Virtual Band Day & Band Day Stats

A Big Thank You to all who helped support band day this past Saturday. As you might know, our boosters try to raise $50,000 annually to help pay for instruments, music, guest clinicians, jazz II, supplement marching band, winter percussion, winter guard, and much much more! This year we have the additional $30k push to raise for new uniforms. Our initial band day pulled in $12,600! Thank you all so much for your help in this great fundraising start.

We are continuing the push with Virtual Band Day. Please read below.

Virtual Band Day is off to a terrific start!  In just 24 hours we have raised almost $2000.  To meet and surpass our goal of $5000 we need all of our Band and Guard students to participate.  Right now only 57% of the students have registered and only 15% have sent out 5 or more emails.
