LSWMP Ice Cream Social

Good evening,

This past Thursday and Friday I spent the day at the high school handing out a packet that included five meal tickets, five dessert tickets and a letter explaining the ice cream social. I’m going to attach the letter as well as instructions on how to access CHARMS (it will be one document).

If you haven’t received the tickets from your students please ask them. There will also be more tickets available from each of the music teachers. It’s important that money/checks or unused tickets are turned back in so that we can plan accordingly for food.

Volunteers are needed for this event as we serve roughly 1300 meals and desserts at this event. We need any help that you can give. Our volunteer coordinator will be sending information on how to signup. She’ll likely wait until after this next weekend, CHARMS is doing a server upgrade shortly.

If you’d like to donate or know of a business that would like to donate an item(s) for the live auction please let me know. We currently have one parent that will be donating three snare cajons, which will be demonstrated at the ice cream social.

Food will start being served at 5pm with performances starting at 6pm. Performance schedule to be announced shortly.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Go Titans!!

Fundraising Opportunities


There are a couple of upcoming volunteer opportunities. Please sign up in Charms if you can assist.

Cookie Dough Fundraiser — Cookie dough will be delivered to the school on Nov. 7th. Andrea Kaiser will need assistance in sorting the cookie dough and distributing cookie dough for pickup. Shifts are from 1:00pm to 3:00pm and 3:00pm to 6:00pm.

Christmas in the Park — The LSW Music Parent group has been given the opportunity to assist Jackson County with the Christmas in the Park display at Longview Lake. In exchange for manning the donation buckets and distributing candy to everyone that comes through the park on a given night, our group will be given up to $1,000 for the general fund. Our group has been assigned Nov. 29th from 5:00pm to 11:00pm. This is the Friday after Thanksgiving, so I know a number of people will be out of town, but if you are in town please consider volunteering. It should be a fun night! (Note: children under the age of 16 are not allowed to participate in this volunteer opportunity. We can have some students that are at 16, but the majority of the volunteers must be adults.) Also, if a certain local football team is playing for the state championship, then that game will occur on Sat. Nov. 30th J

Thank you for all of the support that you provide the LSW music program!

First Fundraiser

Hello Music Parents,

Time for Fundraisers! Most of your kids came home with a packet but some have not.  They will get them tomorrow.  For our first fundraiser, we will be selling Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough and pizza!

To Start I want everyone to know that fundraisers are OPTIONAL.  However, this is a great way for your child to earn money to put in their individual music  accounts.  The money can be used for fees, choir dresses, trip payments etc….
About this fundraiser:

1. It will run till Oct. 14.  ALL ORDERS AND MONEY ARE DUE ON OCT. 14

2. Money has to be collected at time of ordering

3. Checks made payable to: LSWMP

4. All items are $16 and they make a profit of $6.40 on each item.

5. The orders will be delivered the week of Nov. 3.  Will have the exact date later.

Heads up for future fundraiser

In November we will be starting a new fundraiser.  I hate that they fall so close together but I wanted to fit one more in before Christmas.  It will be a fundraiser selling summer sausages and cheese, chocolate candies and a few non food items.  More information to come.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me.

Thanks ,

Andrea Kaiser

LSW Music Fundraiser Liaison
