Subject: High School Music Program at Deptford Township High School










Dear Sir/Madam:










Over the years, our taxes go up and school budgets seem to be cut to the bare bones.  This is happening all over the country and is no different at Deptford Township High School.  Although it’s an average size school, we have an extensive music program that includes Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Choir, and Women’s Choir, as well as our competitive groups, the Jazz Band, the Marching Band, Indoor Percussion, and Indoor Color Guard.  Our students and staff work very hard and have been extremely successful.  Just this November, our Marching Band placed 7th at the Atlantic Coast Tournament of Bands held in Dover , Delaware and  were crowned the United States Scholastic Band Association Group I New Jersey State and National Champions!  In 2006 and 2007, our Jazz Band placed 3rd in the State of New Jersey.










Some of our expenditures, such as transportation, are covered by the school board budget, while many other expenses are not.  This requires extensive fund raising, or direct payments, from the students and their families.  This year alone, our students must pay $300.00 just to participate in the Marching Band.  Unfortunately, some expenses are even beyond our fund raising capabilities and that is why we are coming to you.  Did you know:










                *              A new Alto Saxophone costs approximately $1000





                *              A Pearl Snare Drum costs at least $400





                *              A Marimba can cost between $4,000-$12,000 (depending upon quality)










We, the members of the Deptford Band Parents Association, are determined to enable our children the opportunity to continue with these worthwhile music ensembles.  Each ensemble has expenses such as competition fees, uniforms, new instruments, repair of existing instruments, for which we do not have the extra money to support all of those items.  We are therefore, coming to the community for help.  We need help from businesses and individuals alike.










We respectfully ask if you would be willing to help sponsor some of our music program so it can continue now and into the future.  Any help is appreciated and tax deductible, but knowing you helped enrich the lives of hundreds of high school students in our township is priceless.










If you wish to make a sponsorship donation, please complete the attached form and mail back your donation in the envelope provided.  If you have any questions, please contact one of the following individuals.
