Valentine’s Day Fundraiser

Good day Spartan Band Members and Supporters

We have a Valentine’s Day ❤️candy gram fundraiser in progress at the school. We will have a table set up during lunch to collect money for candy grams that the students can send to other students. The price options are $1.00, $3.00 and $10.00. Candy grams will be delivered on February 14th.

So far we have made $50.00 in sales but we really really need volunteers to help man the table with Shannon Wright from 10:45 to 12:45 on Thursday and Friday of this week and Monday thru Friday of next week. Any help is greatly appreciated. Please contact Shannon at 615-556-7384 if you are able to help.
