HELP NEEDED TO BREAK DOWN UNIFORMS FOR CLEANING
We have a late start this year, but we are finally ready to prep the uniforms to be sent to the cleaners. This effort will occur this Thursday, March 10th, from 6 – 9 pm in the black box.
Job requirements – if you have picked your students’ clothing off their bedroom floors and hung them up, you’ve got the requisite skills for this volunteer opportunity.
We need you to take the uniforms off their hangers, pile jackets in one area and pants in a separate pile. It’s a tedious job, but someone has to do it.
Parents of incoming freshmen, this is a great opportunity to meet a few of our experienced parent volunteers. And you get to meet our uniform moms, Barb Edmonds and Audrey Ishizaki, who know everything about all things.
Please contact Barb at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
DRUM MAJOR WORKSHOPS
Drum Major Workshops given by our fantastic drum majors, Madeena Siddiqui, Jon Wong, and Diveesh Singh will start Wednesday, March 16th at 3:20pm in the band room. Any student interested in being a drum major candidate is highly encouraged to attend these sessions.

Band camp will be held at the Athenian School in Danville again, Friday August 5th thru Sunday August 7th. New Marcher practice, Student Leader Training, and Student Leader uniform fittings will take place that first week of August.

LUCKY SHARES AND NOB HILL QUALITY OF LIFE CARDS
Do you shop at Lucky or Nob Hill? Would you like to support the HHS Music Department at NO COST TO YOU? Order a Lucky SHARES Card or Quality of Life card, and use it whenever you're there!

DO YOU HAVE AN INCOMING OR CONTINUING BAND STUDENT?
Would you like to defray some of those upcoming Music Department costs?
Scrip is the answer! Buy scrip from HHSMB and earn money (3% of most purchases) for your student's Scrip account! We have a wide variety of Scrip on hand, and can order Scrip from many more merchants!
Do you have a graduating senior? You can choose to put the proceeds into your student's account, OR The Student Aid Fund - used to help those who need assistance (This fund currently has $137 in it. That won't go very far!).
You can purchase Scrip from Mary Mansir, Jenny Haight or Lori Wong. Contact them by email or phone, even throughout school breaks! Scrip order forms are always available in the band and choir rooms, or can be downloaded from our web-site at http://www.hhs.fuhsd.org/mbfund#SCRIP. After you've filled out the form, please attach a check and turn it into the available envelope in either the band or choir room, or to Mary, Jenny or Lori. Mary also sells Scrip 2:05pm - 3:30pm every Friday afternoon, in the band room. You can contact Mary with your order at email@example.com or (408)245-2218, Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org (408)774-1918 or Lori at Lori_Wong@yahoo.com or (650)964-2555. Your order will be filled as soon as the scrip is available! You can choose to have Mr. Burn or Dr. Morton deliver your Scrip to your student during class, or make other arrangements with one of our scrip people. For special orders, there may be a 2 -3 week delay. Thank you for supporting our outstanding, award winning students!
