Fall Raffle Fundraiser
Our Fall Raffle fundraiser has begun! Tickets are $10 each and offers you the chance to win various prizes including a $250 Amazon Gift Card, a $100 Amazon Gift Card, $50 local restaurant gift cards, Disneyland tickets, and more!!
Each student was given 10 tickets to begin with at Saturday’s rehearsal. 50% of each raffle ticket sold will be credited to that student’s individual family donation account, and 50% will go toward the general fund.
When a ticket is sold, the person buying the ticket will complete their name, phone, and email on the right side, tear that piece off (the ticket stub) and give that back to the student along with their payment. The person buying the ticket will keep the left side (the larger portion) of the ticket for their records. The student should then return all tickets stubs and cash ($10 per ticket) to Gaby Ruvalcaba. Gaby will be available to collect these at the end of practice on Tuesday and Saturday nights. You can also pick up extra tickets from her at this time. If you have questions, contact Gaby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pancake Breakfast and Student Performance- Saturday September 25 9-11AM
Our pancake breakfast is coming up this Saturday and is a great fundraising opportunity for us. But we need your help in getting the word out. There will not be physical tickets sold this year. Instead, we are asking that you sign up by completing the form on our website.
Invite as many people as you can and then on the form, you can indicate your name, your student’s name and how many tickets you’re purchasing. If you completed the form once and you get more people to come, just complete the form again for the second set of people. Make sure you indicate the type of payment made and if cash or check is used, either have your student put it into the black box in the band room or bring it on Saturday morning.
Our virtual tickets are $5 each and for each ticket sold, the student identified on the form will have $3 go towards their individual family donation. The rest goes towards the general fund. It’s a win-win!
Be sure to inform those who are coming to park in the main parking lot and come through the main entrance. We will have signs directing visitors. In addition, our students will be performing music from the field show at 9:30AM. You won’t want to miss that!
And as a reminder, we will also need some parent volunteers to help make this run smoothly. Information about the event and volunteer opportunities can be found on our Annual Pancake Breakfast web page.
Parent Meeting Tuesday September 21
Our next parent meeting is this coming Tuesday September 21. We hope you’ll be able to make it, especially if you have questions about anything coming up.
As we mentioned in the previous update, we recognize that for some parents with middle schoolers, you have Back to School Night that night. We do apologize for the overlap in schedules. We will try to provide a thorough recap of the meeting for you.
Valencia Classic Field Show – October 16
Remember, we are requiring that at least one family member for each student volunteer some of their time to help. Thank you in advance for your time!
