We had one really bad thing. The school district didn’t setup back to school night until after labor day on a Thursday. We meet on Tuesday

Popcorn sales began that Saturday.

It’s not appropriate to have a major fundraiser start before you can get a family to their first meeting.

This is one of the things I’m trying to push for our district. We start after Labor Day, but the back to school nights are prior to Labor Day. If we aren’t getting into those, we are missing chances to let people know about the local packs.
I get the added bonus that my son’s school is district wide so it hasn’t been covered by a default pack yet. That’s my main goal for this summer.
