Dear Parents and Students,
As a booster organization we want to do our part to help elevate the music program. We want to support the directors and the students. We want to make sure all the good they do is recognized. Our directors do a great job teaching and we want the students to enjoy the program. I know that when they enjoy the music, they are more willing to practice. Their practice leads to mastering skills that they can and should take pride in. When they take pride in their work, if we are there to recognize them, we can create a positive feedback loop.
I still remember the first time I heard my oldest son perform with the BHS marching band; I was in awe over how great they sounded. Our middle school band program was pretty good, but the high school band took things to a whole new level. I got a little choked up that day.
Aside from being cheerleaders for the music program, as boosters we do many other things. We hand out programs. We take tickets. We set the stage for concerts. We hand out water bottles at band practices. We fit kids for uniforms. We chaperone music outings. We load and move band equipment. We set up fundraisers. We take pictures and videos of your students’ performances and post them where you can access them. We offer spirit wear (link to our spirit wear page). The list goes on and on. Come join us and see! Click here for booster meeting schedules. It is fun and very satisfying.
One of our goals is to help you know what is going on with BHS music at any time. In addition to the information posted on our web site, we send out communications. Please click here to join our mailing list.
The 2018-2019 school year is going to be a year of exciting changes. For example:
- We are enjoying a new speaker system in our auditorium.
- We have a new band director, Jon Quiaoit--or just Mr. Q. We look forward to working with him!
- We are getting new custom printed uniforms.
Over the years as a booster member, I have enjoyed getting to know other students, other parents, and the directors.
As booster president, I look forward to working with all of you. There is nothing better than working with the type of people who are willing to share their time and talents as volunteers. I hope to see you at our booster meetings.
