PHS Music 2021 Newsletter – Vol 4 29 September 2021
Hello Band Families!
This newsletter details how our fundraising is going and asks for your help in getting us into shape for all our upcoming events. This month the PHS Music Program student leadership has put together our first bake sale! Also we’re starting up a new GoFundMe campaign (details below). Additionally we’re listing other ways you can contribute through purchasing from Amazon Smile or eScript.
October will also feature a return to football and our first competition in over a year! We’d love to see you all in Santa Cruz and are looking for parents to help our student musicians prepare for the competition! If you can help please contact Mick at 707.799.9500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next Booster Board Meeting will be October 7 at 6:30pm in the band room. Hope to see you all there!
Thanks for your continuing support!
Student bake Sale This Saturday And Sunday
Yummy treats will be available to purchase (cash and checks please) this Saturday 12-2 and Sunday 12-1 in front of Copperfield’s on Kentucky Street, downtown Petaluma. Help Support High School Music!
Last year our GoFundMe campaign raised enough money to help fund our adjunct faculty and bring much needed support for distance learning. This year we are still missing our big fundraising event Bingo so we’re started a new GoFundMe campaign this year. To donate visit https://gofund.me/d3821ebc .
