GATOR MUSICIAN SUPPORT FUND
Band parent organization supporting the Glades Middle School Band
The Glades Middle School Gator Band is an exciting, active organization. We are proud to have a committed, enthusiastic group of students who are involved in the music making process. These musical ambassadors are a source of pride for our band, school and community. An equal source of pride is the band’s parent support group. These dedicated parents and friends have given unselfishly of their time and talents to provide enrichment experiences for the students involved in our program.
During the course of the school year, our band parents make a difference. Annual projects help raise needed funds to offset the costs involved in travel, equipment and related educational expenses. Our band parents also help manage uniform maintenance and distribution, assist with transport and set-up of equipment, and serve as chaperons. Equal to all of these jobs is the important role as an audience member. The loudest statement a parent can make to their child is through the attendance at band concerts and performances. Your child may not come right out and say “thanks,” but he or she will certainly appreciate and value your support.
Very soon, I would like to meet as a Boosters to discuss upcoming band events and support activities. By attending and participating in our parent support group, you can stay informed of the activities of the Glades Middle School Band program. This is your personal invitation to come out and renew an old friendship or make a new one. Experience first-hand the sense of community that develops as involved parents and friends support the activities of their children.
Please contact me, either by phone at (305) 271-3342 ext 2226, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org , should you have any questions or concerns, or if you would be interested in joining this wonderful and supportive council. I look forward to working with you soon!
