  • $1 Hat Day on Tuesday - Each Tuesday this month, students may donate $1 and wear a hat during school.

Shoe Drive - We are still collecting gently used shoes in our main lobby for Fort Mill High School Marching Band.

The Fort Mill High School Band, https://www.fortmillhsband.com/, is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser on September 20 to November 21, 2018 to raise funds for the Band’s trip to the Harrogate Music Festival in England in April 2019. Fort Mill is proud to be one of the select bands from around the world invited to perform. The Fort Mill Band will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, in collaboration with an organization called Funds2Orgs. Those dollars will be used to ship instruments and uniforms to England for the festival.
