HOLIDAY CRAFT SHOW
The Holiday Craft Show is THIS SATURDAY, November 23rd! Sign ups for volunteers have been posted (please see below). We do request that every student and at least one additional family member sign up to work a shift at the Craft Show. The Craft Show benefits the general band funds - and we need everyone to continue to make it the tremendous success it has been in the past. Plus, if you work the craft show, you can shop before or after your shift with free admission! Students can also count these hours towards any volunteer requirements, just have them see Maura or Lisa on show day for signatures for their volunteer hours. There are lots of different types of needs, from donating cookies, to helping vendors, to working concessions. Each year the most positive feedback about our show has been how awesome our volunteers are - please help us continue this tradition! The following links are where we still need help!

Butter braids will make a wonderful breakfast for your holiday guests! Remember that each Butter Braid your student sells earns funds for their personal band account & the overall band account! Please check out all the details HERE.
