For  the following 6 (six) dates we need 2 (Two) ADULTS to help Mr. Coleman or Mr. Van Arsdale to organize/supervise students washing cars, collect donations, and promoting carwash near route 1 and route 239 entrances.  We also need 12 (twelve) or more STUDENTS each date to work the car wash.

Let me make this very clear – this is the start of the 2018-2019 for the the entire music department’s fundraising efforts.   The funds raised here helps pay for every aspect of the department.   Funds that are not raised here comes from other aspects of the WHOLE department.  This is not a band thing, string thing, chorus thing, marching band thing, it all of us pulling together toward a common goal – STUDENT SUCCESS!
