Music Boosters Meeting -- Home Days Preparations

The Music Boosters will be having a meeting at the Civic Center on Wednesday, July 10 at 6:30 pm to discuss the details of our Home Days booths and preparations for Band Camp. The 5 booths that we run during Home Days are the Music Department's biggest fundraiser of the year. All students and parents in Vocal and Band are responsible to work at least one shift during Home Days. (50/50 profit split for student FL trip account)

Sign Up is Mandatory

Here's how signing up for shifts works:


Music Booster Volunteer Coordinator, Mary Dolansky, mnm2dolan@aol.com , will be calling you to schedule you and your student to work shifts at one of FIVE booths:

  • Pop Booth during the parade on Saturday from Noon-2.
  • Water Booth on Saturday from Noon-2.
  • Two Ride Ticket Booths (one adult, one student per booth) on Saturday from Noon-2
  • Shaved Ice/Hot Pretzel Booth on Saturday Noon-2

The Ride Ticket Booth and Shaved Ice/Hot Pretzel Booth are run by the Vocal Department Students and Parents, and other shifts to chose from are: Friday 5:30-11:00 pm (2-hr Shifts offered) and Saturday Noon-11:00pm (2-hr Shifts offered)


Students will sign up with their squads at HOME band camp for the Pop and Water Booths. Students can sign up for additional times to help with wristbands at the Ride Ticket Booths.

Parents will sign up for the Pop, Water and Ride Ticket Booths at Camp Burton Drop-off or during Parent Night at Camp Burton. Luke George and his helpers will be looking for you during these times to sign you up for a shift.
