FAQs on HOMECOMING MUMS
WHO ARE MUMS FOR?
Traditional mums - Buy a traditional mum for a date, a friend, a mom, grandmother or aunt. A traditional mum is up to 32” long, with a big white flower, and lots of ribbons and trinkets. The girls wear them pinned to their shoulder or to a belt loop.
Double & Super sized mums - Same as the above, just more of it! A double has two flowers, a super size has a large 9 inch flower and both have more trinkets and more ribbon - we live in Texas so bigger is better!
Armbands - Senior girls buy these for their football players, girls also buy these for their dates and boyfriends, or anyone can buy one for a male friend, teacher, and relative
WHO BUYS MUMS?
Anyone can buy a mum; boys will buy a mum for a girlfriend and for a homecoming dance date; friends can buy each other mums, parents buy them for daughters (armbands for sons)
WHEN DO YOU ORDER A MUM?
You can order a mum prior to the homecoming game on Friday, October 21st, 2016. All orders must be received by 5 PM on October 17, 2016. If you order your mum prior to September 10th, 2016, you can get a discount!
HOW DO YOU ORDER A MUM?
Order directly from the WHS website and pay by credit card, get a form from room 341 to fill out and bring the form and your check/cash to room 341 during school hours or mail it to WHS-Mums, 4100 Westbank Dr. Austin, TX 78746. All orders must be in by October 14th, 2016.
WHERE AND WHEN DO YOU PICK UP THE MUM?
Room 341; Pick the mum up the week of the homecoming game, and no later than the Thursday before the game. That gives you time to present your mum to the wearer before or on Friday morning! Also, if there happens to be a problem, it gives us time to fix it!
WHY DO THE MUMS LOOK A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER?
Mums are personalized to reflect the wearer; their name is put on one of the ribbons and other ribbons and trinkets (jewelry!) are added that are personal to that person’s activities and grade level.
WHEN DO YOU WEAR THE MUM?
Everyone wears their mum to school on the day of the homecoming game. Some wear them to the game, some do not.
WHY SHOULD YOU ORDER A MUM FROM THE “MUM MOMS”?
The mum moms are a committee of the WHS PTO, and all of the profits from our mum sales go straight back into the PTO and WHS. Our prices are much better than other sellers and cheaper than you can make on your own!
CAN YOU BE A “MUM MOM”?
We welcome all volunteers in the mum room! You don’t need any special skills, and there’s always work to be done and conversation to be had. Come by the mum room 341, or call Kathy Elswick at 512-431-8486.
