Music Boosters selling poinsettias, wreaths, garlands
Parents and staff members can support CCSD 89 musicians at all levels by ordering poinsettias, wreaths, or garlands from the Music Boosters Association. Orders for wreaths are due October 24. Orders for poinsettias and plants are due November 15.
The Music Boosters are selling poinsettias, azaleas, and cyclamen flowers, as well as wreaths and garlands, from Schaefer Greenhouses. Prices start at $8 for a small poinsettia.
Orders can be placed by printing out the form found here: http://bit.ly/2MY2FIW and returning it to a music teacher or at any CCSD 89 school’s main office. Checks should be made out to “District 89 MBA”.
Orders will be available for pick up at Glen Crest Middle School, 725 Sheehan Avenue, Glen Ellyn, between noon and 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 7.
If you do not want a plant for yourself, but would like to support CCSD 89 music students, you can order a plant to be used as a decoration for the district’s winter concerts. After the concerts, the plants will be donated to a local nursing home. Donations to the Music Boosters are also accepted.
The CCSD 89 winter orchestra concerts will be held at 6 and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 10, at Glen Crest Middle School. The CCSD 89 winter chorus concert will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, December 12, at Glen Crest. The CCSD 89 winter band concert will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, December 17, at Glen Crest.
The poinsettia, wreath, and garland sales support the Music Boosters, which fundraise for music scholarships, instrument repairs, and assist with music programs in all CCSD 89 schools.
