Support Music Education And There Is Only The Moon For These Kids


The Eustis Middle School Mustang Band averages about 150 total students. Our students are positive role models in the school and in the community, and we are working to develop a program called The Mustangs Caring for School Community (MCSC). The program is designed to create a caring school environment characterized by kind and supportive relationships and collaboration among students from the Mustang Band, staff, and parents. The MCSC model is consistent with research-based practices for increasing student achievement as well as the theoretical and empirical literature supporting the benefits of a caring classroom community in meeting students' needs for emotional and physical safety, supportive relationships, autonomy, and sense of competence.

By creating a caring school community, our program seeks to promote pro-social values, increase academic motivation and achievement, and prevent drug use, violence, and delinquency. MCSC has seven components designed to be implemented over the course of the school year:
Please take a look at our program here. The Mustang Caring For School And Community Program (MCSC). Sponsorship is recognized with logo printing in both middle school and high school programs as well as possible website links.
Thank you very much,
Cherrice Purvee Eustis Mustang Music Association President

If your family or small business is interested in supporting the band 
please see the sponsorship form below.

Currently, in order to participate in the band program, students are required to purchase or rent an instrument, buy a uniform, provide entry fees for competitions and absorb the transportation cost for these trips. 
 Most of the funds have to be provided by the parents.

Our goal through community support is to help offset some of these expenses and to provide those students with the greatest financial needs the opportunity to be able to participate in our school’s music program through scholarships. Boys and girls who are active in the arts, especially in a music program, are shown to maintain higher GPA’s, are more likely to complete a higher level of education and in turn give back to their community.

Donating to the Eustis Mustang Band Program 
is an investment in our future!

Please become an EMS Music Education Partner today.

Blue level and above donations will be recognized in BOTH the Eustis Middle School and Eustis High School Band literature throughout the coming school year.

This equals twice the exposure for your business!
