WEEK OF AUGUST 12th Update:

PARENT PREVIEW is on Tuesday August 20th Parent Preview @ the Wolvarena ALL STUDENTS SHOULD REPORT DIRECTLY TO THE WOLVARENA at 6:00 pm. Parent Preview will start at 7pm when football team is finished with their practice. There will be a Band Booster meeting directly before the Preview. It is extremely important that all parents attend this meeting!  😊


New Volunteer Requests!  Our Marching Band and Images could also use 4-6 Parent Volunteers for Our Kennywood Day.  Our Vice President will also be reserving on of Kenny's, Kabana (near Noah's Ark in the center of the park) for people to stop by, leave items if needed, and meet up with other band families.  Watching the parade from the main cafeteria with the large wraparound porch is also a great place to see our students march!  

See The Band Score website’s volunteer page to click the Bring It section to sign up!

NEW FUNDRAISER
Wendy Fletcher has generously agreed to run the Boon Supply/Mixed Bag fundraiser from August 20-September 20.  The plan is to receive the catalogs in time to distribute at the Tuesday, August 20th Parent Preview.  More details to come!
 

URGENT CALL for VOLUNTEERS to get trained and fill slots of the WHHSBPO Concession Stand!
We are already having difficulty filling our Heinz Field Concession Stand and it is very possible that our Woody High stand could be in jeopardy.  This is often the easiest way to raise fast funds for your student’s trip (pay out is usually $90 and above per event).
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get your training documents (RAMP is you are new, and the annual documents if you took it a year ago and it hasn’t expired).  Details are here: 

http://www.whhsband.com/fundraising


We need SEVERAL VOLUNTEERS for all upcoming games.  Please sign up and contact Camille Malecki asap at 412-401-4642 (preferred) or email at whbpo.heinzcoordinator@gmail.com  Sign Up here:  BringIt
 

Band lottery calendars are now available for next year. They are $20 each and band members earn $6 for every calendar sold.  Each calendar enables players (purchasers) to win if their number matches the Pennsylvania Lottery Evening Pick 3 Number on a given day. If the player's number is drawn Monday through Saturday, they win $20; if their number hits on a Sunday, they win $50; and if their number hits on the specific holiday per month, they win $100. Numbers are distributed randomly. As a seller, you do not have to pay for calendars up front. Just return any unsold calendars to the chairperson before the end of the calendar year. Turn player information stubs and checks made out to WHHS BPO for sold calendars in to the chairperson, Mary Conti by phone at (412) 867-6818 or e-mail at cookwithmaryconti@yahoo.com, or ask Mr. Hopkins.
