Sponsor Drive 2020-2021

Our annual Sponsor Drive is underway! Due to COVID concerns, we strongly encourage Band families to donate online via palmbeach.schoolcashonline.com. (Checks should be payable to “Independence Middle School.”)

Please send in sponsors and donations as soon as you get them! Sponsor forms should also be sent in for all online payments so we know who to thank!

Sponsor drive information was emailed home in early October and is available here by clicking on the links:

Sponsor donations are accepted during the entire school year, but donations eligible for sponsor prizes must be made by Monday, November 2.
