Hello Everyone,

You might have heard the exciting news of our upcoming band trip to Atlanta, Georgia!!! We have been invited to compete in the Music In The Parks Festival in May. It would fantastic to have as many students participate as possible by taking advantage of a great fundraiser called Snap! Raise. Many school groups have had great success using this company and it has the potential of funding your child’s entire trip. Here is how it works:

Snap! Raise will raise funds by asking for trip sponsorships through email addresses you provided of family members, business owners, family doctors, orthodontist/dentist or any other individuals. At least 20 people of your student’s biggest fans should be included in the list of emails. Here is a link to set up an account if your child has not done so already http://raise.snap.app/join_code/649048781.

In the past, band students ask for trip sponsorships through the regular mail. Some students were able to finance their entire trip through sponsorships. Snap! Raise should be just as successful if not even more now that we are in the digital age. It is recommended to provide a picture of the your student and provide at least 20 emails by January 23. The fundraiser campaign will start January 24 – February 21st. All funds raised by the student will go towards the individual’s trip account. If you have any questions email me back.
