The Role of the Cathedral City Band Boosters, Incorporated
The Cathedral City High School Band Boosters (CCHSBB) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide financial and physical support to the directors, students and families of the CCHS Band Program. Our purpose is to support and supplement the quality of the total band experience for all enrolled band students. The Band Boosters of Cathedral City High School are a dynamic, highly organized, dedicated group of parents, volunteers, and community members interested in promoting, and maintaining interest in the Cathedral City High School Bands. This vital organization pledges to support the CCHS Bands by: (1) planning and staffing band events as volunteers offering both their time and talents, (2) strategize and implement fundraisers to assist the CCHS Bands with supplemental financial aid, (3) encourage the development of community in both students and parents, (4) encourage musical and personal excellence in our students, and (5) foster Lion’s Pride. The Band Boosters meet monthly, and are governed by a set of bylaws and are registered and incorporated with the State of California. This group extends an open invitation to any and all parties concerned to join the endeavors of this influential organization. Your participation through annual program donations, fundraising, and volunteer activities is necessary to provide our students with the quality program that makes the Bands of Cathedral City High School an award winning educational experience.
Parental involvement has been cited as the number one factor for success in a child’s musical endeavors. For parents of band students, there are many opportunities to show your support by attending concerts and performances, Back To School Night, and by getting involved in the CCHS Band Booster Organization. We encourage all of our parents to become involved in one of the many opportunities to volunteer in our program.
It is the parents’ responsibility to maintain a reasonable and effective relationship with both their student and the teacher to maximize the benefits of the educational experience.
