Hello band families!
IT HAS COME TO OUR ATTENTION THAT STUDENTS IN GUARD AND MARCHING BAND BUT NOT IN CLASS BAND HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED THEIR FRUIT AND NUT FUNDRAISER PACKETS!
IF YOUR CHILD IS ONE OF THESE STUDENTS, THEY WILL RECEIVE THEIR PACKET ON SATURDAY WHEN THEY COME TO SCHOOL FOR THE CARY BAND DAY COMPETITION. PLEASE ASK THEM FOR THIS INFORMATION!
THE ORIGINAL ORDER DUE DATE WAS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13TH. GIVEN THAT YOUR STUDENTS RECEIVED THEIR INFORMATION A LITTLE LATER, FEEL FREE TO TAKE A COUPLE OF EXTRA DAYS TO ALLOW THEM TO GET THEIR SALES. HOWEVER, WE MUST HAVE ALL ORDERS IN BY FRIDAY THE 16TH (BBQ DAY). BELOW IS THE INFORMATION THAT WENT OUT WHEN THE PACKETS WERE FIRST DISTRIBUTED. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DON’T HESITATE TO EMAIL US. THANKS!
Students received their Fruit and Nut Fundraiser packets in band class on Monday. Students in guard and marching band who are not currently in a band class will receive their packets at rehearsal on Tuesday. Please ask your students to show you this information, as it tells you everything you need to know about this fundraiser. Here are some highlights:
This fundraiser benefits both the general fund and individual accounts.
Students will be credited $5 for every box of fruit sold, $2 per bag of fruit, and $1-$2 for each nut item.
In past years, students have earned anywhere from $5 to $100 for their band accounts!
New this year! We’ve added Dewey’s Bakery products. Students receive $2 for each of these items. These pair well with the fruit and nut items and make a great addition to this sale. Consider these yummy combinations for gifts, holiday parties, and snacking…
Clementines + Moravian Ginger Spice Cookies
Apple/Pear Combo Box + Cheese Straws
Navel Oranges + Butter Toffee Peanuts + Moravian Sugar Cake
Chocolate Nut Gift Pack + Moravian Sugar Cookies
Also new- 10lb navel oranges will come in a reusable cotton mesh bag, and a 10lb bag of grapefruit is available for pre-order!
Orders are due Tuesday, November 13th. Place all order forms and payment in the small envelope, place that in the big envelope and return.
Checks preferred- make payable to ADHS Band Boosters.
Delivery Day is Friday, December 7th. Students will pick up their orders after school and deliver to customers ASAP.
