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. Statistics indicate that more students stay with the program throughout their high school career if their parents are involved! Please see the calendar for General Booster meeting dates and times.

What type of fund raising will the 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
Direct Donation Campaign
Concessions at Football Game
Concert Plant Sales
