A: Yes! Mr. Raskin plays sports and is a musician. You can do both activities while in high school. In fact, we recommend it!
Q: Does it cost money to be in pep band?
A: Yes. There is apparel that pep band members must wear to games. There are a variety of items with the same logo so there is sure to be something that fits any budget. Occasionally we take field trips that have a fee associated but can sometimes be paid for through fundraisers. (If finances are a concern, please join pep band and speak with Mr. Raskin about the Band Gives Back program).
