- All-In One Fundraiser Kick-Off/Packet Pick-up Tomorrow: Our annual All-In-One Fruit & Meat Fundraiser kicks-off this week on Thursday, September 17th, 2015. This is one of our annual fundraisers that the Band Boosters do to provide funding for all of the supporting items that we provide for our students and band staff throughout the year. Strong participation from all parents, guardians and students in this fundraiser helps keep band fees as low as possible. So please make plans to stop by the band room this Thursday between 8:00pm and 9:00pm to pick-up your All-In-One fundraiser packet. All band/guard students will have a packet that will need to be picked up. The fundraiser will last from September 17th, 2014 until October 16th, 2014. A downloadable version of the All-In-One fundraiser packet will be available soon under the “Fundraisers” and ‘Forms” section of our website for those that cannot make it by this Thursday.
