Band Parents Meeting Recap


Giftwrap Booth

Thank you to all who made the giftwrap booth a success. We made about $7,000. Post expenses, such as after Christmas discounted wrapping paper and supplies, the band profited about $6,000. We had a discussion on what worked well and what we could improve for next year. If you have any ideas you would like to add to either list, please contact Miss Warshany

What Worked Well

  • Sign Up Genius was helpful to see what shifts were open and which were not.
  • We had just the right amount of supplies.
  • Email/text reminders were helpful.

What We Could Improve

  • Requiring each student have a family member as an approved chaperone
  • Have a set up/break down how-to in the booth for new volunteers
  • Reviewing the mall contract and providing a copy in the booth so all know mall specific rules and regulations
  • Looking into getting a lock box or drop box for money deposits throughout the day
  • Looking into negotiating a new spot for the gift wrap booth

We also discussed changing the gift wrap chair into a 3-4 person gift wrap committee to lessen the burden. If you are interested in working on the committee, please contact Miss Warshany.

My Music Office

My Music Office is finally set up to view student finances. There are many features to this subscription that we will implement in the future. The finance option will allow you to view any money in your student's account. We will be using this feature in the upcoming years to keep track of band fees. First, check your username by going here. All passwords are set as pslband and can be changed once you log in. Then, visit and follow the steps below.

If you believe there are any discrepancies, please contact Miss Warshany as soon as possible. I will also be looking for help in inputting information around times money is charged/collected(band fees, fundraisers, etc.)
