Attention Please, all those of you who use the Mello Center for public performances. This is the time of the year when I must make up a calendar of all WHS and District events that will be happening in the Mello Center next school year and submit it to the powers that be for approval. You need to talk with me and submit paperwork by Dec. 21. This is important because we (WHS and the District) have first choice of the days we would like to use. When I am finished with the calendar I submit it to the PVPAA and they get second choice of the days that they would like to have. When they deliver the calendar back to me we have the OFFICIAL Mello Calendar. Getting evenings and performance times after that is on a first come first served basis.

It is in our best interest to take a few minutes and call me to arrange for next year.
