Save Around the City Books / Money

We have only one more BOX of Save Around the City books available for your student to sell. We need these to be gone, as we will be charged for them, regardless if your students sell and benefit from the proceeds. They sell for $25, and all of the proceeds from that sale ($8.50) go to your student’s trip account. This is a unique opportunity to build your trip credit for future travel. Many students have signed out some of these books. We ask that if you will be unable to sell them you return them so others may do so. We are being charged for all of these books, so we want to get them sold and apply the benefits directly to your trip account. Please turn in any unsold books or book money ASAP!

 

SJVCGPR Show #4 Volunteers Needed

We are again looking for concessions volunteers for the upcoming SJVCGPR show #4 this Friday at Clovis East High School. We will be running concessions for every show, and your help is needed. Thank you as well to all the wonderful volunteers who helped at the third show! There are spots for both students and adults, please sign up to help here.

 

Cookie Dough Order Pickup

Great American Opportunities helped us sell over 500 items over the phone to help raise funds for the program. This was a great sale, thank you to all who participated as this will help us pay some bills that are fast approaching. As it took some time to receive all orders, we will be slightly delayed from the end of February estimate of delivery. Please plan on orders arriving Wednesday March 14th. We are going to need lots of parent help to make distribution easy on the 14th. Please contact Erika Bennett if you are able to help distribute on the 14th, and watch the charms calendar for volunteer sign-up. Thanks again for a great fundraiser!

 

Remember, if you or a friend would like to make a general donation in lieu of purchasing fundraiser items, donations can be made anytime at http://cloviswest.cwaim.org/donations/.

 

Last See’s Candies Fundraiser of the Year

Past News…

Pledges and Trip Fees

As we have turned the calendar over to the 2018 year, we have noticed that many of the pledges and trip fees that were promised by many of our families have not come in or repeat payments haven’t been set up. Please remember, we use this information to plan what we can do throughout the school year. If you have not yet submitted your pledges/fees it is not too late to do so. We would greatly appreciate it if these could be submitted as soon as possible.

 

Staff, Instruments, Music, and supplies all have costs, and while the district does offer us a lot of support it does not fully fund the program we offer your students. Your donations and financial support coupled with fundraising allow us to continue to offer the programs at the level we do, and hopefully make enhancements in the future. Please help us continue to provide a quality music education for your student by fulfilling your pledged amounts and or paying your trip fees. 

 

If you would like to continue to support our programs and provide a donation, please consider setting up a recurring payment through paypal. You can access an easy to use method right here: http://cloviswest.cwaim.org/donations/

 

Our Amazon Wish List is Back

Our Wish List is back and we need your help! We will update this list periodically with things that the program needs and can use. If you see an item that you would like to purchase for the program, please do! After the order is placed, it will be automatically shipped to Clovis West and will be put straight to good use improving the music experience for our students!
