Car Washes

Car washes are held during the summer in the school parking lot just outside the band room. Students are supervised by chaperones and a parent is in charge of collecting donations from customers. Students should wear clothing that is cool and can get wet! Bring an old towel. Generally speaking, car washes are held on Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00pm and bring in hundreds of dollars in donations.

GL Scrip

What is Scrip?
Great Lakes Scrip enables participants to purchase gift cards and gift certificates for everyday expenses like food, clothing, and entertainment. The band earns a percentage of each dollar of scrip purchased; the percentages vary according to the retailer. Hundreds of cards are available -- including Chipotle, Noodles & Company, Kohl's, Sears, iTunes, Best Buy, and Walgreens.
Placing an order
Place your orders online at . Just create an account (all you need is an e-mail address) and associate your account with our organization, the W.T. Woodson Cavalier Band Patrons, Inc., by entering our Enrollment Code: 787DC8EF2145. You can shop anytime, but we generally submit our group order monthly, on the first Tuesday of the month, to allow for delivery of the cards for distribution at the Band Patrons' meeting (generally the third Thursday of each month during the school year). We can process your order, though, outside of our normal cycle if it's large enough to cover the shipping costs, and will make arrangements to get the cards to you as soon as possible. Many cards are eligible for "reload" (like AMC Theaters, CVS, Dominos, and Starbucks), which we can process almost immediately. Once you receive a confirmation e-mail, you can re-use your card. In addition, "ScripNow!" e-certificates (including 17 brands like Amazon, Home Depot, and Land's End ) are available immediately. Just sign up for the PrestoPay option (see more information below), and once your order goes through, the e-certificates are e-mailed to you (or your gift recipient if you indicate that). You can print the certificates to take to a store, or use the code for online purchases.
Paying for scrip
You have two payment options:
1) Pay by check, right after you submit your order. Submit your check to our Scrip Coordinator (Debbie Stoss) after you submit your order.
2) Pay by PrestoPay, online, at the time you place your order. Once you have successfully enrolled and verified your bank account information, the amount will be withdrawn from your bank account for the amount of your order, plus a small convenience fee of $0.39.

Tag Day

Tag Day is a one-day-a-year fund raising event. Tag Day is a door-to-door canvassing of homes in our school district to solicit monetary donations for the band program. It is our biggest fund raiser of the year. Every band member is required to participate B exemptions must be granted by the director. Tag Day is held on a Saturday, usually from 8:00am to 4:00pm with a break for lunch. Students are assigned specific neighborhoods to canvass and will travel in groups. No one is permitted to canvass alone. A band parent in a car accompanies each group. Students wear their band uniforms. The community knows about, understands, and expects Tag Day each year and people are very supportive and very generous.

Tiny Tots

The Tiny Tots concerts are held the week after Thanksgiving; performances are held in the gymnasium at 10am on both Wednesday and Thursday. We also feature a performance in the Woodson Auditorium at 7pm on the Wednesday. Woodson’s symphonic band performs traditional holiday favorites as well as current popular features. The $3 admission fee supports future holiday shows as well as other WTW Band programs.

Vehicle Donation Program

The Woodson Band Patrons have teamed with the Fairfax Host Lions Club to repair and sell donated vehicles. Vehicles that are in good condition and repairable for sale will allow the Donor to receive an IRS Donation Receipt. The Receipt qualifies the donation for a charitable tax deduction of up to the full fair market "Blue Book" value of the vehicle per the IRS regulations. The Lions Club generously shares profits from the sale 50/50 with the Woodson Band.  The Vehicle Donation Program benefits both the donor and the Band.  Encourage friends and neighbors to donate vehicles and support the Woodson Band!
If you have a vehicle to donate, please contact Stefan Schwarz at (703)503-6996 or
