Contact us, your Booster Club

What We Are  The Vandegrift High School Band Booster Club is a 501 c3 organization of parents with students in the instrumental music program whose goal is to provide support to the Vandegrift Band Program both financially and through involvement in any and all activities to ensure the quality, safety, and enjoyment of the program.

How We Do It   The boosters are involved in various fundraising activities, chaperoning events, and helping the directors as needed.

Why You Should Be Involved   It is a great way to be involved in your child’s activities. It is also a great way to make new friends, both with other parents as well as getting to know the other students. The success of the program depends on your commitment!

What You Can Do   Attend booster meetings to stay informed. Booster meetings occur the first Tuesday of the month in the high school band hall, and are on the official band calendar. Our volunteer opportunities are under the “Volunteer” link up above on the main navigation menu click it and see all the different ways you can get involved. One way to help is Chaperoning – the best way to get to know other students and parents. Volunteer! We have a spot for you, whether it be helping serve food to the students, stitching up uniforms, asking businesses to sponsor the band, driving the truck, loading equipment onto the truck, unloading the truck, or fixing up the truck. Join one of our many committees – there are numerous different committees to suite any interest including hospitality, fundraising, communications, and travel. Have FUN while supporting our fantastic band program! You can also read our official VANDEGRIFT CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS .
