Pride Accounts / Status of final payments
We are in the final stages for our preparations for the upcoming trip to California for the Rose Parade trip. At the last band parent meeting, there was inaccurate info shared by Mr. Davis regarding account payment reductions. In our group effort fundraising, Mr. Davis has been inadvertently figuring a cost reduction that included the Rose Parade Postcards (which apply ONLY to individual accounts). Once the proceeds have been reconciled with the Car Raffle and Run With the Pride, there will hopefully be one final payment reduction applied. Please see below for the latest info on Pride Account Payment structure. This info is the latest and most accurate!

Feb / Mar $250
May $250
June $400
July $400
August $400
September $400
October $400
November $400
December $450 REDUCED to $100 based on current GROUP
Fundraising efforts Total $3350 REDUCED to $3000
