2014 Parents

Dear Dowling Catholic Band and Color Guard Parents,

Welcome to the Dowling Catholic Band Boosters! We are looking forward to another exciting and successful year. The Band Boosters is a parent-run organization and our mission is to assist and support the band directors, staff, and students to enable them to put on top-notch performances. There are many ways for you to get involved and share your talents with the band:

  • Assist with band uniform fittings
  • Parent chaperone (home football games and out-of-town competitions)
  • Parent medical chaperone (home football games and out-of-town competitions)
  • Roadie help (unload and load equipment re: games & competitions)
  • Various other set ups for band activities
  • Plant sales & magazine sales (fundraising)
  • Recruit new band members (from middle schools)
  • Decorate / spirit committee (band member lockers, cookies, etc.)

Being an active member of the Band Boosters is also a great way to meet other parents and form new friendships. You may want to volunteer to chaperone the band on one, two or more trips, help serve water at a home football game, help make decorations for the band lockers, or help unload equipment.
