Dear Parents and Friends,

Hi Nitschmann Band & Orchestra Families!

I hope that everyone is well.  I just wanted to give you a quick update regarding our Fun Pasta fundraiser.

All orders are to be placed online. The deadline was extended by the company until April 30.

Great News!  Nitschmann Middle School Band is fundraising with Fun Pasta Fundraising!

We’re raising money for music, trips, and instruments and our goal for each seller is to sell 10 bags!  The pasta selection is affordable and selling is fun and simple.  And best of all, our group can earn up to 50% profit!

What is Fun Pasta?

Fun Pasta is pasta shaped like the holidays, sports, collegiate team logos, and more.  The colorful brochure features a wide variety of shapes that will appeal to everyone!

How can you help?

SHARE our Fun Pasta Brochure with neighbors, friends, and co-workers!

Every sale helps support our group and gets us closer to our goal.  The products are healthy, fun, and affordable – and make great gifts, too!

SHARE our Webpage Link on Facebook, Twitter, and Email!

Out-of-town relatives and friends can now order directly from the company and WE GET THE CREDIT!  40% of these sales go directly to us! (excludes shipping cost).   There is a flat rate shipping charge of $6.95, but they ship within a couple of days, and our relatives can easily support our group!

Anything else you need to know?

Have Fun, Eat Pasta, Raise Money!  And remember:


Order and Money Collection Envelope are DUE:   April 25, 2020

Gertrude Hawk Candy

Hello Instrumental Music Parents,Our Gertrude Hawk fundraiser is in full swing! Variety  boxes of chocolate will be available for purchase at the upcoming band meeting on September 18th. Co-Chairs, Cheryl Fritz and Linda O’Brien, will be at the meeting to help you get started and to answer questions. We will also be taking pre-orders for single flavor boxes. Orders will be placed, monthly, following each meeting. If you can’t attend the meeting and would like to purchase a variety box or pre-order a single flavor,  please contact us to make arrangements. 

Please note, pre-orders require payment at the time the order is placed, per fundraising policy. All Boxes, variety or single flavor, must be purchased as full 48 count box – we are not permitted to divide into smaller quantities.

How does this fundraiser work? It’s easy!!

Variety Boxes of Gertrude Hawk chocolate bars will be available for purchase at the upcoming meeting.  Select the quantity of boxes you’d like to sell, pay in full via cash or check and receive your chocolate bars at time of purchase. Then you sell your chocolate bars for $1 each to family, friends and co-workers, etc.  Since you have already paid for them, you keep the proceeds. Easy right? Variety boxes (48 assorted bars) are available for purchase at a cost of $48 per box. For every box sold, $15 will go to your child’s Fairshare account. IE – You purchase one box of variety bars at a cost of $48 which you pay in full at time of receipt. We will then record $15 to your child’s Fairshare account. That amount will be placed in their account whether you choose to sell them all for $1 a piece, give them away as gifts, or eat them all yourself. As you sell the bars, you earn your money back. It’s that simple! For our newcomers, Fairshare accounts are your child’s portion of fundraising efforts. Our Treasurers will explain this in more detail at our meetings.Happy fundraising!
