SHARE YOUR STORY

Everybody has a story and we want to hear yours! Were you in a musical ensemble in high school or college? Did you play in the band or orchestra? Perform in the musical? Dig out that yearbook, and let's relive the good ol' days. We are looking to making our band community more unified and a great way to do this is for musicians to meet musicians! We want everyone to know how great our band parents are, but more importantly, we want our band family to be inspired by all of the talent out there. Share your story using the link below:

M.A.R.C.H. 2021 PACKETS DISTRIBUTED

Please save the date March 13 on your family calendars. This is the service date and we need all students to participate. Here are your marching orders! On Thursday, 1/28 we distributed fundraising packets to all face to face band students.


Here is the link: https://fultonk12-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/moonm_fultonschools_org/EZHHcLmiQ2BAiI6kzl2ItNQB_AzdG8-aT__hacXXzjG8Tw?e=aTCjyK


Students are to start requesting donations right away. We will accept cash, checks or online donations at RoswellBand.com All donations are tax-deductible. Our goal with this fundraiser is to raise $30,000. It is very possible and completely attainable with your help! The best part is 100% of the funds raised go directly to our band program.


This is an all band fundraiser.

(Classroom bands, Pep Band, IDL, and Color Guard)


The 4th annual M.A.R.C.H (Musicians Acting with Responsibility, Compassion, and Hard work) Community Service Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 13. This is our ONLY scheduled fundraiser for the band this school year.


All of our band students are asked to work 4-6 hours of community service in Roswell to beautify our parks, rivers, schools, libraries, cemeteries, and other areas. We are requesting that every band student participate in the community event by volunteering to work the day of March 13 AND by asking for monetary donations for their day of service.


We will adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines as recommended by the CDC and Fulton County schools. More information will be announced as we get closer to the actual date.
