$ Fundraising $

The Mead Bandwagon and Mead HS ASB groups are proud to offer many fundraiser opportunities to assist our students and their families in meeting the financial needs of our program.  With that said, not every student participates in all of the opportunities and often does not participate in any of them.

Our fundraisers are organized and run by either our Mead Bandwagon OR our Mead High School Associated Student Body, or ASB.  Each of those groups will offer fundraisers that earn money for specific students or the general fund.
