It's always movie time! Earn money for your student's band account by selling Harkins gift cards and loyalty cups! The gift cards will be sold for $25.00 each with $2.50 going to the student's account. Cups will be sold for $5 with $1 going to the student's account. Order forms with payment are due by Nov. 1 and can be turned in to Mr. Duplessis or Emily Manning. Items will be delivered before the winter break. A voucher will be given for each cup, which can be then traded at any Harkins theatre for the 2015 loyalty cup.
We had a number of parents volunteer through the "Pick your Pleasure" form that was distributed with the Band Camp packet. Thanks! Another way to volunteer is to indicate which events and/or support roles you might be interested in via this handy on-line form. A list of the myriad tasks and events that people typically help out with is available here.
