Fruit Sale update

Hello Anthony Wayne Band Parents!

I wanted to let you know that the Fruit Sale packets were handed out to band students starting on Wednesday Oct 7th. If you have not seen your student’s packet, please have them dig it out of their locker! (^:

There is a very informative letter in the front of the packet that explains the order turn in process for each school, as well as the pick up date and time.

  • November 2nd is order turn in, from 4-8:30pm in the HS auditorium lobby (note the paper flyer incorrectly says to go to the HS band room).
  • December 12th is order pick up, from 9am-Noon in the HS cafeteria.

When turning in your order, include the money for the purchases. Please make sure to list the student’s name, grade, and a phone number to reach you on December 12th (in case you forget to pick up your order).

Also, I am looking for 6 volunteers from 3:45-6:30pm and 6 volunteers from 6:15-8:30pm to assist with the turn in process. You will check each order as it is turned in.

Contact me if you are interested in one of the shifts. Pizza and pop will be provided for the volunteers. High school students can get credit for community service. Please let me know if your child is coming with you or alone so I can plan accordingly.

Thank you for your continued support of our band program.

Best Regards,
Kerri Murphy
