Tag Days

WHAT IS TAG DAYS?

Tag Days is a fundraising event where band students stand outside local businesses wearing spirit wear playing music to solicit donations. The customers love the music and are compelled to drop coins and dollars into our buckets. In exchange for their donations, students hand them a “tag” thanking them for supporting our band program. TAG DAYS provides a big opportunity to raise a lot of money in just 3 days! Plus, you get to have a lot of fun playing music and hanging out with friends while raising money to support the band program.


WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

Our Tag Days schedule is complete. It’s time to sign-up and put our plan into motions. Because the success of this fundraiser lies solely on the amount of time we spend soliciting donations at local businesses in our community, we need everyone to get involved. It is our expectations that ALL students sign up for at least 1 time slot over the 3-day event.


COMMUNITY SERVICE / TRIP INCENTIVE

ALL students participating in TAG DAYS will receive Silver Cord or NHS credit hours. We have 16 businesses offering 400+ service hours. If you are going on the New York trip, 4 hours of service hours are required, and those hours earn you credit towards your trip.


WE NEED PARENTS TOO!

We require 1 parent/adult supervisor at each location during TAG DAYS. This is for the safety and protection of our students.


ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS

On the day of the event, student and parent volunteers are required to arrive at the band room one-half hour prior to their post time to check-in, grab their instruments and get instructions from team leaders before heading to their post. Volunteers are responsible for getting themselves to their post and back. Anyone needing a ride should inquire ahead of time. At the end of the shift, volunteers must return to the band room to sign out. Parents are to bring money collected back to the band room to be counted. Students will NOT be responsible for transporting money.


QUESTIONS?

We understand that there may be a lot of questions about this event. We hope to answer all those questions at some point along the way. Additional instructions will be available closer to the event time. However, do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you need answered now.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
