A Little Goes a Long Way: Support Your Band Family

The Falcon Brigade and Diamonds is an all-inclusive and active program that proudly represents Staley High School at multiple marching band competitions, jazz festivals, colorguard events and community occasions throughout each school year and the summer months. We appreciate the funding provided by our school district, however the rising costs of transportation, equipment and the need for supplemental contracted services or instruction require that we employ fundraising efforts to ensure the most educational experiences possible.
