New Parent Meeting!

August 9 at 6:15pm in the HS Media Center

Come and meet the Booster Exec board and many of our dedicated chairpersons at this meeting! If you are new to our band program, this is your chance to hear about the booster organization and what our role is in supporting this fantastic band program. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Needed: Assistant Chairpersons for Various Committees

We are in need of a few parents to help out our committees. It is a lot of fun to work on these committees. You will meet wonderful parents and every minute of your time directly benefits our band program

To volunteer for a position: CONTACT AMANDA KOST: 4408646543 or memandy@ameritech.net. THANKS!

Here is what we need:

VISITING BANDS – need a parent to contact the directors of visiting bands to check on the size of their band. We have a form email for you to send to the directors. We need the information because we supply water and snacks to our visiting bands. There are only 5 home games.

PHOTO BUTTONS – need a parent to help the chairperson with Picture Day, process the pictures, help make the buttons and distribute at home games. It is a lot of fun… especially making the buttons!

50/50 RAFFLE – need a parent to assist our chairperson the nights of the home games. You would help check in our volunteers, distribute tickets to our volunteers to sell, collect money, tear tickets and help close out the raffle. Involvement is from 6pm – halftime.

CHAPERONES – help chairperson to make sure all busses have chaperones. May require calling or emailing volunteers. Need to be able to chaperone the busses to away games and contests. It is a great way to meet the band and no worries about parking or driving to away events!

CONCERT UNIFORMS – need a parent to help the chairperson prepare the uniforms, distribute and collect for CONCERT season.
