The White Mail BoxThe White Mailbox is your friend. The White Mailbox will keep you out of trouble. You will often hear your directors tell you to "Put it in the White Mailbox". The White Mailbox is in the large band room near the door to the directors' office.  It's the one that's painted white.  Here is why the White Mailbox is your friend.
