Booster Mission
The Band Booster Club is a non-profit
organization whose purpose is to help
promote a better band, school and
community spirit by volunteering our time
and skills as well as provide financial
support to full-fill the goals and objectives
set forth by the Band Directors.
Without all these components our student
experience is negatively impacted.
