The Anchor Bay Band Boosters directly support the over 1,000 instrumental music students of the Anchor Bay School District. The organization strives to provide/supplement activities and supplies that are necessary to maintain a program of this nature and scope. With decreasing budget funds from our school district, our Band Booster organization is more important than ever in helping to “pick-up-the-slack” when it comes to filling the needs of students and the overall program. Some of the main financial goals of the Anchor Bay Band Boosters are to provide professionals clinicians, to help defer costs of marching band camp, and to purchase needed repairs for instruments, equipment, and uniforms so that the students can succeed in their efforts.
It is the mission of the Anchor Bay Band Boosters, in partnership with the Band Director(s) and school administration, to provide each of our students an opportunity to receive the best music education possible. We intend to accomplish this objective by providing moral, physical, and financial support to the band program in its effort to expose and apprise our children to the many opportunities available to them through participation in the musical arts. We commit ourselves to the task of assisting those less fortunate to also participate and enjoy the benefits of instrumental music membership. We pledge to promote a spirit of fellowship and goodwill with all areas of the school and always encourage our children to be the best ambassadors possible for the Anchor Bay Schools.
