Joining the Hagerty High School Band Boosters Association is a great way to get involved with the band, and to help the students. Without the parent support, this program would not achieve the level of excellence that it has. There are many ways to get involved throughout the year. Below are committees that are always looking for help. If you are interested in assisting, you can contact the committee chairs or Mr. Kuperman or Mr. K.
Chaperoning- Each performance that takes place throughout marching and concert season usually calls for chaperones. Any off-campus event must have 1 chaperone per 10 students. You can sign up on Charms for these events. Just look for any calendar event that has a hand next to it.
Concessions– Concessions has become a main source of funding for the band program at Hagerty High School. Any school event that takes place in Sam Momary Stadium has concessions run by the Band Boosters Association. Last year this involved about 40 events. Each student will be required to work one event throughout the year, but we are always in need of more assistance from parents. You can find these dates on Charms.
Hospitality– Throughout the school year we have multiple events that involve decorating and organizing. Examples of this are setting up pizza for middle school night, creating raffle baskets, decorating for concerts, and planning the end of year banquet. If you are good at organizing, a crafty person or just like to make things pretty, then the hospitality committee could use your help.
Fundraising– Throughout the year the band participates in fundraising opportunities. Our largest event, Apple Sales, takes place in the fall. This involves the entire band and many parent drivers who take students out in the Oviedo community to sell bags of apples. We are always in need of drivers. We also fundraise through our concessions and specific concerts.
Media Coordinator – We are always looking for pictures or recordings to feature on the band website, and at the end of each school year we like to commemorate the moments that occurred throughout the year with a slide show. We are looking for volunteers that are interested in taking pictures throughout the entire year and creating a slideshow for the band awards night..
Sled Dogs– The sled dogs are the equipment movers throughout the year. They assist mainly during the marching season with loading and unloading trailers, helping front ensemble on and off the field, and the occasional tailgating.
Uniforms– Each year students are fitted for a marching uniform and concert uniform. Helping 200 students is a lengthy process and volunteers are always needed, not only for fitting uniforms but for hemming, and for helping at the events. Dates and times for fitting will be sent out in an email.
