Recital Fundraiser – COOKIES! October 4-20

We’re going to try something new this year – cookie sales! And I don’t mean just *any* little cookies – I mean DEB’S BAKERY COOKIES! These things are not only fantastic, they are HUGE! Here’s the plan: Students will be able to help defray the ever rising costs of our Annual Piano Recital – building use costs, insurance, printing and advertising, just to name the big expenditures. PLUS – students will receive credit for each dozen cookies they sell, which will go toward earning books and sheet music, either for the recital or just for fun!

This week a “shopping list” was sent home with each student to decide which book(s) they may like to earn. They will earn one book or two pieces of sheet music for selling 6 dozen cookies. The more they sell, the more books/sheets they can earn. High sellers may even be able to put their credits toward bigger items like a metronome or music bag.

Cookie order forms will go home with the students the week of October 4-6 and must be returned in two weeks – the week of October 18-20. Fresh cookies will then be available for pickup beginning the following Tuesday (OCTOBER 25) at 11:00 a.m., or whenever you are at your lesson the week of October 25-27.

We know that you will LOVE these cookies! May I recommend the snickerdoodles?

NOTE: The two boxes represent ONE DOZEN. There is 1/2 dozen cookies in EACH BOX.

The Summer 2011 Puzzle Books are READY!

I would like to thank the 10 students who submitted items for our Musical Puzzle Book! Thank you ALL for your participation – you did a great job. Each of the ten participating students will receive one complimentary copy of the finished book. All other students will receive one special puzzle, inspired by each one of them and created by Audrey.

If anyone would like to receive additional copies of the puzzle book, they are available for the cost of materials – $2.00 each and would make a great gift for family and friends.

Puzzle cover contest winner: Audrey! (who was the only submission – and yes, it’s clip art *sigh*) 🙂

Special thanks to Sylvia Williams, who tirelessly proofread every single puzzle and even submitted one!
