Our recent fundraiser’s candles and chocolate has come in. We will begin distributing them to students tomorrow during class. It is their responsibility to deliver them to the appropriate people. There may also be extra chocolate bunnies and almonds, so please let us know if you may be interested in purchasing them.
Today, the Fivay High School Band Program began it’s K.I.S.S. (Keep it Simply Soy) Candle fundraiser. Every candle being sold costs $12.00 and comes in 18 different scents. Every candle is made from soy, burns for 65 hours or more, and the profit goes directly into your student band accounts. For every candle sold, $5.00 will be placed in your student account, that can be used to purchase supplies (reeds, oil, grease, etc…), band shoes, band shirt, your Lakeside Jazz trip, band banquet, etc… The money can even be applied towards your costs for next school year. Remember, this fundraiser is only as successful as you make it!
This fundraiser will close on March 4, 2011. All money and order forms need to be returned on or by March 4, 2011.
The Fivay High School Jazz Ensemble has been tentatively approved to attend and perform at the Lakeside Jazz Festival, which takes place in Port Orange, FL. Our trip has been approved thus far, and is currently pending approval from the Pasco County School Board (on February 15, 2011). That being said, we have been given permission to start accepting money to pay for our trip. The trip cost will be $100.00 per person (including chaperones). This cost is used to cover our hotel, transportation, festival entry fee, etc…. Please, make every effort to have this paid by April 1, 2011. You can pay it in full, in monthly payments, or through our upcoming fundraiser (which begins on February 22, 2011). As we get closer to our trip, there will be a trip meeting to go over the trip handbook and to answer any questions.
Starting today, we will be beginning our newest fundraiser.
