If you missed last night’s parent meeting, please take a moment to read the attached Spring 2017 Tour Commitment Form. We are excited to put together an amazing tour to celebrate the year with your students and show off their amazing talent in a magical way – at Disneyland! To complete the planning for this event, we need an honest commitment for your student. Please complete the attached Commitment Form and return it to Mr. Hodge or ABBA no later than Saturday, 8/27.
Your students should have brought home a packet for the Tritan Tumblers. These are the same cups that sell at Bed Bath & Beyond – for the same price – and can help fund-raise money for your student’s program (and tour!) The students are in their own competition within their sections, but they can also earn a personalized Titan Band & Guard Sweatshirt by selling at least 20 tumblers. Fundraiser needs to be turned in to ABBA on Friday, 9/2 at the football game.
It is time to order your 2016-17 Show Shirt and Spirit Wear! The attached Order Form will be collected on 8/20 and 8/27 during Super Saturday.

It is almost time for our biggest fundraiser of the year..Fireworks!! Our booth will again be in the Walmart Parking lot on Antelope Road, next to Home Depot.
To jump start our fundraising efforts the students will be selling firework scrip. Scrip is like buying a gift card at the store but it can only be used at our fireworks booth this year. The scrip will be sold in $10.00 denominations, students will collect orders/money and turn into ABBA. The student will then be given the “scrip” to distribute to family, friends, neighbors or anyone else you can think of that buys fireworks each year.
Scrip is like cash, when they come to the fireworks booth and because it is like cash they can be combined.
Why sell someone scrip if you already know they are going to come to our booth?
Scrip guarantees that when they purchase their fireworks that they will come to our booth. Some will buy scrip even if they are not buying fireworks this year, just to support the band! and most that use scrip at our booth generally will spend more.
Lets start our fundraising out right for next year. Our goal, each student to sell a minimum of 10~ really not that hard to do since most everyone love Fireworks!!
Scrip sales will be the first few weeks of May and students can turn in at the concert on May 6th and the Awards night on May 18th or anytime to the ABBA mailbox in the office (checked regularly)
for the Scrip Order form and purchase Scrip today!
