The Scholarship Committee works to raise money for the Friends of Music general fund which supports the Scholarships given out at the end of the year. The committee is currently organizing our themed basket raffle for the Spring Concert and NH Chili Cook off. We would like all of the students to be involved, so we have talked to the students about their participation. We have grouped the students together by sections, and each section has been assigned a specific basket theme.

Sections will be assigned leaders, who will be asked to coordinate and collect student’s donations. Each student is asked to donate at least one item for their section’s basket. There will be sign-up sheets posted on the wall in the music room for your children to sign up for an item(s) that will coincide with their section’s basket theme. If the student would like to donate something that is not on the list, they may do so, but please remember to choose something that will go with the basket theme and let their leader know what they are donating.

For every item, gift certificate or monetary donation the student will be entered in a raffle to win a $50 cash prize. We ask that all item(s) be brought to school in a bag labeled with your student’s name, section and theme, this will ensure they get a raffle ticket. If you feel you aren’t able to meet this goal, we ask that you please just do what you can. Donations may also be solicited from local businesses.

If your student is involved with more than one section, you may choose to donate to both/all baskets; or you may choose to donate to one basket. We ask that if you choose to donate to just one, please choose the section that has the least number of students. For example if your child is in both Alvirne Singers and B-Naturals, please go with the B-Naturals section as they most likely have fewer students than the Alvirne Singer section.

We would like to thank you in advance for your participation and cooperation in this project. We are proud to say that this event was very successful last year and we are looking forward to doing even better this year!
