Download forms here:


WGHS Band Aides is offering scrip purchasing as another way for students to earn $$$ in their student accounts. For newer WGHS Band parents, this is another fundraiser that we offer to help pay for band camp and band trips.
What is Scrip? Scrip Sales are gift cards and can be purchased for many local and national merchants.


Each merchant offers a different % donation. For example, a Macy’s $100 gift card purchase (10% donation) will result in a $10 deposit to your student’s account. These are the same gift cards that one would purchase from the individual store or restaurant at NO EXTRA COST TO YOU. Gift cards will arrive and be distributed just before Thanksgiving in time for gift giving.

To participate, students complete the yellow order form (2-sided) brought home from band class on Mon., Oct. 22, or print the attached copy (2 pages). The selling period is Oct. 22 to Nov. 2, 2018. If you plan to participate, that is only 12 days, so students—get it done early!

Payments are due with the order form. Please make checks payable to WGHS Band-Aides. If paying by check, please send one check to cover the total order. (And please double-check your math!
