Band camp is held for two weeks before school, beginning the middle of August. There are a few days held especially for Rookies -- we love Rookies(!) -- before full Band Camp starts. For now, find fuller information on the "News" page.
Tag Day 2017 - Saturday, September 9
Tag Day is the primary fundraiser of the entire year. Students go door-to-door in pairs in the Edison community. In full Marching Eagles uniform, they interact with supporters and neighbors, explaining the role of the band, reuniting with alumni, and asking for donations. Students leave a "tag" at each home with Marching Eagles and concert band performance dates. Parents drive support cars and shuttle students from the high school in shifts. Following Tag Day, donations can also be made online from the Home page.
Volunteers for driving (and other functions) are essential!!
More information for volunteers, along with instructions for students and drivers will appear soon.
Band and color guard students in good standing are invitied to participate in the spring trip. The destination, schedule, and cost will be announced annually. Trips were to Williamsburg, Virginia in 2014, to Charlotte, NC in 2016, and to Orlando, Florida, in 2015 and 2017.
