It's almost time for our 2022 Spring Gala! If you didn't know, this is our biggest fundraiser of the year! Our goal is to replace our Drumline Equipment, so it's all hands on deck!
Today students firmed up their raffle basket themes. I'll include the list below to help keep families informed! We talked with students about getting creative and filling their baskets as a team with $5-$10 items. It's a tight turn around, but we would like to have items by this Wednesday, March 30. I will make it work out if a few items show up late ;)
Along with the Sectional Theme Raffle Baskets, we will also have a 50/50 Cash Raffle, Gift Cards, a Bake Sale, and a Weber Grill to raffle off!
Please check the Sign-up Genius
and consider signing up to donate a bake sale item, bottled water, a gift card, or your time! We are still in need of support in every area!

Flutes - Movie/Game Night (i.e. microwave popcorn, card games, board games, theatre gift cards, etc.)
