FanAngel Fundraiser

We have LAUNCHED our fundraiser! This means you can share your child's profile on social media as well as any preloaded emails were sent out. It's not too late to enter contact info for potential supporters. Thank you so much for helping support our program!


We would like all students to participate, and our hope is that each student is able to raise $125. If you would like to opt out by making a donation of $125 payments can be made via Charms using the ¨Shopping Cart¨ icon, or by sending a check made out to Scoggins MS Band Booster Club.

Things parents should know about our fundraiser on FanAngel:

  1. FanAngel uses the industry's most secure privacy and protection standards. Email addresses and phone numbers are never shared or sold.
  2. FanAngel’s automation system will send supporters up to three reminders after launch: one after 3 days, one after 10 days, and lastly 4 days prior to the end of the campaign. When the supporter has donated, they will not receive additional reminders. Please know that the supporter has the ability to unsubscribe at any time.

If you paid, but for some reason our records did not indicate so please email Mr. Davis the paypal receipt or let him know what check # cleared your bank so we can update our records.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Students will need their band T-shirt for our Beginner Showcase performance on October 21st!

Candy Donation

While out and about if you would like to pick up a bag of candy to donate our students would much appreciate it! We use this as rewards for our "Grandaddy Champions", and other fun contests.

Please keep an eye out for gluten and peanut free items so we can have viable options for all of our students!

Thank you!

Any and all donations to help support our band hall, students and directors would be greatly appreciated!

Covid Positive or Quarantine?

If your child has to stay home due to being Covid positive or is quarantining we want to make band as little stress as possible. Please use the guidelines below to help your child feel at ease with expectations:

Feeling Ill: Your child does not need to practice or worry about what is going on in band. We will catch them up once they return.

Quarantine or Asymptomatic: Google Meet links will be posted in Canvas for your student to join if they are feeling well enough to participate.
