LETTER TO THE EDITOR | South Whidbey sales a holiday spirit success
The students in the South Whidbey High School Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble and Choir thank all the community members, organizations and businesses that generously supported their poinsettias and mistletoe performing arts fundraiser.
A significant increase in participation by businesses helped boost sales this year, at a time when the funds are needed most to support the music program.
This fundraiser taught the students to work cooperatively, helped them gain confidence in selling skills and showed them what it means to be a liaison between their school and their community.
They also experienced the direct connection between efforts and results. Additionally, plants purchased for donation to the Senior Center and the Good Cheer Food Bank meant the students learned a way they could give back to their community as the community supported their music program.
The success of the sale showed wide-based community support for music education, at a level of excellence, and recognized the exemplary achievement of these dedicated musicians who reside in a community that cares. This is truly the holiday spirit.
