Fundraising Goal

Parents and Students,

Please take an opportunity to see the possibilities of the future FHS band uniform. (B3)  In order to achieve the students goal of getting new uniforms for the fall of 2017 the band will need to have very successful  fundraisers throughout the year.  I anticipate the total cost of 1 uniform being  $425.  With the number of the band anticipated to be over 75 next year that will be a lot of fundraising. If we do not meet our goal for the fall of 2016/2017 we will shoot for the fall of 2018.
