The music department is kicking off the annual fall fundraiser today! Sales packets are coming home with your students today. Here is the letter that comes home in your packet:
Fairbanks Music Department's Annual
Sale begins: Thursday, September 15
Sheets and money are due: Monday, September 26
Delivery: Tuesday, October 25
Dear Musicians and Parents,
The Fairbanks Music Department is the largest department in the school, serving over 220 students in eight grades. It takes money to support our musical efforts, and student-raised money is a substantial part of that. Our goal this year is to raise $5000 from this sale. This is the ONLY fundraiser for the music department as a whole this entire school year. This money is used for items like music, supplies, repairs, transportation, instruments, rewards, uniforms/apparel, and many other day-to-day expenses. It is asked that all members of the music department help in this important fundraising event.
Students are asked to sell 10 items from the sales brochure, and are rewarded with cash on many different levels, including a day off pizza and movie party for sections of each group who sell the most per person!
If your family chooses not to sell, we respect your decision, but would kindly ask for at least a $25 tax-deductible donation in lieu of selling. Donations, however, do not count towards cash prizes. Donations DO count toward the section battles as 1 item for every $5 of donations. (e.g. $25 donation = 5 items)
Cash awards:10 items: $5. 20 items: $15. 30 items: $50. 50 items: $100
I would like to state again, that these funds benefit ALL students in the music department. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Keller at (937) 243-2031 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
