September 1 - 30, Pretzel Fundraiser (ALL $$ DUE BY SEPT. 30)
The annual pretzel rod fundraiser is underway! Students are encouraged to sell 1 box of 60 pretzels for $1 each. Remember that students are responsible for money collection and the entire box must be sold (we cannot accept unsold/returned merchandise).  Students may check out additional boxes (one at a time) once money is turned in for the previous box sold.  Money raised supports our annual operating budget for items such as music/equipment purchases, clinicians, and transportation. Thanks for your support!
