How to make it to New York?

1.      Take advantage of band fund raisers. We offer a number of opportunities to earn money for your trip, everything from poinsettia sales, catalog item sales, Snap-rise, mattress sales… if students will make an effort they can take the burden off their families. (note- several students have already paid 100% of the trip by through band fundraising- even if you don’t go all in you can make a big dent if you try)

2.      Concession work- we will set up a least one home game during football season that parents can work to put money in their student’s trip account. Students may also work at JV and Junior High games to add to their account. Parents and students may also work basketball concessions to earn trip funds. When a student or parents works we put funds in the student’s trip fund.

3.      Odd Jobs- babysitting, yard work (mowing or raking leaves), poop scooping yards, dog sitting… are all quick easy ways to earn money.

4.      Letter writing- tell family and friends what you are saving for, there are so many people in Grandview that are willing to help- but you have to ask.

5.      Start a trip jar- instead of buying that soda or treat, drop those quarters in your trip jar and you will be surprised how fast they add up. Go to the early show and put the difference between a matinee ticket and primetime ticket in the jar…. You get the idea. Saved money is earned money.
