It’s hard to believe we’re already in the
midst of the holiday season. Hope you all
have a wonderful Thanksgiving! The
Zelienople Christmas Parade and Winter
Concerts will certainly help to put us all in
the holiday spirit!
By January 1, all students who are
planning to go on the trip to the Azalea
Festival/NATO Parade of Nations should
have half the funds required in their trip
account. Please be prompt with your
payment so we can meet our due date
with the travel agency.
Congratulations to all of the students who
were chosen for the PMEA Honors Band.
The large number of musicians who were
selected from our school shows what an
excellent band program we have! See the
article later in this newsletter from the
I would also like to thank all of the
Concession and Chaperone volunteers who
worked so hard during the football games
over this past season. I encourage all
Booster parents to get involved. Your
support is much needed and greatly

We had another successful Mattress

of your efforts to contact family and
friends to encourage them to attend.
A special thank you goes out to:
**Our Band Directors for all of their time
and efforts to publicize the sale and offer
**Several Key Club members at Seneca
for volunteering to wear mattress
costumes during a home football game;
**All of the student and parent volunteers
who came out the day of the sale to increase
**The Rodriguez Family for painting the sign
located on the Zelienople sign board;
**The Jackson Family for picking the sign up
and delivering it as needed;
**Anyone that I may be missing that offered
time and assistance to help get the word out
about the sale – thank you for your help!!
Thanks to all who participated in the Enjoy
Coupon Book sale. Many students were able
to earn significant funds towards their band
trip. The Boosters sponsored a contest for the
top two sellers who each won $25.00 for their
achievements. Tabby Laine sold 16 books
followed closely by Sammi Logan with 15
books sold. Congratulations girls on a great
Mattress Fundraiser Thank You!
Thanks to all of the chaperone helpers this
past season!! It was a great season and
appeared like we might have been playing
even later into November. But, like always, it
came to an end. It was wonderful to see a lot
of new faces and welcome back many of the
old (I mean parents who've helped in previous
years). I appreciated having as many volun-
teers as I did, and all of you did a great job in
keeping things run smoothly!
