Re: Letters going Home Asking Money for Reeds
Ok, awesome! Thank you!
Points to include. The opportunity to purchase reeds at school is offered as a convenience to keep parents from having to go to a music store or purchase them online. They are certainly welcomed (maybe encouraged...) to do that as well - with the caveat that there is a standard of quality that you expect in the program. Because the school is able to buy in bulk and not pay sales tax (actually a bit of a gray area as since you resell them, the students should really pay tax, but that is another thread), you are able to offer them at a slight discount. Understand that these are not school provided supplies - you are helping keep items in the hands of students that are necessary for the class but not readily available at local stores.
Hey Yellow Board! I'm looking for some feedback.
I'm teaching at a school district where the band program is new, and my boss and I are trying to have the woodwind students pay $2 per reed so that they understand responsibility and accountability. Our admin is totally supportive and is asking for us to send a letter home to the parents so that they're aware of the charge.
How would you write that letter?
Thanks in advance!!! : )
