This Wednesday, September 21st is our group photo day for the Midwest program. Mr. Hall has excused us from all morning classes this coming Wednesday. Students will return to a normal class schedule starting 5th period. We will bus the students to the Eisemann here in Richardson for the photo shoot. All students will need to bring their concert uniform to school… we will change into concert wear during 1st period. String students may come to school in concert uniforms.
In addition, our next fundraiser towards the Chicago Trip will begin that same day. Brandon is our fundraiser coordinator for Snap! Raise and will be meeting with us around 9:45AM in the orchestra room after we change into concert uniforms.
Snap is an online donation campaign that allows our program to receive donations from our networks and supporters. Snap uses the power of email, text, and social media with a safe, fun and interactive approach. All we ask is that each parent/guardian help their student gather 20 or more email addresses of their biggest fans. Please review the info below to see just how impactful this campaign can be for us.
*Your contacts are strictly private and protected, and never sold or shared.*
Snap Fact Overview:
1. Safe and Protected – Snap! Raise is the safest online donation campaign available. All data is private and never redistributed. Your student’s information on the Snap page is less detailed than what would be on a team website roster.
2. Online donation platform – Reach potential donors via email, social media, and text to ask them to support our program and visit the page, where they can seamlessly donate.
3. Email Strategy – All supporters will receive a receipt for their gift that is tax deductible, included with a personalized thank you from the student. There are three reminder emails sent to donors, with an option to unsubscribe.
4. Network – Snap’s platform and process is what makes their campaigns so successful. It allows an extensive reach across communities by providing options to connect with multiple donors and their social networks, maximizing our raising efforts.
Parents, this fundraiser is going DIRECTLY to lowering the cost per student of the Chicago Trip. All money we raise will bring down the final cost below $600… how much below? That’s up to the student emphasis on this fundraiser!
Each student MUST arrive on Wednesday with their list of 20 QUALITY emails saved into their phone in the “Notes” app. They will then log into the Snap! server and upload the 20 emails directly from their phone… simply copy and pasting from “Notes” to the web server.
