Band Boosters

Every Parent is a Band Booster!

The AHS Band Boosters are the fundraising arm of the band. Members are parents, grandparents, and friends of our student musicians. Boosters meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month, at 6:30 in the band room. We encourage parents to attend regularly to take part in the decisions that affect our students.

There will be a couple of mandatory meetings throughout the year as well, to ensure that all students and parents are prepared for upcoming events. Please make sure we have your current contact information (update it here), and don’t forget to sign up for Remind, to receive text notifications of upcoming events from Ms. Stott and Drum Major Amethyst Gallegos. Text @mb1819 to 81010.

Every year, we work to raise enough money to pay for music, equipment, uniform cleaning, transportation, entrance fees, drill writer, personnel, and a variety of other band-related expenses that APS does not cover. Additionally, we’ve been able to bring down student costs by achieving bigger fundraising goals than ever before.

You can see the 2018-19 budget here.
