The opportunities that are presented to our students through the Falcon Sound are dependent upon raising significant funds and resources beyond what is provided by the School District. These funds must be raised through student fees and fundraising. Individual student fees can be substantially reduced through parental and student involvement in fundraising activities.
Our fundraising efforts are led by parents and supporters through our booster organization, Falcon Sound Alliance, Inc.
Parents and students can participate in the following events to help raise necessary funds for their Falcon Sound Alliance account.
All Year Round
The Scrip program is where parents purchase gift cards from the Band in advance that can be used like cash. Scrip can be purchased for a whole list of stores/service providers (groceries, gas, Starbucks, Borders, etc.) through the Great Lakes Scrip company. A percentage of the cost for these cards is rebated back to the student’s Individual Student Account (FSA).
Candy sells for $1 each and student will receive 50% to his/her own account. The initial cost of the box will be entered on the student account. When the money is returned, it will be credited to the student’s account.
To request candy, please EMAIL Judi Drobner at [email protected]
Candy distribution will be done after practices
Return money in the form of a check or money order for all sales. Place in an envelope along with name of student and the box ID # assigned. NO CASH accepted!!
