Hello, Mid-High Families,
Just a few updates and reminders for Week #4!
Our Penny Drive (competition between Elementary and Mid-High) is underway! All proceeds go directly to the Program!
o We will have one collection for Elementary, and one collection for Mid-High. Donated pennies will be counted as "positive" points towards the session in which they are enrolled. However, any silver (nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, etc.) or cash can be used to put into the opposing session's collection to make their points NEGATIVE!
o The winning team will win a prize at the end of the summer, the plans for which are still underway. Elementary is currently beating us, so bring in that change!
Join us for our Aubree’s Fundraiser! It will be Tuesday, July 24th, from 5:00-8:00PM.
o Fundraising proceeds apply to the buffet only. Buffet includes bottomless salad, pizza, breadsticks, and a drink. The cost is $15, and $5 of each order will come right back to the program!
o Flyers for this event have been emailed out and posted on Facebook. I have attached the flyer to this email, as well.
o Please be sure to bring a hard copy of this flyer to notify the staff at Aubree’s that you are participating in the fundraiser! Encourage family, friends, and neighbors to join!
Join us for our car wash fundraiser! It will be Saturday, July 28th, from 10:00AM-1:00PM in the Dairy Queen parking lot. This event will be run by staff, high school volunteers, and some ninth grade participants. If your student received a permission slip, they have been invited to help out during the event. Everyone else, of course, is welcome to come visit and get their cars washed! Washes are paid for with a donation of your choice.
Your student has officially received all of their scripts for the summer! It is important for them to bring their scripts and a pencil each day. Please also remind them to continue working on line memorization at home. Lines are to be completely memorized by Thursday, July 19th. This is important to get out of the way, as it will give students and staff two weeks to fully rehearse before the show.
Our annual Tricky Tray fundraiser will take place on performance nights. We collect various donated items between $5 and $10 from families to raffle at the end of each performance night. You may bring these items in at any time!
o We will be searching for parents to help with asking for donations from local businesses (most businesses have worked with us in the past and look forward to participating). Please let us know if you’d be interested in lending a hand in this task. Thank you to those who have reached out already!
If you would like to volunteer in any way, please let us know! We are asking for parents to help visit businesses in the South Lyon Area, and sell Tricky Tray tickets on performance nights. We would love and appreciate any help you are able to provide, and your dedication contributes to the longevity of our program!
