Instruments aren’t cheap, uniforms need to be purchased and maintained, and travel comes with an unavoidable price tag. Because funding from the school and district is rarely enough to fully fund a program’s needs, high school bands need ways to raise money that don’t interfere with the already-tight schedules of students and band directors.
The kids love this simple and fun fundraiser – selling lollipops and supporting their band!
Speaking of these kids. They make everything worth it. They are some of the hardest working kids I have ever worked with. Things didn’t come as natural for this group this year. They fought for it. They worked for it. In doing so, they became that goofy band family that so many other groups have.
Who knew that even selling lollipops would bring them closer. The future of these kids is SO BRIGHT!
