To all Band & Auxiliary Boosters (Parents/Guardians) & Students:

Who is a Booster? You’re a Booster if you’re the parent or guardian of a student in a Band Class, a Marching Ensemble Member, a Winter Color Guard Member, a Winter Drumline Member, or a Cadet Drumline Member.

Welcome New and Returning Students & Boosters!

I’d rather be writing a nice “Welcome Back!” letter but this one will be mostly business. As you saw or will see in Mr. Irving’s Welcome Letter, students and parent/guardians also support the program by working at our various required fundraising events: Garage Sale, Craft Fair, Rhythmfest, Can Drives, and the always fun Tigard Balloon Festival. We’ll also be trying to experiment with new / additional fundraisers this year.

We are in DESPERATE NEED of student and parent/guardian volunteers the days of the Garage Sale on August 17-18!This fundraiser will not succeed without your support! We also need help sorting / pricing @ Twality on Sunday 3-5:30 & Wednesday 5-8:30.
NOTE: If you’re in Marching Ensemble you’ll be at Band Camp on Friday, Aug 17th and get to help setup already! No need to sign up for that shift, but sign up for a Saturday shift!
