Booster Meeting Schedule



The Boosters are dedicated to helping the BAND.  We need your help to offer our students the best musical experience possible.  Even if you can only help for 2 or 3 hours at one event, please sign up!!


Plan to attend our monthly meetings (see schedule below, some dates may change) at 6:30 P. M. in the Middle School Band room. Be on the look out for information about summer practice dates and information concerning the start of the school year. There will be a letter included about areas and events we hope you will volunteer for.

Please call if you any questions, comments, or suggestions, 458-6692.
