UPDATE!! We started our Cheesecake sale yesterday. Here are the details:
The sale began Wednesday and will last until Friday, Feb. 1st. The cheesecakes will be delivered to the high school on Tuesday, Feb. 12th (just in time for Valentine’s Day!).
They are restaurant quality cheesecakes, weighing approximately 4 lbs. and are presliced into 14 restaurant size portions. They are less expensive than any bakery or restaurant:
Cost per cake: Cost per slice:
There are 14 delectable flavors to choose from, including a Variety which features 7 different flavors, two slices of each.
Thawed cheesecakes can be frozen more than once. Shelf life in the refrigerator is 5 days. They can be frozen for up to 6 months.
The Cheesecakes are delivered frozen from the Chicago, Il. area (Gormet’s Delight, Inc.) and are made with the highest quality, freshest available natural ingredients with no preservatives added.
Sell the most cheesecakes in your choir class and receive $25 cash. (4 choirs at $25 per choir).
Also, anyone who sells 4 cheesecakes will have their name put in a drawing (every additional 4 cakes sold–your name will go in again.) We will draw 3 names and give away $50, $50 and $100 cash to three lucky winners!
UPDATE: Brazil Passports needed NOW! Did you remember your passport today?! We need your Passports ASAP. Just bring them in and we will make a copy of it and give it back to you. The airline needs this info. ASAP. If you have a parent going, we need their passport as well.
UPDATE!! Chamber Choir will rehearse this Sunday from 1pm until 3pm at the latest, due to conflicts with the orchestra’s performance at the Michigan Music Conference.
The Collage Concert is coming up quickly. The date is Sunday, February 10th at 3pm in the MSHS Performing Arts Center (PAC). This is a really unique concert that features not only all of our choir students but the top performers in the choir, band and orchestra, chosen by audition. Their is no applause between numbers as the we move swiftly from one number to the next.
No music theory today, as we kicked off our cheesecake sale.
