TAG DAY 2016: Parent Volunteers Needed

Please mark your calendars for TAG DAY, Saturday September 17th. It is the most important fundraiser for the JEB Stuart music department in that it benefits all students in Orchestra, Band and Chorus. It is an annual September event in which music students canvas the neighborhoods to request donations for Stuart’s fantastic music ensembles. Every year the students raise over $30k in one day of fundraising. The funds are then divided between the 3 music disciplines depending on the hours of participation from the students/parents in that music discipline.

Orchestra parents are needed to make this fundraiser a success. We need parents to act as drivers for the day. Each parent driver takes 4 students in their vehicle and drives a designated route through the community. Parents' hours are also included in the division of the funds so please volunteer for this very important event. You may sign-up as a parent driver at this link:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0949a9ac29a02-stuart1

All orchestra students are expected to participate Saturday September 17th from 8a to ~3:30p. This fundraiser provides the money for yearly expense of uniforms, instrument purchase and repair, transportation to festivals and performances, scholarships, guest clinicians, and participation fees in competitions and festivals.  Please wear comfortable shoes, nice jeans, and your orchestra t-shirt.
The Orchestral Department thanks you in advance for your support of this very important fundraiser!
