Marching Band Car Wash

HSHS Marching Band Car Wash Flyer

This Saturday, August 10th, the HSHS Marching Battalion will be having our annual car wash in the Driver’s Ed Parking lot. Proceeds from our car washes usually go towards offsetting overhead costs of band such as instrument repair and uniform replacement. This year we are specifically using funds for our travel to NC to follow the football team for our VICTORY over Page High School in Greensboro. Hopefully we will not have to charge the students anything for this trip. If you are free, please consider supporting the car wash. It’s $7 for cars and $10 for trucks. Students are currently selling pre-sale tickets for $5 for ANY vehicle.

Beat the “Summer Slide”

Summer slide isn’t a piece of playground equipment – it’s the tendency for students to lose some of the progress they’ve made during the academic year. But there are ways to keep your students’ skills sharp and have fun all summer long.

For details, resources and lots more ways to foster reading this summer, go to HCPS’ summer reading page.
