What do the Band Boosters do?                                         

The goals of the MHS Band Boosters as defined in the group's bylaws are:

  1. To create a closer working relationship between students, parents, school, community, and the band directors.
  2. To raise funds in order to provide financial support and enrichment for the band program.
  3. Support the music and performance program as defined by the band directors.

Parents in the Band Boosters volunteer for band program events and provide fundraising opportunities for both students and the program as a whole. The Boosters administer several fundraisers throughout the year providing all band students increased opportunities to study privately, attend summer music camps, upgrade their instruments, and travel on band trips. Fundraising events include traditional sales, music events like the Mundelein Invitational, a monthly fundraising program, Shop with Scrip and much more! 

All band parents are invited to become active participants in the MHS Band Boosters. It is a fantastic way to help encourage your student's participation in an extremely beneficial activity that is artistic, team-based, academic, and fun!  Whatever skill set you possess, the Band Boosters can put your talents to use.  Many hands make light work; if you only have an hour to give it will a difference.  Please come out and get involved!    



Want to make a difference?

In the fall of each school year, please consider helping out with our Marching Mustangs.  We need a whole team of parents to help with uniforms, water, front ensemble instruments and chaperone at marching competitions.

In the spring, there is the Mundelein Invitational and Evening of Jazz.  Both of these events require many volunteers to make them a success each year. Look for the Band Blurb announcements that will detail any volunteer requests.
