Many thanks for your support of the FOS Plant Sale. Through you and your children’s enthusiastic efforts, over $24,000 in plants were sold! That’s more than in 2019 and translates close to 30,000 individual plants! Proceeds from the FOS plant sale are invested right back into the AHISD strings program, providing a valuable and enriching education in the field of music to your children!
Now comes the exciting part of the plant sale! Volunteers are needed on Saturday, 28 March 2020, to help with plant pick up day! Volunteers can sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050b4ba8a828a57-friends. The more people there are to help, the smoother the day will go. Plus, it is a fun event, older students can receive service hours, and there will be coffee, donuts, and tacos. To ensure no one has to volunteer for the whole day, shifts are 2 to 3 hours. The day begins at 6:00am, with families picking up plants between 10:30am and 1:00pm, and the work day ends at 2:30pm.
We look forward to seeing you on plant pick up day on 28 March. If you have questions and/or, please reach out to us or contact Catherine Sobieszczyk, plant sale chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember to mark your calendar for the next FOS meeting! It will be held Tuesday, 3 March 2020, beginning at 6:30pm. FOS meetings are open to all! Hear the latest from your teachers on what they have planned for the rest of year. Learn about FOS volunteer opportunities and how you can be a part! For instance, there are FOS Board openings for the 2020-2021 school year, and school representatives to help with such events as the plant sale are needed.
Thank you for your support!
