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!

Start your holiday shopping now!

Hi everyone,
Here is the order form for the holiday scrip order.  Mr. Woodworth has forms, as well.
The orders are due back to Mr. Woodworth or Deb Stilwell by Nov. 29, along with payment; it will take about a week to get the cards in.  We will distribute them to the students or email the parents that they're in -- whichever they prefer.  
It's an easy fundraiser for the students.  The scrip company will pay Boosters the total of all the rebates, then, from there, they will be posted to the individual students’ accounts.  Besides those listed on the form, there are hundreds of other retailers available.  There is a link to GL Scr​​ip on the order form.

You can start the season feeling good knowing that your early holiday shopping also benefits our Orchestras.  Please contact Deb Stilwell if you have any questions.
