Bailey Band Directors Appreciation Group needs your help!

Our three directors put so much time, energy, and heart into the award-winning Bailey Bands. So, the Directors Appreciation Group provides a “Back to School” survival treats, birthday treats, a holiday gift, and monthly meals to show our gratitude to these 3 amazing educators. To help in thanking our directors, you can sign up to help with the monthly meals or you can send in a donation of any dollar amount. You can send in cash or check (made out to Lucy Cruz) that will go towards birthday and holiday gifts. Please put cash or check in a sealed envelope with your name, your child’s name, and have your student give it to their director.

The Bailey Bands have a long tradition of music excellence that is recognized throughout our state and the nation. We are very fortunate to have such talented and dedicated music educators teaching our students, so please help us show our directors how much we appreciate all that they do for our children.


Please contact us with any questions: Lucy Cruz or Janet Sitler at
