The Caledonia Band Boosters is a volunteer parent & guardian organization who works in partnership with the Band Directors to support and enhance the Middle and High School band program. Our mission is to foster, promote, sponsor, develop and preserve instrumental music in the Caledonia Community Schools and surrounding communities by means of volunteer and financial support.
We provide this support by raising 95% of the band’s overall budget providing sheet music, planning and chaperoning bus trips and band camp, moving equipment and program props, maintaining and distributing uniforms, maintaining our website, tracking student accounts, serving food and water, and cheering our Caledonia Band at football games and competitions! The past few years, we have been able to provide a few $500 scholarships to graduating seniors. The Band Boosters chipped in to purchase a much-needed marimba for the Kraft Meadows Middle School band program in 2012. Future goals include raising enough money to subsidize a small portion of each student’s marching band camp costs.
In order to provide this financial support, the Band Boosters organization needs to raise approximately $35,000 - $40,000 per year . The fact is, we can’t do it without enthusiastic, motivated parents. Each year, at graduation time, we have many students (and their booster parents) leaving the band program forever. We need to replace those outgoing supporters with incoming parents of middle school band kids, and new high school band kids.
How can you be sure you know the very latest happenings of the band? It is amazing how quickly events come up and details change…especially during Marching and Competition season. And students don’t always remember to tell us those important, last minute details...
