Committees

Our wonderful band program simply can't exist without the support and encouragement of our Band Booster program and the wonderful parents and guardians who help in many ways. Consider volunteering for one of these committees, chaperoning a concert, football game, or competition, or simply supporting the band through Amazon Smile or one of our many fundraisers throughout the year.
