What is the Band Booster organization for Deep Run?
It’s a group of dedicated parents who want to help make the band successful, and enhance the experience for every band student. There is much to do to run this program, and the more people that become involved, the less the burden on a few individuals. Statistics indicate that more students stay with the program throughout their high school career if their parents are involved!
How involved do I have to be?
You may be as involved as you would like to be. There are plenty of flexible opportunities to spend time with your student and assist in making our band a success. We can always use help, and there are ways your time and talents can be utilized with minimal effort on your part.
What type of fund raising will Band be doing this year?
Throughout the year, we try to create many varied opportunities for students and parents to raise funds to help offset the high cost of running a top-notch marching band program. You don’t have to participate in ALL of the fundraising efforts, however, the more you do, the less the band’s overall fees will be. There is certainly something on this list that every student can participate in. Typical fundraising efforts include:
· Spirit Nights at local restaurants
· Virginia Diner Peanut Sales
· Cookie Dough Sales
· Direct Donation Campaign
· Kroger Gift Card Program
· Scrip Gift Card Program
· Christmas Tree Collection
· Music in the Park Programs
· Concessions at Football Games and Invitationals
