Boosters

The parents and interested members of the community, with the agreement and support of the school district, have organized the Band Boosters. This group enjoys a unique relationship with WT Dwyer High School as an affiliate extension support group for the band program. The success of the boosters is due to the active participation of the students, parents, school and community. By definition, the role of the booster organization is to “boost” the band program in a positive manner through the presentation of a “united front” in support of the students, other parent volunteers and the band director(s).

Some of the specific objectives of the boosters include:

  • Purchase and maintain uniforms.
  • Provision or funds for the purchase and repair of instruments and equipment.
  • Provision of funds to purchase music and supplies.
  • Furnishing chaperones for band events.
  • Organization and implementation of fundraising activities.
  • Encourage new parent involvement.
  • Support and advocacy for music programs in the public schools.
  • Band Boosters are not custodians!! They are not required to clean up after the students.
