Looking Ahead

We will have numerous openings for next years booster board. If you are interested in serving please reach out to Ms. Friedman our Booster President at smsbandboard@gmail.com so that she can get you more information. Potential Openings are:


President

Secretary

Treasurer

Hospitality

Volunteer


Elections aren't held until closer to to end of this school year, but we want to give everyone plenty of time to ask questions and consider if this is a good place to serve. Most positions require very little time and meetings happen once a month during the school year and last 30-45 min.


Our current Treasurer Ms. Prier has done a FANTASTIC job aiding in streamlining a number of our processes that will make next years treasurers life so much easier. THANK YOU Ms. Prier!
