Booster meeting Tuesday

The boosters will be meeting this Tuesday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. in the HRHS Orchestra room.  If you are a parent or guardian, you are a booster!  It's not just the board members; we need everyone's help and input!
We will be discussing the upcoming concerts, end-of-year banquet, and next year's board member positions.  If you haven't attended a meeting, I highly encourage you to come.  We still need a lot of help to finish off this year with a bang!  It's been a great year, and we want to keep the momentum going. 
Also, have you been using your King Sooper cards?  This is the easiest way to contribute to your child's student fees.  They can also be used all summer to add to next year's fees.  Don't forget them!  If you don't have one yet, contact Deb, and she'll get you set up.

Gift card donations requested

Do you happen to have extra gift certificates sitting around that you haven’t used? Does someone at work keep giving you Starbucks, Dairy Queen, Cold Stone Creamery, or other gift cards?  You take them and say “thank you,” but it’s not your cup of tea.  You hold on to them, but wonder when you’ll ever use them.  Well, have we got a solution to your problem!  
We are asking for gift cards to any variety of businesses to use as thank you gifts for teachers, section coaches, and others.  We only ask that they be new, at least $10 in value, and free of any personalization.  Please feel free to send them in with your students to class (if you think it’s safe! Ha ha!). As always, please feel free to email Sandra or Mr. Woodworth if you have any questions.  Thanks for helping us, and lightening your wallet’s load.

A new Mark Wood video

Hello everyone!

We wanted to share this video from Douglas County School District on our Mark Wood visit.  It's great fun to watch him in class with the kids!  Be sure to watch the Channel 9 video also in our blog.
One more thing:  Don't forget to check the calendar on the website as we have several Winter Showcase rehearsal and performance dates coming up quickly!
If we don't chat again before Thanksgiving break, have a wonderful, safe holiday with your loved ones.  We are very thankful for your continued support for our Boosters and our students!
