Band-Aid: Find Your Fun(d)

posted Apr 16, 2017, 4:39 PM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Apr 16, 2017, 4:39 PM ]
As Doc has said many times, this has been a year of many “firsts” and here’s another one!  With Marching Band registration around the corner and the announcement of the Outback Bowl trip December 28, 2017 through January 2, 2018, we want to show families how easy it can be to make all the band fun financially feasible – it just takes a little plan!
We encourage PARENTS and STUDENTS to attend our first: 
Band-Aid:  Find Your Fun(d) Workshop
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 7:30 – Location TBA

If you can’t attend this one, plan to attend one of the other future dates:
Tuesday, May 30 @ 7:30 – Band Room
Thursday, June 22 @7:30 – Band Room
Did you know… There are families who have NEVER written a check for band?  They utilize a combination of band fundraisers to earn money for their band account, even marching band and trips!  Want to add your name to THAT list?!?  Come to the Band-Aid Workshop!  We’ll show you how easy it can be with a little planning!
WORKSHOP GOAL:  By providing an overview of ALL band fundraising opportunities, this workshop is designed to guide you step by step through the process of: 
-  Setting fundraising goals for your family
-  Creating a customized fundraising plan designed specifically for YOUR family
We encourage students and parents to attend together.  This workshop provides parents a terrific opportunity to work with your student to set goals, to create a plan, and to teach financial responsibility and accountability.  We all know we achieve more when we have specific goals and a plan.  Why not have goals and a plan for earning money for your band account!!
Working alongside other band families (we really are a fabulous group!), it is fun and easy to earn money for your band account.  With a variety of fundraiser types and opportunities throughout the year, there are fundraisers to meet every family’s schedule, goals, and needs.  We want you to utilize the fundraising opportunities that work best for YOU!  When both parents and students work together, you’ll be amazed at how quickly little contributions will accumulate in your band account to make a BIG difference!
Fundraiser chairs – Thanks so much for all that you do to make sure these fundraisers run smoothly and provide our families great opportunities to earn money for their accounts.  We can’t do it without you!!!  Since this is a general overview, we’ve got what we need to prepare the workshop and we encourage you to attend and create your own plan!
Give your band account a Band-Aid and Find YOUR Fun(d)!
