In order to have a successful band and color guard program, we need an active and supportive band and guard parent organization. Each of you as parents, family, and friends has special talents to contribute to your student’s musical future! Please attend our monthly booster meetings to find out ways how you can volunteer your service to the Booster organization.

EVERYONE is welcome to join! Your support directly supports your local band! With ever increasing budget cuts to the arts & music programs, we need your support to improve our music programs today, and plan for healthy music programs for the future!
