It is that time of year again when we begin looking at the future of the Davidson Band Program. As we all get ready to schedule classes for next school year, we hope you will take a moment and complete this Intention Form to alert us of your plans for next year. This is not a firm commitment, but it is helpful to get an accurate picture of what our band program will look like so that we can start the work of planning all aspects off the 2024-25 Davidson Band Program.
All students currently in band are asked to complete the form by February 9th.
*Report time is variable, but pep band games usually last 6-9pm.

One of the most successful fundraisers for the Hilliard Band departments is our Tag Day. Our students will be out in the community asking for support, but of course if you would like to donate online you are welcome to do that as well. If you are not planning to be home, you are also encouraged to leave a donation at your front door and the students will know to pick that up in your absence.
Tag Day will be help on the morning of August 26th, 2023. Thanks so much for your support!

Now is a great time to start planning ahead! We do have all our events for the Fall Marching Band season updated in our Google Calendar. Please start there and plan your fall accordingly.
Remember – Band Camp is not easily negotiated. Please arrange to be with us for the entire 3 weeks.
There are so many opportunities to get involved and support the band program as a parent volunteer. The largest area of need is our concessions team that runs both the home and visitors concession stand throughout the entire fall athletic season. This includes all football and soccer games (4 days a week until mid-November). It is a huge undertaking that requires over 400 volunteering shifts, but profits between $20,000-$30,000 each season.
Please see our Music Booster page to get involved and reach out to the lead parents in any area of interest.
***Note- in order to volunteer, you must have a Volunteer Badge approved by the Hilliard School District. It costs $17 and is good for 3 years. Apply for that badge here: https://www.hilliardschools.org/schools/volunteer/.
