Fowler Falcon Beginning Band Annual Fundraiser
Greetings Band Parents:
The Falcon Beginning Band will begin its annual fundraiser in September. Our students will be selling high quality, personalized items, such as writing pens, frames, key chains, and stainless travel mugs, plus their National Champions college logo line. I-Mark is a DFW metro company, located in Irving, Texas. Our Band has had greater success with this particular fundraiser than with any other program, primarily due to the quality of their products and their excellent prize program
for the students. These products make excellent Christmas gifts, and will be delivered before Thanksgiving.
This is our only fundraiser of the school year! It is critical for us to be successful, so that we can provide scholarships for needy students, professional clinicians to enhance your child's musical education, additional rewards, transportation, etc... While FISD does an excellent job of providing funds for equipment (stands, chairs, instruments…) it does not provide enough funds for other vital components needed to provide the best band experience possible for our students. It is important we have a successful fundraiser because these additional costs (clinicians, scholarships, awards, bus travel…) will be over $17,000 this coming year.
ANNUAL BAND FUNDRAISER

Middle School Band is teaming up with USA Fundraisers to help raise money for our Band. We would like to get all students and parents involved so that this one fundraiser can help raise enough money to cover all our costs. With everyone’s participation we can make this happen! We would like for each student to sell at least 14 items.

Thank you, in advance, for your support and participation. If you have any questions about this fundraiser, please contact Mr. Dunham (DunhamD@friscoisd.org)
On September 13th, a representative from I-Mark pens will be demonstrating the products to the students. On that day, the students will complete a form to personalize their own sample pen. Upon receiving the sample pen, it is theirs to keep. The actual sale of items will be September 27th - October 11th. However, the following information will determine whether the student keeps the pen for FREE or whether the student PAY for their pen:
-Students selling 7 items will receive their pen for FREE
- Students selling 1 – 6 items will pay $7.00 for their pen
- Students selling 0 items will pay $14.00 for their pen
Because this fundraiser involves students ordering their own personalized “sample”, a student must return the form below ONLY IF THEY DO NOT want to participate. If you and your student decide not to participate in this fundraiser, but would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to the FMS Band, your child will receive prizes as well. (These students will actually receive the higher level prizes more quickly because every $7.00 donated = 1 item sold)
Thank you, in advance, for your support and participation. If you have any questions about this fundraiser, please contact Our Vice-President Lou Magana (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mr. Dunham (DunhamD@friscoisd.org)
