Ways to Help
Help Ms. Schmidt get the Band to DC for the Veterans Day Parade in November!
Our students were invited to perform in Washington DC at the Parade of Heroes Veterans Day Ceremony -- and they are the ONLY middle school from Texas invited to participate. We need to raise a lot of money to give EVERY child the chance to go! Please help if you can!

Also, we had some items left from our silent auction, and some of the items were pretty great, like subscriptions to Dallas Theater Center. We have created an online silent auction at https://www.32auctions.com/BucBandAuction Check it out!
