Directors' Notes! Stuart.Tankesley@hsv-k12.org & Holly.Connell@hsv.k12.org
I wanted to take a second and thank you for your support so far this year and particularly at our concert this week. We couldn't do this without your support of the program and your kids. We also couldn't do this without a terrific booster club and our administration at HHS who has helped us out many times this year!
We have kicked off our bed sheet fundraiser!! If you did not receive a packet on Thursday, please let Mrs. Connell know and she will get you one in class this week. We want to emphasize that these fundraisers are crucial for us particularly this year! Social media is always a great place to advertise our fundraisers (and most of the time makes it easier on you!).
Last - I have a little bit of bad news to share. I tested positive for COVID this weekend. I will be quarantined until November 17th. HCS and public health guidance currently states that anyone a COVID patient was around 48 hours prior to exhibiting symptoms at a distance of less than 6 feet for more than a combined 15 minutes in a 24-hour period should quarantine. The concert Thursday night fits during this 48-hour time frame. While I was around many people Thursday night, I believe very few people fit the 6 ft / 15 minute rule. Based on how we set things up for band class, how the concert was set up, and reviewing all my conversations from this week, I believe there are no students that fit the 6/15 rule. However, if your student believes otherwise, please contact me ASAP.
Our Simply Sheets fundraiser has begun!
If you didn’t get a sales packet at Thursday’s concert, please have your student pick one up in band class this week. Packets include an order form, a color chart, and sample swatches.
These premium sheets, towels, and pillows come in a range of sizes (including XL Twin sheets to fit dorm room beds) and make great holiday gifts. Each set is $40, and shipping is included.
Online ordering is also available for your out-of-town family and friends, for a price of $49.50 per set (but the band gets less profit from this option). See your sales packet for details.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will directly benefit the band. Any student who sells at least 12 sets of sheets, towels, or a combination of both will receive their choice of a free $10 VISA gift card or a free set of sheets/towels!
All order forms and checks (made out to HHS Band) are due in the band box by December 1, 2020 to guarantee delivery in time for the holidays. Please put your forms and checks in an envelope labeled Simply Sheets and your student’s name.
Contact Elena Barbre at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if you need an alternate drop-off location.
Thank you for your support of the band!
