KFHS Choirs Admin Support

My students need a color printer to help us save money long-term. We have several events a year that require color prints of maps, posters, and more, and these print jobs are always outsourced, which is costly.

My Students

KFHS Choirs serve hundreds of students each day. They are from grades 7 through 12 and love singing! The Women's Chorus is open to all FHS women without audition. The focus of Women's Chorus is the sisterhood of singing and exploring many fun styles of music, from classical through barbershop harmony and novelty numbers. Members will learn the basics of vocal technique and sight-reading in order to become functional, confident singers. Women’s Chorus performs at KFHS concerts and competes at OMEA Large Group contest.

Men's Chorus is open to all FHS men without audition.

My Project

The KFHS Choir department hosts several events each year, all of which require color printing. At this point, we outsource all this printing to a local printer. This limits our flexibility in terms of quantity and turnaround time. This not only leads to higher printing costs but also creates waste as every order must be overestimated because we cannot "get more" in a hurry as the event approaches.

We need a color printer.

Having the ability to color print in-house will reduce the operational costs for our events, allowing more profit for the choir program annually. We hope you will help us in this cause.
