Support special needs children and the Creek Band!

We have been invited to participate in a fundraiser in partnership with the Texas Elks Association! Your student will be coming home with raffle tickets this week to sell….the raffle funds go help provide grants for special needs children summer camps as well as provide grants for medical procedures. From the money earned that CCHS band and guard sell, we will be gifted 30% of those funds.

With the percentage of funds being donated to us, we will use for things such as scholarships, lessons, marching band design and winter guard needs!

Your student will come home with a small bundle of tickets and we ask that you help us get that sold to the community! Mr. Morales will be sending these home this week with the students. Please be on the look out! Money and any unsold tickets will be due back to Mr Morales by February 1st.

Thank you for all you do for our students! Please let me know if you have any questions.
