Tag Day

TAG DAY this year was on Saturday, September 23, 2023. We looked to our local Arlington neighborhoods for financial support of Wakefield High School Music. As in past years, our neighbors showed their support!

Local neighbors receive a knock on the door from a pair of WHS music students, representing the band, choir and orchestra. We ask for support. Wakefield’s band, choir and orchestra are brimming with talent and hungry for educational and competitive opportunities. The donations received this year will connect the musical resources of our DC/NoVA area with the the vocal and instrumental talent of our students.

At the close of the Tag Day 2019, Wakefield music department students walked, talked, played and sang their way to more than $20,000 in donations. That’s not including online and mail-in donations.  Donations in 2022 came close to the 2019 total!

Thank you to all the parent drivers, admin team who counted and double counted, folks who put out signs, all the students who walked the routes, and the bucket brigade teams who sang, played music, tossed flags and pounded the pavement.

All Tag Day donations are divided evenly between the band, choir, and orchestra programs at Wakefield High School in Arlington, VA. Thank you for supporting Wakefield music!
