STUDENT FUNDRAISERS

The RMHS Music Boosters are offering a number of great fundraisers before the holiday season.   This gives students an opportunity to earn money that can go toward the Spring Disney trip.

Many parents and students have asked for something new, so this year we are offering Dip Mixes and Meat Snack sticks as an alternative fundraising opportunity. Sales of these items began October 6th and orders are due November 2nd. Order forms have been passed out to students.

Cheesecakes and SCRIP gift cards (formally Manna gift cards) are once again being offered to students and make great holiday gifts and treats. Sales of these items will begin October 20th and orders are due November 2nd.

Online sales for Yankee Candle are still open and can be found at https://www.yankeecandlefundraising.com/home.htm

With a number of choices this fall, students can pick an item that they feel most comfortable selling. Students do not have to participate in any fundraising but it is a great way to earn money for your student account and expenses related to the music program, including the Disney Spring trip.

Profits on the various programs vary:

– Cheesecakes sales earn students $6 profit for every one sold
– Scrip gift cards earn a percentage that can range from 5% to 15% of the card value
– Meat snack sticks earn $0.45 on every $1 snack stick sold
– Dip mixes earns $2.50 for every$5 packet sold

– Yankee Candle earns 40% profit on each order

Additional information can be found on the Boosters web site under the fundraising tab or in the sales flyers provided to students.

Pick up for cheesecakes, gift cards, dip mixes and snack sticks will be available Monday November 13th in the RMHS cafeteria. Time to be announced.
