Tomorrow we are going to have a clinic with Cindy Bullock for both bands. Students in First period will rehearse during 1st and 2nd period, Students in 6th period will rehearse during 6th and 7th periods. We are very excited to have Mrs. Bullock come and work with our groups as we are nearing UIL Concert and Sightreading!
We are down to only about 12 rehearsals left until our UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest on April 13th. Please try not to schedule doctors appointments during the band class periods and also please avoid any major dental work until after April 13th. Sometimes these things can really have a big impact on the students right before our UIL Contest.
Please stay tuned for an email from our fundraising chairman regarding the TCGC Volunteering information for this weekend and next. The mandatory information meeting is scheduled for this Friday and 7pm at Reed Arena. Thanks to all who helped volunteer for this event. Proceeds for this event will help fund senior scholarships and help keep band fees low.
Parents, Students, and Staff,
Recently, we have been given a very unique fundraising opportunity by Texasliving magazine. We will be selling annual subscriptions to a Texas based magazine that is currently enjoyed by more than 60,000 people every month.
As you are aware, our program has many financial needs and currently does several fundraisers during the year in attempt to meet these needs. We believe this single fundraiser provides us the opportunity to raise more money than all our other fundraisers combined. WE NEED YOUR HELP to make it happen! Thankfully, this should also be our easiest fundraiser.
It is specifically designed around the use of social media and text messaging. Everything can be done from your phone!
We are excited to get started and our campaign will run from Wednesday February 22nd through Monday March 27th. Over the course of the month I will send different social media messages for you to copy and paste as a tweet, post, or text. The messages we post should all include our schools unique page for your sponsors to subscribe. Here is the link: www.txlfundraising.com/cshs
We will receive more than half of every subscription sold. We need all students to participate and sell the goal of 15 each. If every student reaches this goal, the band will raise over $40,000! Texasliving also has a special Schlitterbahn promotion and will reward any student who attains 20 subscriptions with 4 tickets to the New Braunfels park!
From the Fundraising Company:
As promised, here is your first social media message to be posted to your Facebook page. Simply copy the message provided to a Facebook post and let the power of social media do the work for you! Be sure to follow-up and direct message anyone who likes or comments on your post. Tag prospective friends or family members and encourage others to share your post as well.
Here is the template:
Hi friends and family! I'm raising funds for CSHS Band. We are selling subscriptions to Texasliving magazine. My goal is to sell 15, and your support would be much appreciated.
All you need to do now is go to www.txlfundraising.com/CSHS and subscribe online. Just make sure to write, ________ ________ for the students name and I'll get the credit. Thanks! #txlFUNdraising
We are happy to report that in the first few hours that your fundraiser was live, the band raised over $300! That was done with ZERO labor, in 5 hours by only 6 students. Now imagine once we get all 170 band members to join in on the FUN! We anticipate that your exposure through Facebook will only increase the amount of traffic to our fundraising page.
