INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISER-. Earnings will go directly to your account (up to $599)
· -Steel Days Breakfast Tickets: These will be available to sell at the end of June/beginning of July.
GROUP FUNDRAISER- Earnings from these events will go towards bringing down everyone’s band fees.
Fundraising on your own-The money from these fundraisers are not affiliated with the school and can be used for band or Macy’s parade fees. Just a note-if you do your own fundraiser (fliers for mowing lawns, window washing, selling items) you CANNOT use the band logo or imply that this is going towards the band. This is against district policy and will cause problems for future fundraising.
We still have some opportunities to host Japanese students this summer and earn some money toward those band fees! You can earn in two ways:
1. Host a student -- there are two programs we still need families for. One is from July 19-27 and pays $225 for the week. (They arrive in the afternoon, so it won't conflict with all the Steel Days Parade fun!) The other is from July 21-Aug 4 and pays $330.
2. Refer a family to host -- whether you are able to host or not, if you refer a family that hosts, we will pay you $20 per family. So talk to your friends and neighbors and spread the word!
We also have a great volunteer opportunity for your students who are looking for something great to do this summer! It's being a buddy to our visiting Chinese students. It's simple -- you come to AFJH on five different days (July 17, 22, 23, 29 or 30, and Aug 1) and be a "buddy" to our Chinese students for the afternoon. You'll help them practice English for an hour, have lunch provided by us (free food!), and then hang out with them during the days' activities. The activities include games, Clas Ropes (challenge course/zipline), Cabella's and Traverse Mountain Outlets (photo scavenger hunt), and even Seven Peaks! Everything is free for the buddies -- we just want a little bit of your time! So if you're looking for a great (and FUN!) service opportunity, we'd love to have you!
If you have ANY questions on either Hosting or Being a Buddy, please let me know -- I'm happy to answer any questions you may have! Thanks so much!
