Highland HS Band & Color Guard

2017 Fall Show "Nevermore" 

Highland High School Instrumental Music Boosters


The Highland High School Instrumental Music Booster Club consists of a group of adults, mainly band student parents, whose main function is to provide financial and physical support for the HHS Music Program.
We would like to encourage all parents to become members and show your support and become actively involved in the committees and fundraising projects. The boosters need many people to plan and work for the benefit of the students.

The future success and growth of the band program is dependent upon the continued support of all of our talented students and their families.

We need assistance in the following areas:
Volunteers for events
The band needs your help with moving uniforms and instruments, driving trucks, chaperoning trips, and cooking food and cleaning up during all scheduled events.
Donations
The music program can use donations of various items. Musical instruments in fair or better condition are always welcome as are donations of cash or time. The Boosters utilize SignUpGenious.com to collect items for rehearsals, dinner items for game nights, and competition snacks.  Also, please see the ‘WISH LIST’ posted on the drum closet door.
Corporate donations
Many companies both large and small have policies that provide financial support for educational and community development. We are a non-profit organization and may qualify for many of these corporate contributions. The boosters can prepare any documentation necessary to assist you in applying for support from your employer.
