Notes from Mr. Tison

Not much going on….just lots of singing, music theory and music history in each of our choirs!   Please take note of events coming up (Winter Retreat, Valentine Grams, Finding Neverland, etc)

As always, please consider SCRIP to continue putting some “free” money into your accounts!

Have a great week!

Mr. Tison

    • Scrip is just another term for gift cards.  Scrip fundraising is an easy, no selling program that allows families to raise money for choir activities by using gift cards, or scrip, to pay for everyday purchases.  How is works is when you purchase a gift card at face value the VMPA purchases the cards at a discount.  The difference is then split 90% to your students account and 10% to VMPA for administration. For more information on how scrip works please use this link: Scrip Bullets.  Any questions contact Chris Dornbush at cdornbush@gmail.com or  fvhsschoirscrip@gmail.com or Ken Hanson (714) 654-1525
  • Communities for Cause is another no selling fundraiser.  “Connecting the causes you care about with the places you shop.”  Donating to your school or cause has never been easier.  Simply shop with a list of local merchants supporting our program and they will donate a percent of each sale to your school/cause!  Download the app for free from the i-Tunes or Google Play App Store on your smart phone.  When you register select “FVHS Vocal Music Program” as your cause!
