Congratulations Class of 2019 for achieving "Runner up" in Spirit Week 2016! To everyone that participated in the building of our float and creation of our gym decorations, I personally want to say a big THANK YOU!! A special thanks needs to go out to Miya Preyer for designing our float, our gym decorations and our class t-shirt! To all of our parents who helped..... we could not have done it without you! And to our host family for our float... The Alia family, thank you for opening up your home to us, your flexibility in allowing us to be there at all hours of the week, and for providing everyone with refreshments! We can't thank you enough!
We will be having three fundraisers for the class during the month of November:
1. Class clothing sale (order form will be available on 11/14/16)
2. PopSocket sale (A really neat cell phone accessory with our Gull logo): Ongoing, until we sell out
3. Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough Sale (Order forms will be handed out in HR on 11/1/16)
**This is an individual account fundraiser, which will be credited towards the cost of the senior class trip!
A WORD ON FUNDRAISING...
We will be having 3 individual fundraisers (one this year, one in junior year, and 1 in senior year). The rest of the fundraising goes into our general account. Senior year is a special year, and the things we will be able to do that year and the cost associated with these activities depend upon our success with our fundraising. Senior year activities include the 100 days dinner-event, the prom, the yearbook dinner, the senior class trip and Project Graduation. They help to keep down the cost of the prom bids and costs for the senior class trip. For example, the cost of transportation to the senior class trip is approximately $4000.00. General fundraising can cover this one expense. If the money is not available from the funds generated through our general fundraising, it would need to be added to the individual student cost for the trip. We can have a great yearbook dinner on a dinner cruise or at a catering facility paid with the funds from general fundraising, or without the funds have a parent donated dinner in our school cafeteria. Our project graduation can be made to be exceptional through our general fundraising, or it can be very simple without it. Lets work together to give the GREAT Class of 2019 an awesome senior year! We can make this happen if we all participate in all fundraising activities.
Thank you all so much!
