Throughout the year, there is the opportunity for students to fundraise for the different trips and events that happen in band. Each student has their own "band account" for their fundraising efforts. Money in this account can be used towards any East Side Band fee: band uniforms, supplies, the Grade 8 Band Camp and the Grade 8 Moose Jaw trip. This money can stay with the students for as long as they are in band, and can be used in high schools for band trips there, but cannot be redeemed for cash.
Sobeys Grocery Vouchers
The East Side Band Parent Council will be running a Sobeys gift card fundraiser continuously throughout the year and in the past, it has been a great fundraising opportunity for individual student accounts year in and year out. The gift cards can be used at Sobeys’ or Safeway. Cards are available in $50 denominations with 5% of each card going directly into students’ band accounts. Students in the past have been able to pay for their entire Grade 8 band trips on Sobeys vouchers alone! Gift cards can be purchased by cash/cheque (made payable to East Side Band Parents)/e-transfer to email@example.com.
