DONATE TO THE LHS BAND PROGRAM!
The Langley High School band program offers an incredibly enriching experience for its students. Families, friends and local businesses help support the needs of the bands through hundreds of hours of volunteering as well as through fundraising. Through fundraising, the Langley band program is able to purchase new instruments, repair equipment and older instruments, provide instrument-specific sectionals instruction by professional musicians (a huge factor in students' musical development), buy marching band uniforms, and subsidize the cost of band competitions, events and transportation.
Our Langley High School band concert programs include a sponsors section that lists by giving level the names of individuals, families and businesses that donate $50 or more to the LHS band program (unless requested to give anonymously). Our 5K website page highlights sponsors all year long, and 5K sponsors are highlighted periodically in band communications and Langley's weekly PTSA newsletter. The Langley Band Association is a 501 (c) (3) organization; all donations are fully tax deductible.

Come to Friday night football games and watch the Marching Saxons perform at half-time. Winter and spring concerts, performed in the Langley High School Auditorium, are free and open to all.
The band holds two main fundraisers each year:
Tag Day is a long-standing tradition among high school bands and is our main fundraiser. Tag Day is well-received in our community, and occurs on a Saturday in September (usually a week or two after school starts). Students wear their marching season show t-shirt or another Langley shirt and walk door-to-door in pairs asking for donations to the band program. (They leave an informational door-tag if residents aren’t home, resulting in the “Tag Day” event name.) Students are driven to/through neighborhoods in the Langley boundary. In addition, other students are stationed at tables at local shopping areas. Others perform in small ensembles at local shopping centers.
Bands on the Run 5K
The 5K is a recent event Langley HS and Cooper MS bands began in order to help fund the needs associated with the growing band program in the Langley pyramid. Looking at the success and growth of the area elementary school and Cooper MS band programs, we saw the need for the purchase of additional marching band uniforms, percussion instruments and equipment, and musical instruments, especially those not often purchased by families, such as tubas or English horns.
The annual Bands on the Run 5K starts and ends at Langley on a Sunday morning each April. Band members, families, friends and runners from the community enjoy a beautiful morning and DJ entertainment, snacks and vendors afterwards. Money is raised from both the sponsorships and the participant registrations.
