Band Camp Chaperones Still Needed

Dear band families,

 

I hope you are doing well and looking forward to the holiday weekend.  I need to make an urgent plea for band camp chaperones, especially dads.  We cannot run band camp without you.  We are currently short three dads.  We absolutely need to have parents to step up.  Every year a new parent attends and wishes they had volunteered sooner - it really can be a lot of fun.

 

If you are interested in being a chaperone or medical staff, please complete this Google Form as soon as possible.  We can take parents for a full week or half weeks.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Veronica Thelander (bandcamp@brightonbandboosters.org  810-772-0242), Bryan Moore (734-776-3162), or Jeremy Hranko (734-320-0392).  

 

Thank you,

Veronica Thelander

It's Father's Day and it is going to be hot! I hope you all stay hydrated, protect yourselves from sun exposure, and enjoy your time together.

These are some of the reminders Band Camp Chaperones give to students - and we are still in need of additional parents to step into this role. Rising Freshman and Sophomore parents, this is a terrific opportunity for you to get to know the other students in the band! My first experience at Band Camp was last year (prior to my child's sophomore year - and we were not in the same cabin); before this, I only knew a handful of the students with whom she chooses to spend so much time. 

 

If you are interested in being a chaperone or medical staff, please complete this Google Form by Wednesday, June 19. We can take parents for a full week (August 19-24) or for half weeks (August 19-21 or August 21-24). If your student has expressed that they do not want you to attend camp, we can arrange for you not to be their chaperone. We have had students who request to not have parents at camp, and we can work it out so your student can have the autonomy they desire. 

Thanks to all who have sent in partial or full payment! If you opted to split the payments, your next $200 is due by July 15 and can be sent via PayPal to our  @brightonbandfees account. Be sure to indicate your student's name and "BC 2025" on either form of payment! (We will update options for other payment forms soon.)

 

Stay cool!

Welcome! 

The Brighton Band Boosters is a non-profit organization of parents and care-givers dedicated to working in partnership with our Band Directors to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our band students. We support all aspects of the band including the marching band, drumline, and color guard, as well as the multiple concert bands at all three schools.

The Boosters are run by a board of volunteers elected by our members each year. We provide all band parents and guardians the opportunity to actively support our amazing band programs by helping with things such as chaperoning events and student socials, helping to move band equipment and distributing uniforms, assisting with concert publicity, fundraising, and more. Our goal is to keep things running smoothly so the band directors can focus on the students and the music. Our fundraising efforts, most notably the sale of concessions during BAS sporting events, provide valuable financial support to the bands.

The Boosters meet once a month. Meetings are open to parents and care-givers from BHS, Scranton and Maltby and include information concerning the future of the band programs, upcoming events, and areas of concern or need. Throughout the year you will receive email newsletters from the Boosters with event updates and volunteer opportunities. To learn more about how you can contribute to the on-going success of our band programs please contact the Booster President JuliAnne Diesch or attend one of our upcoming meetings.

Go Dogs!
