Due to budget restrictions, Paterson's had no marching band for an entire generation. 100 Eastside and JFK students and alumni will get together to rehearse and perform at the game this year. It will take a massive effort but the community is up to it! There are plenty of volunteers committed to lead and to play.
The excitement is building! They need uniforms and supplies. $5,000 will make it happen. We hope to get 100 donors giving $50 each. Can you help? Any size gift will be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to our kids.

We believe that if the community owns a positive vision for our schools, holds itself accountable for student outcomes and is engaged in identifying and implementing solutions, then high expectations become a part of the community culture.
