Tag Day a Success

This is the last Tag Day post you have to read for this year! Our heartfelt thanks to all of the wonderful kids and parents who made Tag Day possible. We had over 140 students deployed to various Woodson district neighborhoods in a fleet of 76 driving vehicles throughout the day, as well as a small legion working within the school to make the kids look sharp in their uniforms, keep everyone well-fed and hydrated, count and tabulate all of the donations (to include pennies and batting cage tokens), as well as help control all of the papers and literally figure out where everyone was on the map “parent traffic control”.

Despite an ongoing pandemic and over half of the band completely new to the Tag Day experience, we had the biggest Tag Day Woodson Band and Guard has had to date, suppressing our previous record-breaking year in 2019!!  We heard nothing but compliments about how well our students represented the school while they were out and about, both from the parent volunteers and Woodson neighbors. Due to everyone’s hard work and coordination, we brought in almost $37,926.69 during the day plus a donation left at my door, so we are clearly over $38,000 for our band and guard program IN ONE DAY!!!

We will likely continue to see additional donations come in as we left a lot of flyers and envelopes in doors for folks who weren’t home. Again, thank you so much for your commitment to the kids. If you want to help us out next year, we’ll gladly take you onto the committee.

In our case, it doesn’t just take a village, but a small to medium size city!

Your grateful Tag Day Committee,
