WHAT IS THE BAND BOOSTER ORGANIZATION?
The Beach Park Band Boosters play a significant role in the support and promotion of the band program. The officers and chair people of the various committees work year-round to help meet the needs of the bands. Every parent with a child in the program is asked to contribute time and energy to the many and varied Booster projects. These projects include, but are not limited to: fundraising; band shirt sales; publicity for the bands; uniform fittings; chaperoning skating parties, lock-ins and other social events; band camp and band trips; financial assistance for deserving students; purchase of new music and equipment, etc.
Over the years, the Boosters have spent over $600,000 for the purchase of school instruments, band uniforms, band camp, and several band trips. Much of the success of the Beach Park Band Program is dependent on the enthusiastic and hard-working parent organization. Please consider being a part of this well-organized, supportive group.
Student Fundraising Responsibilities
The Band Boosters work very hard for the bands, but one small group of people cannot support a program of this size and quality alone. The Boosters hold various fundraisers throughout the year for the sole purpose of funding various band activities. Whether its band camp, band trips, gym jams, trips to Action Territory or something as simple as the instruments and music they play, costs are almost always defrayed by the funds raised through fundraisers. Without the Boosters and the funds generated by fundraising, our band program would be severely limited to the point where most of our activities would cease to exist. As a part of the Band Program, it is important to recognize and understand your role in the fundraising process. Therefore, students will be required to participate in at least 3 fundraisers per year or will be asked to pay full price for band events such as trips and activities. We also offer $50 buy-outs for those who are unable to participate in fundraisers. PLEASE do what you can to contribute to the bands.
