Who we are:
The Band Boosters is a parent group similar to the PTSA which helps meet the needs of the program by organizing fundraisers and events to benefit the entire band program. They help the band program to purchase valuable resources that school funding cannot provide. This includes concert band music, jazz band music, new instruments and equipment as well as instrument repair to current school instruments. Any parent who has a child in the program can be part of this incredible group to help the band grow and flourish.
How can I help:
We are currently in the creation phase of the boosters and will be announcing a night meeting to establish the group and elect a President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Once the Boosters have been formed, donations can be made to help the future of the West Lake Band Program. Check the website regularly for details.
Band Boosters Board Meeting:
Any parents interested in being part of the Board should attend this meeting. The date for this meeting will be announced in the next week!
