Mandatory Parent Meeting
We will be having a MANDATORY parent meeting for parents of students in any music program/ ensemble on Tuesday, March 24 at 7 pm. Plan to be there to learn about upcoming schedule changes and how they will affect the programs and your students’ schedules next year.
Consider attending our Booster Meetings!
Meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the band room. Learn more about the program overall, the individual programs and the inner workings of how we keep it running! You are already a Booster just by having a student in the program. Come see what it’s all about!

Booster Roles to fill:
-VP of the Music Program
-Marching Band Assistant Manager
-Assistant Uniform Manager (shadowing to take over next year)
Interested in any of these? Contact Carolyn DeBerard at

Interested in volunteering?
Our uniform manager AND assistant uniform manager are both “graduating” this year. We need 1, 2 (or more!) parents who are interested in taking on this important job next year! Mrs. Graham and Ms. Ayers can show you everything you need to know! No sewing skills required! Contact any booster member for more information!

Program Donations
The music program is always taking program donations online. Each donation helps to fund a well rounded music program! Please consider adding an extra 3% to your donation to cover the online fees through Paypal. Thank you for supporting the music program!
Remember that our Textile donations are year-round! As you clean out your closets to make room for Christmas gifts, don’t forget that we take clothes, shoes, bedding, stuffed animals and pretty much any form of textile. You can send donations in with your student any time!
We are looking for ways to make money for the music program on a bigger scale. If you’ve had a successful fundraiser or participated in one, we would love to hear from you! This program needs some more ideas to generate bigger dollars—unfortunately things aren’t cheap these days.
