All Music Parents – Mattress Sale Fundraiser Sat 12/1

Thank you to the parents who attended the Mattress Sale meeting last week!   For those of you who could not attend, here is some information about the sale:

2nd Annual Analy High School Music Mattress Sale Fundraiser

When: Saturday, December 1st 10am – 5pm

Where: Analy HS Cafeteria

Why: Benefitting Analy Band Wagon and helping to fund individual students’ Spring Break trip to Disneyland!

At this one-day event, the SAME mattresses sold at stores will be for sale at up to 50% off retail prices.  For us to reach our fundraising goal, we need EVERY student and parent’s help in finding at least 1 person to attend our event who is currently in need of a mattress.

You don’t need to buy a mattress, but we need YOU to get the word out!

The more people that know about the mattress sale, the more money we will raise.

When you see your family and friends over the Thanksgiving Break, please let them know about our mattress sale fundraiser – you never know if someone might need a mattress unless you ask them.

Suggested conversation intro:
“This might sound crazy, but the Analy HS Music Program is hosting a mattress fundraiser sale at the school.  You wouldn’t happen to need a new mattress, would you?”

Additional ways to advertise the sale:

  1. Put a yard sign out – in front of your house or ask a local business on a busy corner.  We have a few more yard signs available in the band room.
  2. Place a poster in a prominent place – at work or at a local business.  Also available in the band room.  Make sure your student writes their name on each coupon.

**Maestro is giving classroom absence and tardy make-up credit to all students who place a yard sign or poster and take a picture of themselves with it. –Please email it to maestro@analybandwagon.org

We will be conducting an important meeting on Thursday, November 8th at 7:30pm that we are asking ALL parents to attend.

We realize that as parents you have very busy schedules, but this is a meeting that CANNOT be overlooked.

As a part of our upcoming fundraiser, the company that we are working with is donating $5 to the Music Program for every parent in attendance at this meeting!

The meeting will be held in the Analy High School Band Room at 7:30pm on Thursday, November 8th.
