Get a Head Start on the Holidays!

Posted on Oct 31, 2018

The start of November means the holidays will be here before we know it and Waukesha West Bands has several ways to help you get started on your shopping! Participating in our Cherrydale fundraiser, which has order forms and brochures students can pick up in the band room, and the poinsettia sale (see links below) will help students supplement their invidual band accounts, adding funds they can use to pay band fees or to make trip payments. And participating in our ornament/travel mug fundraiser will raise funds that will be added to our general band account, which helps us purchase music, instruments, marching band uniforms and everything else needed to run our program.

Remember, all of our fundraisers are completely optional and while you’re encouraged to participate, you are never required to do so. If interested, click on the links below for our poinsettia and ornament/mug order forms and let your holiday shopping begin!
