Fuel the Power Band
The socio-economic make-up of our Band Program is 57% free and reduced lunch. Also, we have numerous children that are classified as homeless. In an effort to offset this, we started the Fuel the Power Band Program. Our students are fed meals that are donated by local businesses and community members before every single performance and many rehearsals. This also includes our trip to Grand Nationals. We always recognize these philanthropist for the week at every performance and rehearsal. This ensures our students to be well nourished throughout the season and helps maintain health and well-being.
