Mattress Sale Fundraiser!
Our annual Mattress sale is only 2 weeks away on Saturday, February 27th! This event will be held in the Freshman Academy Cafeteria. Our back up facility is First Baptist Church Huntsville.
If you need a mattress - come check it out! Compare these prices to what you get in a store. You will come out on top and help the band program.
Don't need a mattress? (or even if you do!!) - help promote it for us. Social media is the EASIEST way to promote it and takes 30 seconds out of your day to share our event on your social media pages. Share it to your neighborhood social media page! https://fb.me/e/3c02nfGUu Give out the fliers to those who might need it so your student gets the credit! Someone you know has a 10+ year old mattress and needs a new one - guarantee it!
How is this event COVID safe?

Seniors/Senior Parents - Ms. Connell has graciously offered to share her creative skills with us and make scrapbooks for any senior that would like one if the family will provide $80 for the supplies (book ($20), 2 sets of refill pages/ protectors ($40), and the paper and embellishments plus extra photos of band logos, photos from FB, etc) and 30-40 printed pictures. These can be from any age or activity (not just high school and not just band). Please organize them by grade level, if at all possible. Photos will need to be turned in by 3/1/2021. So, over the break, search thru those photos and decide upon 30-40 that capture your senior. If you have any questions, please contact Christy Rainey at 256-508-3382 or email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.
