Donations  

Music Programs cost
more than $185,000.  donations pay for about
50%. Fundraising efforts make up the difference

There are many additional expenses associated with producing the various ensembles under the umbrella of the Music Department. While the Boosters work to plan fundraisers to offset these costs, the responsibility of funding this program rests with the band program at large. To ensure that all expenses related to these programs are met each year, it is necessary to determine, in advance, if the support is in place to move forward as planned. 

No student will be prevented from participating fully in these activities because of their ability or willingness to donate. Donations are tax deductible and eligible for matching funds if your employer offers this program. Donations can be made via check to the Blue Box in the Music Room or through the donation button below. Please add the names of the ensembles to which you would like your donation applied. Please contact the Band Boosters with any questions you may have.

Marching Band

No student is required to participate in the competitive marching band program, although it is highly encouraged. There are many fitness and social benefits, as well as the fulfillment of the required semesters of P.E. This group maintains a schedule like any other athletic activity on campus. There are regular practices after school, additional rehearsals and competitions that occur on weekends. The activities begin on Aug. 12 with Band Camp and conclude the weekend before Thanksgiving.
