How would you like to wake up to a yard filled with candy stuffed eggs? We have to give a round of applause for the cleverness of the Egg My Yard fundraiser that the award-winning Arapahoe High School Band is doing. It’s the first year for the fundraiser but based on the energy and enthusiasm from both the band members and the community it’s bound to be back again next year.
On the evening of April 20th, the Arapahoe High School Band students will stop by and hide treat-filled eggs in your front yard. They will even leave a note on your door telling your kiddos how many eggs to look for! The eggs will have an assortment of different kinds of candy, and little toys in them. It’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your kids’ faces and some extra sleep to you.
All of the proceeds will go to directly to the Arapahoe Band Boosters (a 501c3organization). The award-winning band, supported by their booster organization, employees more than 18 world-class staff members who work with students on a daily basis both in class, on the marching field, and in the winter programs of winter guard and winter percussion. They have many alumni that return to the program to do their internship/ volunteer with our program as they go through college and forward in their musical education as well.
Judging by the awards that they’re received, they’re doing a great job!
- Marching band placed 8th at State in November 2018.
- The percussion ensemble (1st in CO) is currently in Dayton, OH at the World Championships hoping to bring home another award, the AHS percussion ensemble is currently in 6th place in the world!
- Winter Guard won state in 2018
- Wind Ensemble rated “excellent at the Concert Festival in February
Orders need to be in by Sunday, April 14th. It is going to be all hands on deck to get our orders delivered! The orders have already surpassed what they imagined but as long as they have orders, they will be hiding the eggs for kiddos to find on Easter morning.
