Grafton Music Parents Fundraiser

posted Oct 3, 2018, 7:32 AM by Jamie Koehler   [ updated Oct 10, 2018, 7:34 AM ]

Fundraiser for Grafton Music Parents is going on NOW!  Sale ends on Monday, October 29th!  Pick-up will be Thursday, November 15th for 2 hours after the school is let out AT THE SCHOOL YOU SUBMITTED THE ORDER FORM AT.

We are selling Colectivo Coffe, Tea, and Hot Cocoa, and we are profiting $5-$6 for every lb. of coffee and every tin of tea sold!  Plus, you can purchase Colectivo's coffee and tea through our fundraiser for less than you can at their store and at Sendik's.   
Fundraising forms will be sent home to our band and choir groups, but everyone in the district is welcome to sell & more forms are found HERE!

Grafton Music Parents supports the music program by providing:
    1. Money to purchase equipment for the music room not provided through the school's budget.
    2. The cost of guest musicians and field trips to music performances for students in all grade levels.
    3. Volunteers at the Solo & Ensemble Festivals hosted in Grafton every few years.
    4. Scholarships to music camps and honor groups.
    5. Financial assistance for choral and band trips at the high school level.
