Spring Fundraiser Starts Today

Today your children should be bringing home a fundraising packet!
Why Fundraise?
25% of what your child raises will go directly into their Trip Account. This is a great way for our students to offset this expense. Many students have completely paid off their balance in the past! 
25% of what your child raises will go into the band activity account. Our program goal is to raise enough money to purchase some MUCH NEEDED instruments for the band program.
We understand that many of you may wish to opt out of participating in this Fundraiser. If you so desire, you may make a monetary donation directly to the band program. 
All checks should be made payable to CeVMS Band.
We appreciate your support of the Cedar Valley MS Band Program!
