85% of the funds generated from the Citrus Sale go directly into student personal accounts, toward their spring festival trip. 15% go into the band “general fund” and are used to pay for items that benefit all band students. Some examples include: chaperones for our festival trips (we can’t go on trips without chaperones, and are not allowed to roll chaperone fees into student costs), and band events and awards. This year funds enabled us to host the Ice Cream Social, will be used to host the Brentwood HS Wind Ensemble on 11/23, and for senior awards and scholarships at the end of the year. Funds generated from the Tag Sale and Swing Dance also benefit the band general fund. We are fortunate to be able to provide these opportunities to our students! Thanks to all for helping us do so.
