1_22 FHS Band Boosters Meeting Minutes
The Fishers High School Band Boosters is comprised of family, friends, and supporters of the band. We work to raise money to support the band program and volunteer to help with band events, activities, and performances. The Fishers High School Band Boosters is a 501(c)3 organization governed by an Executive Board. The Boosters have a Leadership Team of committee chairs, which help manage various activities and fundraisers. Fishers Band parents can get organizational updates and find out how to get involved by attending Booster meetings held throughout the year in the Fishers Band room. Check the Calendar for scheduled meetings.
HSE School Board Policy requires parent volunteers to have a criminal history check every three years. If you have not had a volunteer background check in the past three years, or if you wish to volunteer for the first time, please fully review this page and follow the directions to complete an application for the required volunteer criminal background check. If you are unsure if your previous background check is still valid please contact your child’s school. Once approved, you may volunteer at any Hamilton Southeastern campus that your students attend.
As parents and family members of Fishers Band members, we know you want to be in sync with everything. Find details on Remind, Social Media, and all the ways to stay informed.
This is a great way to earn money for your marchers account. Check availability for specific dates directly with our liaison at email@example.com if you want to sign up to work. Volunteers must be 14 years or older. Adults will earn $12.00 per hour and Students will earn $10.00 per hour (with 10% going to the general fund). Conner Prairie accounting cuts checks twice a month. Make sure that you always sign in and out for your shift, so that our treasurer can credit your student account correctly! Boosters can volunteer with or without their student, but if your band student volunteers as well, they must be 14 years old.
There will be a volunteer sign in /sign out clip board. Please sign in and ensure your student’s name is listed also so that the correct account is credited.
Remember Volunteers need to be at least 14 years old in order to volunteer. There are sometimes positions that require a liquor license and 21 years of age, but most of the time that is not the case.
RaiseRight is an easy way to earn money for your student’s band account while you shop. Gift cards are purchased online and used at a variety of stores and restaurants. They also offer physical gift cards, some that you can even reload from the website or app. Register to participate at https://goo.gl/forms/
Each person participating in RaiseRight needs to have a completed enrollment form on file with the Scrip Committee Chairperson. To get started with RaiseRight, simply complete the online enrollment form. Once the form has been received we will email you more information about Scrip, including the enrollment code that you will use to create your Scrip account.
UNIFIED Boosters is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children to be able to participate in extra-curricular activities. We help parents or other interested individuals raise the funds needed for the children to participate in these activities. We do this by providing staffing for events (eg. concerts, sporting events). Who are these staffers? YOU ARE. The money you earn is TAX FREE. You can sign up to work as many or as few events as you like. This money that is earned can be used to reimburse you for the expenses incurred and associated with your child’s activity (i.e. uniforms, equipment costs, gasoline for travel, hotel and food bills for travel). https://www.unifiedboosters.
This is an ongoing fundraiser. Rolls come in 5 different styles (see attached form) and are $13 per roll. Of that, $3.50 from each roll is credited DIRECTLY into your student’s account and $1.55 goes to the general fund. There is plenty of inventory to handle most orders. Simply call, text, or email what you need, and delivery can usually be arranged within a day or two. Checks to “FHS BAND BOOSTERS”. Please do not drop off orders and checks in the band room box without letting Rachel know. The sky is the limit as to who you can sell these to businesses, family, churches, etc.

This is a perfect opportunity to get a read from a very experienced BOA panel. Additionally, each band participating will receive immediate feedback from an 8th evaluator whose only job is to provide your program with this “mini clinic” for your band.
Every year in the fall, the band hosts a car wash to benefit the band. This is a very effective fundraiser for the band and always raises a generous amount of money.
Holy Guacamole! Easy money for the FHS Band & Guard!
Do you shop at Kroger? Do you have a rewards card with them? If you do, then you are only a few taps of the keyboard away from earning money for the band every time you shop at Kroger.
We have 41 households now who have their Kroger card enrolled for FHS Band and the band receives over $1,000 per year, automatically, just from those families.
That’s it! Thank you for helping out the band and guard!
