Poinsettia & Greenery Fundraiser!

Your band student has order forms for our Poinsettia Voucher Fundraiser AND Holiday Wreath Fundraiser!! Both of these are fun and easy fundraisers. Many people look forward to the opportunity to purchase these items each year. The products are all amazing and high quality.

Al's Garden Center Poinsettia Vouchers:

The poinsettias that can be purchased with these vouchers are gorgeous!!

Orders, along with payment, are due to your band classroom by November 8th. Checks can be made out to Sherwood Band Boosters. The vouchers can be used from November 16 thru December 5th at any Al's Garden Center location.

Anna's Holiday Wreaths and Decorations:

All of the wreaths, swags, etc. are fresh, beautiful, and smell like a forest!!

Orders, along with payment are due to your band classroom by November 8. Checks can be made out to Sherwood Band Boosters. 

Wreaths and greenery will be available for pick up after school (exact time will be coming in later email) at Sherwood High School on Wednesday , November 28 so students can make deliveries in time for holiday decorating. Details about pick up time and location will be coming soon. All wreaths and swags are fresh greens, produced by a local, family owned business!

Playing Tests & Retakes

Students may retake playing tests AFTER working on items that were noted on their test papers.  I typically give feedback to students regarding what items could use improvement, or what next steps there are as they continue to progress.  As I tell my students, a retake is not about rolling the dice and seeing if you get a better score.  It is about working to improve, and then demonstrating that you have improved and have earned a better score. 

 Students have until the end of the trimester for retakes, but I would prefer that students work on the assigned skills in a timely manner, and arrange retakes within a week or so of the test if possible so that their skill level stays with where the class should be.
