TMHS Choir Flag Scholarship Program

Choir has an amazing fundraising opportunity & we are welcoming you to participate in our flag fundraiser! This fundraiser allows the choir student to earn scholarship money toward paying for choir trips, banquet, and other choir activities. The student will earn $2 in scholarship funds per flag that they place and pick up at homes in surrounding neighborhoods per holiday to use towards choir expenses. If you place 50 flags, you can earn $100 in scholarship money towards choir expenses! This can potentially amount to enough scholarship money to cover the trips, banquet & other choir activities.


This fundraiser consists of picking up flags at a storage unit and placing them in sleeves in front of homes that have signed up to participate. It usually takes approximately one hour to put out 50 flags. Approximately one week later, you will pick up and roll the flags neatly and return to the school at the designated times. We do this five times a year on certain national holidays. We hope you participate! It is a great way to make all the fun things choir offers affordable.


***For more info, check out the flag fundraiser website at www.schoolspiritflags.com or email us at tmhsflags@gmail.com. Also, make sure you are signed up on Charms to receive emails that will be sent with sign up details before each holiday.
