Fundraising is one of the easiest ways to put money in your student account. While students may choose whether to participate in individual fundraisers, these are offered as a means of assisting students for expenditures such as band camp, competitions, band banquet, spiritwear, winter drum line, uniforms or start earning money for next year!
There will be specific fundraisers held throughout the school year that your child can participate in. Flyers and e-mails will be sent as those fundraising opportunities are available. If you have any suggestions or questions about a specific fundraiser, our Fundraising Chairs are Michelle Azzano 314-550-9500.Ongoing fundraisers that all band students can participate in are as follows:
