fair. If you are crafty and would like to create and donate items for this craft fair, we would love to speak with you! If your students would like to create and donate items to this event, we encourage their involvement. Please reach out to our fundraising coordinator for specific questions related to either event. You may also visit our website for a link to purchase tickets for the breakfast. We'll see you there!
Please note: The Sign-up Genius for volunteer opportunities at the pancake breakfast and for craft fair donations is live. Please click on the link to view it and sign up. Thanks so much!
As mentioned in a previous communication, the music program will also be selling Christmas trees this year! All proceeds benefit the program. Sales will be run by the students.
The student Sign-up Genius for Christmas tree sales is also live. Please share the link with your students so that they may select a time to volunteer.

As a reminder there are only 19 school days left in this semester. These days will be packed with activities, performances, fundraisers, and finals. Your students will need support and reminders to make self-care a priority as they maneuver through these last days of 2018. Please encourage them to reach out for assistance whenever needed. School staff and all involved in the music program are here to help.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.
19 school days everyone - let's do this!
Have a fantastic week, and we'll see you at the pancake breakfast on Saturday!
