NEWSOME BAND BOOSTERS
All parents of band and color guard students are invited to attend meetings of the Newsome Band Boosters so they can stay informed of the band’s activities and learn ways to support the music program. The Band Boosters perform a wide variety of activities such as constructing props, maintaining uniforms and equipment, fundraising, coordinating travel/transportation and chaperoning. In addition to volunteering time, boosters often provide the band with community resources including financial support, donations, and access to equipment and facilities.
While meetings are open to all affiliated parents and guardians of current band members, only Booster Members may vote on agenda items.
$25 Bronze Membership (Includes voting privileges for 1 member)
$50 Silver Membership (Includes voting privileges for 2 members, early entry to concerts and recognition)
$100 Gold Membership (Includes voting privileges for 2 members, early entry to concerts, recognition, a Newsome Band magnet, and free parking for one vehicle at home games)

Being a booster is rewarding and fun! One of our more popular positions is that of Chaperone. Parent-chaperones are a necessary part of moving the band to our scheduled venues including football games, competitions, MPAs, and parades. Hillsborough County requires adult supervision on all school trips. Additionally, parent chaperones assist the band function by handling drinking water, loading equipment, and helping students carry equipment on and off of the field. All volunteers must have a completed Y.E.S. form on file with the school district. Sometimes, we have more chaperones than we need. A booster board member will develop a fair system of selecting who is chosen to travel with the band.
