  • FUNDRAISING: We will kick off our candy bar sale on April 14th at the booster meeting.  Boxes will have to be signed out.  Opened boxes can't be returned.  The boxes have sixty candy bars in them and sell for $1 each.  Students will make $30 off of each box.  Only one box per student will be signed out at a time.  You can get another box when you turn in the money from the box you took.  We will have collection dates of when students can do this.  Please do not ask the directors for a box of candy or give them money.  Shannon Bond and Christy Earl will do the collection of money and passing out of candy.  The sale runs through April 29th.
  • TRAINING & AUDITION DATES: The dates have been released for the Percussion Line, Color Guard and Field Commander Training Sessions and Auditions as well as the supplemental rehearsal schedule leading into the official July start of the 2014 McGavock Marching Band!

Kroger Cards

KROGER CARDS: Christy Earl has Kroger Cards available for purchase for $5.00 each.  Kroger Cards are a great and easy way to fundraise Fair Share accounts by adding money to be spent on gas and groceries to the card. The return is 4¢ per dollar. Please bring cash if possible to pay for them; Christy will be at most band functions.  She can be reached at earlfamily391@gmail.com  or call her at 739-3026

School Fundraiser Target

SCHOOL FUNDRAISER: Target Stores is holding a fundraiser where schools can earn gift cards for clicks/votes! For every 25 “clicks” the school gets a $25 gift card for supplies. It’s a great way to help the school earn money and doesn’t cost you anything! And don’t forget: if you use a Target card when you shop, you can designate McGavock High School there as well! Please note that this is a school fundraiser, not a band fundraiser. Give With Target
