I just wanted to touch base with you because we are kicking off our yearly Cherrydale Fundraiser. In class today, your student was given a packet that contains everything you need to know about this fundraiser; however, I do want to point out a few things.
1. The band program does not receive any monetary support from the school district. All funds that we use to purchase instruments, repair instruments, buy music, pay contest fees, operate on a daily basis, etc. are purely money that is earned via fundraising. Without this income, our program would cease to exist.
2. Order forms are due back next Friday, August 28th. Money is collected upon delivery.
3. You can sell via email! It is so easy. All you have to do is send the link to friends and family with our school code. You don't even have to deliver the items--they are shipped directly to the buyers! Please look in your student's packet for more information on how to do this.
4. If, by chance, you would rather not participate in this fundraiser, please consider giving a small tax-deductible donation to our program. As I mentioned above, the program does not receive money from the district. This program has grown leaps and bounds in the past few years, and we want it to continue to grow!
As always, thank you so much for your support and for allowing us teach your students. Our job would be next to impossible without your continued support and care. Our students are remarkable kids, and they appreciate all of the support as much as Mrs. Cartmell and I do.
