Fund-raising

We are extremely proud of the high quality of the musical experience we are able to offer at Walnut Hills. We have a dedicated music staff committed to ensuring that these opportunities continue to be available to our students. Our administration and Alumni Foundation have been very supportive of our music department and its programs. However, we would be unable to maintain this commitment without funding resources which go beyond what can be provided by the school budget. What we have been able to accomplish over the years has only been possible through the additional support provided by student and parent participation in supplemental fundraising.

How YOU Can Help

Parental support and participation is vital to the success of our efforts. The Music Department engages in a number of annual and ongoing fundraising efforts which we encourage everyone to participate in to the best of their ability. Listed below are some of the fundraising options we offer during the year. Look for additional information to come home with your student from their teachers.

PLEASE PARTICIPATE FULLY TO THE EXTENT YOU ARE ABLE!

Ongoing:
  • BIGG’S/REMKE’S CARDS
    Obtain a Bigg’s/Remke’s Gift Card encoded with our school number, preload it with funds, use it when you purchase your groceries, and we receive 4% of the total you spend. Gift cards are available at concerts and in the music office from Amy Forrester (363-8582).
  • KROGER REWARDS PROGRAM
    Similar to the Bigg’s program, you link your Kroger Plus Card directly to WHIP’s account. Every time you spend $$ at Kroger, we all win. Instructions available in the Music Office or check your Monday WHIP e-mail.
  • BOX TOPS 4 EDUCATION
    It’s more than just cereal! You’ll find Box Top coupons on Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Old El Paso, Kleenex, and Ziploc products, just to name a few. For a complete listing, go to www.boxtops4education.com. Just cut out the box tops coupons and collect them in a Ziploc bag or envelope. When it’s full, send it in with your child and have him or her give it to their music teacher. You may also place them in Amy Forrester’s mailbox in the main office. We receive 10 cents for each one we submit!
  • MAGAZINE RENEWALS
    You can renew your magazine subscriptions anytime through the Music Department, and 40% of your renewal price will go to support our music programs. Go on-line at http://apmags.com and select the magazine store option from the homepage – it’s easy!
