The band students are going to be selling frozen cookie dough again this year! This is the most important fundraiser for the Stonepark band program, and the product will be delivered to customers on November 21st, just in time for Christmas baking.
Cookie dough catalogues and order forms are being distributed to band students this week. Students will be asked to take orders until Thursday, October 25th. Cash and cheques are accepted, and cheques can be made payable to Stonepark Intermediate.
The cookie dough, which comes in tubs or pre-portioned in boxes, will be delivered to Stonepark, and will be available for pick up by sellers in the Stonepark cafeteria from 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21st.
All profits from this fundraiser will be shared equally among participants, and will go toward the cost of extra-curricular activities and band field trips at the grade 7, 8, and 9 levels. Band field trips are getting more expensive each year, and it is our hope that this campaign will help to ensure that all students have an opportunity to participate in all special events. Some parents prefer to make an equivalent cash donation, and such donations are welcome as well.
In past years, band students have been able to fund raise over $5000 for the band program during this short campaign. Each student is asked to set a personal goal of selling 5 tubs or boxes in order to help us to achieve this year’s goal. Prizes will be offered at various sales levels.
Participants may also wish to shop online at QSP.ca (online code 4344800 or enter Stonepark Band) and to use PayPal and Major Credit Cards. Online sales will count toward students’ sales goals. Students who sell products in online sales will also be entered into prize draws. Items purchased online will also be delivered to the school on November 21st, and will have to be picked up by students to be delivered to customers.
We will need parent volunteers to help with this fundraiser (sorting orders, collecting payments, and preparing the order forms to send to QSP on October 25th, and organizing and distributing cookie dough at the school on November 21st). A volunteer sign-up form will be posted on the blog later this week.
Please watch for the catalogues which will be sent home with all band students this week.
Thank you in advance for your support!
