WMPA Newsletter 11-14

Hello all! 

We will not be having a band parent meeting in December.  Our next meeting will be Tuesday January 9th at 6pm in the HS cafeteria.  Since there's not a whole lot to cover I'll be sending out the newsletter periodically, like once a month.  Also, thank you to the Whitehall Fire Department for their warm welcome home from Championships with our win!  Wonderful to see the community support. 

THIS SATURDAY!  Panera give back night is this Saturday from 4pm - 8pm.  MUST have the attached certificate with you.  Can be printed OR on mobile.  Works inside and at the drive through! 

INDOOR SNACKSTAND:  As we've shared, the outdoor snack stand pays for the staff salaries.  In order to keep ownership (and all profits) of that outdoor stand we need to help man the indoor snack stand during Basketball season.  We are responsible for the 2nd half of all home boys AND girls basketball games, typically January through March in the evenings.  A schedule will come out soon.  Since we traditionally have trouble getting volunteers for this the WMPA is offering $5.00 per person per shift to your Student Account. We typically need 2-3 people and as long as we have 1 adult we can also have high school aged students work it.  If they need volunteer hours we can hook them up! More info to follow as we are updated by the athletic department.

SPRING TRIP:
Thank you to our Melissa and Monica for planning this years trip on Saturday April 27th.  Looks like a fun time!  This is optional and parents who have clearances are allowed to go as well.  No student siblings though (district rules, not ours).  Please keep a look out for reminders on when the next payment is due. 

END OF THE YEAR BANQUET:  Set for the next day, Sunday April 28th.  More information will follow as it gets closer.
