Winter Showcase Tickets, Scrip, and Thanks!

1. Winter Showcase Tickets...important

Online ticket sales for the winter concert will open on Wednesday, 11/26/14. In an attempt to find space for this exciting event, we have added a third night! The concert is December 8, 9, and 10 at 7pm.  All students will be performing all nights. The ticketing is new for this concert so please read this entire e-mail.

All attendees must reserve a ticket. The middle section is $10 per seat and the side sections are free but must still go through the online ticketing system to reserve seats and print tickets.

We understand that you are your student’s biggest fan, but this is a very popular event so we ask that you only reserve the seats you will use and only attend one night. All three nights will be available for live stream at home through HRTV.

There will be approximately 50 free tickets available the nights of concert on a first come, first served basis. The box office will open at 6:15 each night.

To purchase tickets, please visit showtix4you by clicking on the following link. Note, you may have to copy and paste it to your web browser.  Please print your tickets before your arrival on concert night.

Should you have any questions or concerns about ticketing, please e-mail our lovely performing arts secretary, Jayne Copland.

2. Scrip order Due December 3

With the Scrip program, families can earn for their student’s orchestra fee and account while they shop. Use scrip gift cards for everyday purchases, and earn a rebate on each one at no additional cost. Each retailer in the program has a predetermined percentage (for example Chili’s might have a rebate of 10% on their gift card while Walmart might have 2%). The only downside is that you have to pay for the gift card(s) in advance and so you need to plan ahead and pay ahead.

This will be our big holiday order, many families do most of their shopping for friend and family wthrough scrip so that they can fundraise while purchaseing gifts. Orders are due Wedensday December 3. They should arrive back to school between the 10th and 13th depending on shipping.

Contact Laurie Vogel for more information or details or how to order.

Butter Braids, and Cookie Dough

Butter Braids started this week!

All orchestra students have order forms to sell butterbraids to cover the orchestra fee and help fundraise any additional orchestra expenses including the Florida Trip in March. Each braid is sold for $12 and the student receives $5. Order forms are due Next week Wednesday (November 19) and deliveries will be made Monday November 24th.

Soft Copy of the order form.

Those families and students that sold Cookie Dough...

Cookie dough will be delivered on Friday, November 21st sometime between 10 an 2. It will most definitely be available for pick up at the end of the school day. Students who sold a little- can you make arrangements to stop by after school that day? Set a reminder in your phone.
Parents of students who sold a lot- can you make arrangements to pick up on the 21st? All cookie dough must go into freezers 6-8 hours after removed from thermal wrapping. I am hoping to keep the thermal wrapping on for most of the school day on Friday.

Thank you for your support!
Have a great weekend!
