Oh Snap! Student Fundraisers
It's time to turn in your candy and money from chocolate sales. Please turn in all monies (no coins allowed) before winter break. Be sure your name is on the envelope before you put it in the band room mailbox. Also, we need to sell 3 Chinook books.

Back in the Day Spaghetti Dinner
February 1st, please save the date. That evening we will celebrate our 61st spaghetti dinner in the commons. All the students will perform, all the bellies will be full, all the ears will be happy. Please join us. The theme is The 90's, the students don't remember them, but we totally do. Word to your mother.

As If! Poster Distribution
Help folks not be clueless. We have posters to advertise our Winter Concerts next week. Please pick one up (or have your student get one) in the Black Box, to display at your office. Thank you.

Bake Sale, Totally!
Please sign up to bring baked goods to a Carmina concert next week. There are some new sanitary guidelines for baked goods, but do not be dissuaded, we earn a good amount from their sales. Each one needs to be wrapped. I'm going even more "old school" than the 90's and wrapping mine in wax paper to skip the plastic waste. You can sign up:

XANADU Adult Volunteer Needed
There is a scene/musical number that takes place in and around a phone booth. Blaine High School has just closed their production of Xanadu and has offered to give us their phone booth.
