Parents—the Band Booster’s page on the band’s website is operational! Did you know that the time commitment for being involved with the Boosters can be as little as two hours a month? That’s not a bunch considering there are about 730 hours in a month! As the Director of our Band Program, I STRONGLY believe in our band boosters, and you should too. Their help behind the scenes helps to take the cost of running our program out of your pockets, and allowing our boosters to flourish makes it possible for our program to continue to grow.
If you have ever wondered why we have not traveled to Disney or some other big trip, or why we haven’t entertained taking our Marching Band to State, it’s only because we simply don’t yet have the regular parental support to help us afford the luxuries that push us in that direction.
I urge each of you to simply attend our booster meetings to learn about it and begin to help more positive change for our band program.
No one is required to serve in a position, however, the following positions are vacant in the boosters:
· Third Vice President of Travel
· Volunteer Chair
· Uniform Chair
· Alumni Chair
· Sponsorship Chair
· Social Media Chair
