Band Booster FAQS

When Are Band Booster Meetings?

Meetings are held every 2nd Tuesday of each month @ 6:30pm at the FHS Band Hall. 

Who is a Band Booster?

A band booster is any parent or guardian of a student in band.

What does a Band Booster do?

The band boosters are a dedicated group of parents who volunteer their time and talent to ensure the success of each of the performing groups at FMS and FHS.  We work closely with the Directors, providing the talent and experience to help with the many details that must be taken care of for each performance or event. We are also involved in fund-raising for the band program. Most of all, we are there to cheer our talented students on! We are there because we care! 

Why do we need a Band Booster group?

We need a booster organization to be the main supporters, both physically and financially, of the entire FISD Band Program. Band does require a little extra money from each individual’s family. Although, it does require extra money, the directors do try to keep the extra costs for being in the band down as much as possible. Other competitive 3A/4A programs around the state charge 2-3x the amount in operating costs as ours does. Our boosters help defray some of those costs as well. The Directors do their best to provide a quality music education for your child, which takes a great deal of time and energy. We may not be able to help teach music, but we can help fit uniforms, move equipment, provide food and hydration needs for the kids, raise money so all the kids can go on group trips, fund private lesson scholarships,  work band sponsored events, help with the monies the district does not, and be the #1 supporters to show our kids we care and are interested and involved in what they care about. We know that the Performing Arts are an important part of our kids’ education and in many ways keeps them motivated to better themselves in ALL areas of education.  

How can I help?

Contact the Band Booster President or any Band Booster Board Member and let them know your availability. Fill out the Booster volunteer sign-up form located here and have your student turn it in to a director.

How can I keep informed?

Come to the monthly booster meetings! IT IS where you can get your questions answered, learn where you can help, learn what fundraisers are coming up, and to find out the things your kids don't tell you. Sign up to be a helping member and help us help all of our children together.
