Citrus Sale

Congratulations to the YHS Bands and Orchestras on another successful Citrus Sale!  After a month of selling and a week of sorting through and tabulating orders (A HUGE THANK YOU to all the parent volunteers!) the results are in.  Thanks to all for your help!

What Is Our Fundraising Used For?

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. Funds generated from the Tag Sale and Swing Dance also benefit the band general fund.  We are fortunate to be able to provide these musical opportunities to our students!  Thanks to all for helping us do so.

Citrus Delivery Monday 12/19

The citrus delivery date is Monday 12/19. All students are required to pick up their ENTIRE order on this day.  Please mark your calendars!  WE ARE IN NEED OF PARENT VOLUNTEERS.  Parent and student volunteers will be needed from 7:00 – 11:00am to help unload the trucks, and again from 2:00 – 7:00pm to help students assemble and pick up their orders. Please e-mail  Mrs. Kluga if you are available.


Congratulations To Our Area All-State Musicians!

Five members of our band program represented YCSD this past week at the Westchester County School Music Association’s Area All State festival. Based on their spring 2016 NYSSMA scores, top music students from across Westchester are invited to participate in an honor band, orchestra, or choir.  These ensembles are open to 10th-12th graders only, rehearse with an esteemed college music educator, and present a concert at SUNY Purchase.  The concert took place this past Thursday.  Congratulations to these YHS Band members on this fantastic musical achievement!
