3) Orlando/Disney Trip Payment Due (Tomorrow - Thursday Oct 27)
The second payment for the Orlando/Disney Trip is due this Thursday, October 27. This payment is $300.
Parents of students should make their check payable to Warren Township High School or WTHS (with your student's name in Memo area). Please put check in an envelop, and bring it to the fee office at either campus. At O'Plaine, this is in the main office with Karen Efsen. At Almond, this is at a window across from the Principal's office with Rina Satkiewicz. Students simply need to state their payment is for the Orlando Band trip. They should make sure to receive and keep their payment receipt just in case. Please contact Mr. Jenkins or your student's director if you cannot submit your second payment tomorrow or Friday.
For more information, please visit our trip page at http://www.wthsbands.org/disneytrip2017.html.
Chaperones: You should have been contacted via email in the past week if you were chosen. Your first payment is due this Friday, October 28. This initial payment to reserve your spot is a $200 non-refundable deposit. Please follow the same procedure above for student's payment (check payable to Warren Township High School or WTHS, except put your name in the Memo area). If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Jenkins.
4) Warren Band Booster Craft Fair (This Saturday - Oct 29)
Date: Saturday Oct 29
Time: 9 AM until 3 PM
Location: WTHS Almond campus
Tell your family, friends and neighbors to begin their holiday shopping at our biggest fundraiser.
5) Craft Fair Volunteers Still Needed (Reminder)
Our Craft Fair on Saturday, October 29th is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need your help! Here is the volunteer signup:
There are still options for parents and students alike to help us and have fun doing it. Select a position and shift and add any comments/questions. There are a variety of shifts—you can even work a number of shifts doing something different each shift. If you have no preference, you can choose the “Whatever is Needed” role. Please use this form even if you are only able to bake goods to be sold at the Craft Fair.
There are some shifts that appear to be favorites and fill up quickly. All will be filled on a first come first serve basis, so if you want to volunteer for something with your friends, make sure you sign up sooner rather than later.
If you have any questions regarding the positions or the event itself, please contact Jane Haynes via email at email@example.com.
