Patron Donation Drive
Each year the band program provides the band students many exciting opportunities to pursue their music education in unique ways that fit each student. Ranger Marching Band begins the season with what the kids describe as one of the highlights of the year…Band Camp. The excitement continues with Bandtasia in the fall and then we move into concert season in the winter and spring. 2018 began with the band students enjoying a trip to Disneyworld to perform and participate in clinics, while sneaking in some time for fun with their friends.
The band program provides the band students an opportunity for intense practice mixed with fun and friendship. Those components result in a camaraderie among the band students which shows in their precision on the marching field and in the concert halls, but also in the fun the students have in the stands at the football games or during long practice sessions.
As budgets tighten and fundraising becomes more and more difficult, the band program relies on the generosity of the community to help us continue the traditions of the band program in a way that is affordable to all students and band families. We hope that you will help us and financially support the Forest Hills Central Band Program in its efforts to provide these important programs to the Forest Hills Central Band students. Please consider a donation to the Forest Hills Central Band Program. All donors will be recognized as a Band Patron in our concert programs. You are welcome to make a donation online via PayPal or through the mail.
Our goal this year is to raise $3,500. Thank you for your continued support!
