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
VARSITY SENIOR GIRLS MUMS:
These are only for the varsity Football
player moms to order for their son’s Senior Girl (secret Pal). Please include
the player’s football number so it can be a part of the mum. **There is a mum for just senior grade level
girls that is different and does not include a football number. So check to make sure you ordered the correct
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 until September 15,
2017. Anything ordered after that date will have to go directly through the mum
chair to assure there are enough supplies to accommodate that order. There is also a late fee applied. (All late orders are cash only and must be
paid prior to the order)
HOW DO YOU ORDER A MUM?
Order directly from the WHS website and pay by credit card. All orders must be in by September 15th, 2017.
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. So before you order a mum, know your persons activities; especially what
instrument they play, kind of dance they do, or any special things you might
like to see and we will see if we can fulfill that request.
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.
Don't forget to donate to our No Hassle Fundraiser! 100% of the funds stay on campus to support our staff and students through supplies, equipment and more!
