Fund Raiser Due on September 5th and 6th

Dear Parents,
We are collecting our fundraiser next week on Tuesday and Wednesday (September 5 and 6). Your student should have brought home an order form and a brochure last Thursday. Please make sure that your student returns their order form on these two days. We have asked that students only bring in one check made out to Dickerson Middle School. On collection day we will review the order with your student and have them place the money in a specific envelope. Students will turn in their money and order forms during band class. We do need a few parents to volunteer, so if you are available any time on those two days please fill out the form below. Thank you so much for all you do, and please contact us with any questions.
