Help fill Wyoming streets with art! On August 28-29 we will be having a Street Chalk Art Exhibition during the Beer Wine Food Festival benefitting The Cure Starts Now. The festival is held in honor of former Wyoming student Elena Desserich who lost her battle with brain cancer in 2007 . In honor of Elena, we welcome students from Wyoming to come and fill in a 1×1 square of our chalk patchwork quilt. After school on Friday, August 28 students can come to the corner of Wyoming and Grove (near the Wyoming Florist) and check- in at the tent. All students participating will receive a coupon for a free Chip Wheelie that can be redeemed at the festival. Parents can come to see the masterpiece. See you there!
Wyoming Athletic Booster Cards – This year the boosters are going to distribute as many passes as possible before the first football game in hopes of eliminating the back-up at the gate. Passes will be available for pick-up and purchase today, August 25 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and Thursday, August 27 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the entrance to the football stadium. Parents may allow their children to pick up passes as long as they can be identified. After these evenings, passes will be dropped off at individual residences or be available for pick-up at the first home football game on September 4.

WSMA: Wyoming School Music Association (a/k/a music boosters)
It’s time to sign up to sell the ever-popular chip wheelies and help WSMA raise money to support the music programs in our schools from Kindergarten through High School. If you have an hour or two to volunteer, we can use your help.
WSMA sells Graeter’s Chip Wheelies at home football games and all the school concerts. These ice cream sandwiches are a huge favorite with the kids (and adults). It’s easy!! We handle the ordering and delivery of Chip Wheelies to a special freezer at the High School. We’ll supply you with signage, a cash box, and instructions. It’s a short time commitment. If you have younger kids who want to attend the football game, you’ll have a good excuse for being there. Concert sales only take about an hour of time. If you are interested in volunteering, the link is: http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/30E0949A5AA2EA75-chip
Thanks for supporting our student musicians through WSMA! More information on WSMA can be found at http://www.wyomingmusic.org

A few notes for those interested in auditioning:
Rehearsals will be from 4:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. Monday – Thursday and Fridays from 3:20 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (not everyone will be needed every day, but conflicts must be kept to a minimum).
- If a student cannot attend all of Tech Week Rehearsals (October 12-15, 4:00 p.m.- 7:30 p.m.) or one of the shows (October 15 and 16, 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.), please do NOT audition as the student will not be cast.
- If a student is playing a fall sport, they may audition, but they will NOT be considered for a lead role. There are simply too many conflicts to successfully do both, but the directors want these students to have to option to be involved in some way.
- Those that sign up to audition will need to sing a song (read sign up for specifics), read from the script, AND bring a completed and signed audition form. Use this google documents link to print your own form. A parent MUST sign the form.
