Students will have several opportunities to fund raise money to offset the total cost of trips, banquets and more. All funds earned go in to an individual account for each student.

Spread the Word to Friends, Family, Neighbors – really, Anyone!
BUY your New Mattresses at GBN on Saturday, March 19th!

Fundraising Opportunity for Students  to increase their Earning Fund Accounts (EFAs)

The Mattress Sale is coming to the GBN Cafeteria for ONE DAY ONLY: 

Saturday, March 19, from 10 am – 5 pm.

Students will receive credit toward their EFAs for any Sales resulting from their Referrals.

Important Updates: On March 8th & 9th in the curricular choir classes, students will receive Yard Sale Signs and Flyers with Coupons*. Theatre students and those not in curricular choir, see Chad Davidson or Andy Wallace to request Signs & Flyers. Make sure that students fill out their full name on each flyer prior to distributing to friends, family, others, in order to receive EFA credit.

If no flyer is present, the purchaser will be asked who referred them to the Mattress Sale upon checkout. The purchaser can give the student’s name at that time, as well. *However the flyer must be presented at purchase in order to receive the incentive coupon.

District 225 Employees are given special discount incentives and have already received a different flyer to be used toward their purchases.  

Note: Flyers may not be handed out at the school, on the day of the sale. Flyers are to be handed out in advance of the sale &/or off-site.
