Welcome To The Anna Band Boosters

The mission of the Anna Band Boosters is to support the directors, our students, and the band programs in creating, producing, and performing the best possible marching and concert programs.  We promote excellence in education through support of an outstanding musical instrument program. We believe that a great band program develops the physical, mental, and spiritual gifts of our students. The discipline learned and the work habits developed serve the band members for the balance of their life.

The Anna Band Boosters support and promote the instrumental music program, raise financial support, provide scholarships, and repair/alter uniforms. The Boosters also provide food and drink for special occasions; serve as chaperones for all band trips; and support the percussion pit by moving heavy equipment on and off the field during halftime and competition performances.

What Do The Band Boosters Do?

The Boosters’ mission is to promote, aid, and financially assist the Anna High School Band, its students and staff. We support the band directors’ vision and assist the Band in their activities, shows,  competitions, and promote Band involvement in our community.

Every parent has something to contribute. Expertise is needed in every possible area from making phone calls, sewing, word processing, accounting, and even baking/cooking. Our collective group of parents provides the tools of every trade.

Many parents think that the sole purpose of the Booster Club is fundraising. While that is part of what we do, the main purpose is to create a partnership that connects students, parents, and director.

The Boosters:

★   Identify the needs of the Band
★   Ensure students have food and other necessities
★   Support Band Personnel and their curriculum
★   Create engaging fundraiser events
★   Promote student & parent involvement

Thank you for supporting Your Anna Coyote Band!
