We are still in need of a Fundraising Chair for next School Year.
No more Fundraisers for this year with the exception of the HEB cards which are ongoing. Student Charms accounts should be updated by the end of the week reflecting fundraiser efforts.
Mr. Thibodeaux would like COBA to consider using an email fundraising campaign to raise money next year instead of sales.

For Students to access the funds from their Charms account for the New York Trip, the student needs to fill out an envelope asking Charms account money to be applied to the New York Trip.
