November and December 2019 - news and updates

Citrus Delivery! - Monday!!!!
If all goes as planned, the Hellgate citrus order will be arriving in Missoula early Monday morning. Period 3 will be doing the honors of unloading the truck!  PLEASE dress warm (coat, hat and GLOVES) and be ready to work out, baby!! (Period 4 kiddos -  be prepared in case we don't get it all done).  We have several parents volunteering their time on Monday  - THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!!
All band families need to make plans to get their fruit delivered on Monday afternoon/evening.  We need ALL fruit orders out of the building by 6:00 PM on
 
Monday, December 9
If we have extra fruit, it will be available for sale on a first come first served basis.
Citrus Sale pick-up process:
  • Come to the band hallway. Find the BAND fruit. There will also be Orchestra fruit and Choir fruit. You must take your order from the BAND stacks.
  • Check-in with the parent volunteers at the table and get your order form.
  • Go to the BAND stacks and pull out the number of boxes you need.
  • After you've pulled aside your order, inventory your order for any damaged fruit. Replace as necessary from the boxes set aside for that purpose.
  • When you've collected and inventoried your order, find a CHECKOUT person (band parent) and CHECKOUTPlease make sure you double check your order!  Check out folks will check you off the citrus spreadsheet. You would be surprised how many people accidentally take the wrong item (and then have to return/exchange). Please take the time to check out with a parent monitor.
  • There will be several hand trucks around to aid with taking your order to your vehicle. You can park at either hallway entrance but please be careful not to block other vehicles.
