NEWSOME BAND BOOSTERS
All parents of band students are highly encouraged to be an active volunteer in the NHS band program, and are invited to attend booster meetings. While meetings are open to all affliated parents and guardians of current band members, only Booster Members may vote on agenda items.
Memberships include: $15 for an individual, $25 for family (max of two people), $50 Silver Membership (includes early entry to concerts and recognition), $100 Gold Membership (includes early entry to concerts, recognition, a Newsome Band magnet and window cling, and free parking for one vehicle at home games). Booster membership is open to all persons over 18 years old interested in supporting the Newsome High School Band program and in furthering the objectives of the NBB and who meet one of the following criteria: 1. Are parents, guardians and/or grandparents of incoming, current or past Newsome High School Band students who have paid the required membership fee. 2. Is an alumnus of the Newsome High School Band program who has paid the required membership fees. If you are a business or band fan who wishes to support the efforts of the Newsome Band Booster financially, please check out our Sponsorship Opportunities by clicking on the button at the bottom of this page.
Being a booster is rewarding and fun! Boosters are invited to attend general meetings throughout the school year. Much of the communication regarding booster activities occurs via email and through CHARMS. The band boosters exist to support the vision and philosophy of the Band Director. In addition to volunteering time, boosters often provide the band with community resources including financial support, donations, and access to equipment and facilities.
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. One of our more popular positions is that of Chaperone. 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.
