This is an excellent deal for soda drinkers–only 83 cents a bottle!
Checks should be made out to “RSD.” Students must turn the money in to the school bookkeeper and staple the receipt to the form before submitting it.
The pop will arrive in early- to mid-February. We need lots of strong backs and hand trucks to arrange it on the day/evening that it arrives, then distribute it to cars the next day. An email will go out when the dates are firmed up.
For more information, or to volunteer to help, contact Dawn and Don Salyer. Email to email@example.com or text 205-7005.

Letter from Mr Swisher
This letter serves to bring you updates to the HHS band calendar due to recent changes to the concert schedule. The concert previously scheduled for November 18th featuring the HHS Wind Ensemble and HHS Orchestra will be joined with the HHS Concert Band and Symphonic Band Concert on November 25th. We apologize for the change in our calendar this late in the season, however, were notified just recently of a conflict in the auditorium which necessitates our change.
Richland School District (RSD) facilities may be rented by “outside” organizations once RSD events are scheduled for the year. An outside organization has rented the HHS Auditorium throughout the month of November. They are running a large scale musical production with large sets and a full pit orchestra. This requires them to have the pit cover off. The organization did schedule their events around our concert calendar and facilities reservations, but no one foresaw their enormous sets being on stage or the pit being uncovered. It will be impossible for us to perform a concert in the HHS auditorium with the sets on stage and the pit uncovered.
Unfortunately, we were notified of this outside organization’s rental too late and were unable to make any changes. Therefore, Mr. Newbury and I, with the assistance of Mr. Leggett and HHS administration, have decided that it is in the best interest of our program to join our two concerts in one evening. The concert on November 25th will feature all four of our large performing ensembles (Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, and Orchestra) who will play their full set of literature.
We realize that this may cause our families to have scheduling difficulties, but sincerely apologize. Mr. Leggett and the HHS Music Staff have devised a plan to help ensure this does not happen in the future. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact me via email at Kevin.firstname.lastname@example.org.
