Each fundraiser will have specific details and information coming on it closer to the appropriate time.  We just wanted to let you know these events are coming up  and will benefit not only our Performing Arts programs here at McDonough but can also benefit your own student accounts towards trips, t-shirts, etc . . .  Each fundraiser will have a selling goal for the student to earn BEFORE any profit can go into their own account. Selling goals may be different between your  Band, Chorus , and Drama teachers because each organization needs different money to run.  You are encouraged  to sell cards for EACH of the PERFORMING ARTS you are in.  For example, if you are in Band and Chorus, you need to sell at least the minimum required by your teacher in each group.  Perhaps Band wants you to sell 5 before money goes into your account and Choir wants you to sell 3.  You would need to sell 8 items before you can start selling any to go towards your account money.  Also, you will need to turn a form into each PA teacher to keep the bookkeeping straight.  So again, if you are in band and Choir, get a brochure from each group and label it as such. Student accounts differ in how they are run from PA organization to organization.  

In drama, we will repost your drama accounts after each big fundraiser. So get out there and help us reach our goals so that we can help you reach your goals.
