Chick-fil-A Fundraiser

CF_Banner

Hello Everyone,

We have started the Chick-fil-A 2018 Cow Calendar fundraiser.  Funds that individuals earn will go into their student account.  Calendars are being pre-sold at $10 each (cash only) with $5 profit going to the student account.  The calendar features a card which when activated and swiped at the store allows you to have 1 free item a month.  The calendar has over $30 worth of food in it.  The deadline for all money and orders is October 16th and calendars will be delivered around the week of October 16th and 23rd.
A flyer and order form which include all of the details about the fundraiser and the deadline can be found here.
Sincerely,
WSHS Band Booster Officers

Car Wash Update and August 5th Car Wash Reminder

Greetings Spartan Band Members and Supporter,1stPrize

We made $833.09 from last Saturday’s car wash and even competed with 2 other car washes that same day.  Way to go!!!  A big thank you to all parents and students who came out to help.  We appreciate the doughnuts and the pizza too!

Let’s try to have an even bigger success with our next car wash scheduled for Saturday, August 5th.  We will have the car wash at the same location (band parking lot) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Let’s get some more signs made to advertise!!

Due to the excessive heat that we have had lately, the boosters would like to ask for donations of water for the kids.  Its a tough job washing those cars, so the kids need to stay hydrated.

We will work on having plenty of ice for the water.  If you would like to donate other items, then please contact the boosters at whitestationbandboosters@gmail.com
