Other expenses exist which are not covered by marching band fees, such as instrument repair, extra event fees, band and color guard expense, trip fees, etc…We try to keep these fees to a minimum, so we are called upon to generate extra funds.
Students have an opportunity to increase their student band account for various Band & Color Guard related expenses throughout the school year.
Do you have a great fundraising idea or suggestion for a service to make the SHHS Band & Color Guard Music Program even better?
We always want to hear from our parents and supporters, and welcome their comments and suggestions for fundraisers and other opportunities to make the SHHS Band & Color Guard Music Program even more successful ! If you have an idea that you would like to present to the Band Booster Executive Board, just contact our Fundraising Coordinator (Robyn Gaitan) or any member of the committee. We will discuss your suggestions on our next meeting and see how we can implement them. There is always room for additional opportunities for our students to succeed and our parents to get involved !
Thank you parents, guardians and students for your support and participation.
