Tag Day 2019


Tag Day is one of the biggest fundraising events for the Pride of Herndon Band!  ALL HHS Band students , with HHS marching band and guard students, dressed in their band or guard uniforms, walk door-to-door in their neighborhoods handing out flyers with information about the band and tags with the concert schedule for the band (hence the name – Tag Day) while asking for contributions.  If no one is home, the students leave a mail-in envelope. Students can also send contribution requests to relatives and friends.


Our Herndon High community is divided into several areas. Students are given a specific route to complete within their area. Students meet at their area’s host house in the morning, carrying their uniforms with them. They are given breakfast (provided by area parents), put together their paperwork, go over instructions, divide into groups and are assigned their routes. The students then change into their uniforms, and begin their routes.  Parent volunteers in each area drive students to and from their routes. Students report back to the area host house at lunch, and go back out after lunch if their route is not completed. Each student will hear from their Area Chair before the big event to go over final details and to answer questions.
