"Hello, my name is Jenna Hartwick!  I'm a senior here at Spaulding This Saturday, May 20th, I am shaving my head for cancer awareness, specifically children. I just wanted to spread the word as much as possible! No pressure, but if you would like to donate to the cause please do so before 
12:15 pm on Saturday May 20th
, which is when I will be participating in the event! Also, the only way to donate is online by way of the link below. If anyone is unable to do this then that is totally fine! Again, just trying to spread the word. Thank you."

ONLINE COMMUNICATION REMINDER

STUDENTS:
Please, be extra careful when you are communicating with people via email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Sometimes what we say online can be misinterpreted when there is no facial expression or body language present to reinforce our meaning. Emojis and emoticons only do part of that job for us. 

Poorly worded messages can hurt feelings and get unsubstantiated rumors started.


 EQUIPMENT CARE REMINDER
STUDENTS: We have spent an extreme amount of money for the resources we use on a daily basis. This includes instruments, music, electronics, infrastructure, etc. For example, the drumline battery cost us over $15,000, tubas cost $4,000/each, baritone horns $1,800, French horns $1,500, Baritone Saxophones $3,000 ... and the list goes on!

We cannot afford to be careless with all of the wonderful things we have worked to own!

Please be gentle and careful with the equipment and our area. Pick up after yourselves and make the space cleaner for the next person. Always put instruments in cases and lockers when not in use. Make the area presentable for guests.

We are fortunate that we have this space and equipment to share, DON’T ABUSE THE PRIVILEGE, or you will LOSE IT!
