    The following fundraisers are intended to help raise funds for the DHS Band and its students.  The money raised can be used for band trips, band supplies and various other band activities.

    Fundraisers going to the "General Fund" will be deposited into the general band account or DHS Band Boosters account and will benefit the band as a whole.  "Student Specific" fundraising will be deposited into a seperate account at DHS and will be reflected in CHARMS as benefitting the individual students accounts.
