Booster Club ACE Card sales

CHS Speech students:

Every year the CHS Booster Club asks all teams/groups to participate in the ACE Card sale. These cards, which provide discounts at local stores and restaurants, are the main fundraiser for the Booster Club. The Booster Club has provided our Speech program with the digital camera we use for TV News and Short Film, the stools and risers we use for Readers Theatre and Choral Reading, and fees for our participation in District and State Competitions. We need Speech students, especially those who are not involved in other activities, to step up and help sell these ACE cards.

The preliminary informational meeting for high school students will be Tuesday, August 5 at 3:30 PM in the CHS Media Center.  The meeting is to explain the sale of the ACE card and the incentives for top sellers.  On Tuesday, August 12, from 6:30-8:30 PM, there will be an ACE community “blitz." Students will be out in the Carroll community and surrounding communities to sell the cards ($20.00 per card). August 12 will also be the evening to turn in your money and return unsold cards. Even if you cannot attend the preliminary meeting, you can still sell ACE cards.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Coach Polking via text, e-mail, or Twitter.
