The Buc Band is currently holding TWO fundraisers!  


Buc Band Face Masks 


Protect Yourself & Others with a Buc Band Mask! 


For every Face Mask sold, Buc Band receives 25% commission!  

2 styles, $22.00.   Use the link above to place an order!


Don’t need a mask, you can support the band through their Cash Cow Fundraiser.

Be on the lookout for texts/emails from band students who are soliciting donations and selling items through Cash Cow to raise money for new instruments and the lesson scholarship fund.




About the Program

The band program at J.L. Long has been steadily growing over the past years under the direction of Ms. Caitlin Schmidt. They are LOVING their brand new band hall space. There are more than 300 kids participating in band and we would love to have as many members as possible! We have the space now! This consists of Beginner Band (open to students in all grades),  Concert Band (7th and 8th grade), Intermediate Band (7th and 8th grade), and  Symphonic Band (7th and 8th grade, by audition). 
The Buc Band is truly a family – kids have a group to bond with while developing a lifelong love and appreciation for music. Learning to play an instrument is an amazing thing! It helps students develop confidence and discipline, as well as boosting  achievement in other academic areas. What most of the kids will tell you though, is that band is really FUN  and one of their favorite parts of the day!
