PHS Orchestras

Fundraiser orders are due Monday, 2/11. Please be sure to fill in totals on the coffee/hot cocoa order form. Double check that the student’s name is on the order forms. It is very helpful if order forms and money can be together in an envelope or Ziploc bag with the student’s name on it. This helps me to keep track of who sold what. Thanks for your help with this! Also, if any donations were given, please account for that, e.g. a note with the amount donated is helpful. Checks may be payable to PHS Orchestra. Items will arrive in approximately 10 business days.
