Mission Statement

The Fruitland High School Band & Color Guard Booster Organization recognizes the Fruitland High School Band & Color Guard as an important aspect in the development of our community’s youth. It is our goal to actively support and promote Fruitland Band and Color Guard events and activities both within the Fruitland School District and in all areas that the Fruitland High School Band & Color Guard travels. The Booster Organization is a diverse group of individuals with many talents. It is our mission to use these talents in the best interests of the Fruitland High School Band & Color Guard students and directors. Our role is to support the Band Director and Fruitland School Administrators in their policies and decisions. We will offer ideas, opinions, and enthusiasm in a close relationship with the Band Director and the students involved in the Band & Color Guard programs.

Boosters

Parents are invited and encouraged to get involved in the Band Boosters! We have a place for everyone to help at every level. We would like to use your talents to make this band program great for our kids. We love to have parents participate and during Marching Season (August to November) is when volunteers are needed the most. We need parents to alter uniforms, help get the band in uniform for shows, cook, serve, chaperone, help with the field props, serve as officers, and serve on committees, and travel with the kids. All parent volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer form on the Downloads page.


The band travels each fall to compete regionally. We like to have a lot parents travel with us. The parents who come travel with the band are those who have participated locally; they attend to the details of getting the band on the field for local competitions and performances.  Get involved with the Boosters!


We would love to hear from you or see you at one of the upcoming Booster Meetings. Booster Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month, September to May at 6:00 pm in the High School band room.  If there is a change in the date or time of the meeting a message will be sent out via Parent Portal and Facebook. You can contact the Booster President by email or phone using the links above.
