The band students are going to be selling frozen cookie dough again this year! This is the major fundraiser for the Stonepark band program, and the product will be delivered to customers just in time for Christmas.
This year, our campaign will begin on Monday, October 23rd. Students will be asked to take orders for cookie dough from October 23rd until November 6th. 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 Thursday, November 30th.
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 attend 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 at least 3 units in order to help us to achieve this year’s goal. Students who sell three units will also be eligible for prize draws!
*Participants may also wish to shop online at QSP.ca for more variety, and to use PayPal and Major Credit Cards. Online sales will count toward students’ sales goals. Students who sell $45 worth of products in online sales (the equivalent of 3 units of cookie dough) will also be entered into prize draws.
We will need parent and student volunteers to help with this fundraiser (sorting orders as they arrive, collecting payments on the turn-in day, preparing the order forms to send to QSP, distributing cookie dough at the school, etc.). 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 on Monday, October 23rd.
Thank you in advance for your support!
