WHO ARE MUMS FOR?
Traditional Mums - Mums are traditionally purchased for female students by their HoCo date, parents, or friend. A traditional Mum is up to 32” long, with a big white flower, and lots of ribbons and trinkets. They are worn pinned to the shoulder or to a belt loop.
Double & Supersized Mums - Same as the above, just more of it! A Double has two (2) regular size flowers, a Supersize has one (1) large flower. Both have more trinkets and more ribbon, with the Supersize Mums being custom designed for the recipient.
Armbands - Traditionally purchased for male students by their HoCo date, parents, or friend. This has also become a popular choice for female students wanting a smaller Mum option. Note: other than the recipient and date's name (if applicable), there is no activity or other customization on an Armband.
WHO BUYS MUMS?
Anyone can buy a Mum; boys will buy a Mum for a girlfriend or for a homecoming dance date; friends can buy each other Mums, and parents buy them for daughters (Armbands for sons).

WHEN DO YOU ORDER A MUM?
Mums will be on sale from August 16th through Noon, September 28th (September 22nd for Double/Supersize orders), or until inventory is sold out. If you are seeing an item sold out, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if your order can be accommodated.
HOW DO YOU ORDER A MUM?
Order directly from the WHS website and pay by credit card.
WHERE AND WHEN DO YOU PICK UP THE MUM?
An email will be sent to the account that originated the order when the Mum/Armband is ready for pick-up. Students can then pick-up in Room 341, Monday - Friday 8:30AM-3:00PM (hours will be extended to 4:30PM on Wednesday, 9/27 and Thursday, 9/28).
Mums/armbands are filed under the RECEIVER/WEARER'S last name, therefore should be asked for as such, i.e.:
"I'm here to pick-up the Freshman Mum for Susie Smith"
"I'm here to pick-up the Senior Armband for Johnny Jones"
Orders will only be given to the student(s) listed for pick-up on the order form.
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 are added that are personal to that person’s activities and grade level. Before you place your order, know the recipient's school activities.
WHEN DO I GIVE MY DATE THEIR MUM?
This is a personal decision/preference. Student's should coordinate with their dates ahead of time as to when they will exchange their Mum and Armbands.
WHEN DO YOU WEAR THE MUM?
Everyone wears their Mum to school on the day of the homecoming game on Friday, September 29th. 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 I BE A “MUM MOM”?
Of course! We welcome all volunteers in the Mum Room! Plus you don’t need any special skills!
There is always work to be done and conversation to be had. Email our committee chair at email@example.com.
