As we settle into the week, the Band Boosters wanted to announce a few important dates and ways that we can all work together to support our band program.
All-In-One sale kick off!
Thursday, September 21!!!
It is time to begin our All in One sale!! This is a long standing, and always highly anticipated fundraiser for the Carrollton High School Band! It is a fruit and meat sale, students will sell and collect money at the point of sale. Money and order sheets will be turned into the boosters and the purchaser will be responsible to pick up their order on November 17th or 18th at Tabernacle Baptist Church. This is an important fundraiser and we hope to see ALL of our students participating by selling!!! Please come to the band room THIS Thursday (9/21/17) between 7pm and 9pm to pick up your student’s packet.
Yankee Candle Fundraiser
The candles will be delivered this Thursday, September 21st! This is sooner than we had anticipated! If your student sold candles, please pick them up this Thursday evening while you pick up your All-In-One packet. Candles will be available for pick up from 7 pm – 9 pm. The recognition for our top sellers will be Monday, October 9th at the end of regularly scheduled practice.
Do you ever order from Amazon? If you do, you can order the same items on AmazonSmile for the same amount and a percentage of the purchase will be donated to the Carrollton Trojan Band Boosters.
The AmazonSmile program is a give-back program where the online retailer, Amazon, donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the Carrollton Trojan Band Boosters to support our normal operations and efforts in supporting our band. This really is a effortless way to support our band without it costing you anything extra. If you normally shop online with Amazon, you simply designate the Carrollton High School Band Boosters Club Inc. as the charitable organization that you’d like to support and that’s it… Your account will automatically be linked and then whenever you make your normal eligible purchases the band will benefit. It can’t get much easier than that to help!
To link your account, follow this link: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/58-1572206 and sign in to your Amazon account. That’s all there is to it! Share this link with your family, friends, and co-workers too so they can support us as well.
After linking your account, whenever your shopping on Amazon, make sure your shopping at smile.amazon.com and then look for the AmazonSmile logo in the upper left-hand corner of your browser window. That’s your assurance that your purchases will benefit our program! NOTE: AmazonSmile does not work with the Amazon App for mobile devices. If you commonly shop from your smartphone or mobile device you will want to place the items you want in your shopping cart via the app but then complete your checkout in a traditional web browser on your desktop, laptop, smartphone, or mobile device in order for the AmazonSmile donation to be made.
Legacy Of Champions
We need you! Did you know that volunteering at the Legacy of Champions is actually expected of all of our boosters/parents? All band students are required to work the entire day and parents/band boosters are expected to work at least one volunteer shift during the event, but highly encouraged to commit to working the whole day.
The success of our event takes the support and efforts of ALL of our parents/boosters. So please take a moment and visit our volunteer page: https://chstrojanband.com/volunteer/ and review all of the various sign-ups available for the event. We specifically need help staffing gates and ticket booths, traffic controllers, fried Oreo stand, and general volunteers. We also need volunteers willing to bring desserts, lend ATVs, golf carts, and/or equipment trailers. There is something for everyone! The most important part is to just be involved, so please take time to sign-up today! https://chstrojanband.com/volunteer/
Don’t forget to attend the LoC information/training meeting as part of the General Booster Meeting on September 28, 2017 at 6:30 in the band room!
As always, if you have any questions about any of these items, please make sure to contact the Band Boosters at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
