Booster Club Parents Needed for the 2021-2022 School Year!
The Centennial Orchestra Booster Club is an integral part of the orchestra’s growth. Parents will donate countless hours to figure out ways to raise money for the Centennial Orchestra. They will volunteer to help out at concerts, receptions, contests; the list goes on and on.
Students really enjoy all of the “extra” things that happen in orchestra. We go on trips, have parties, compete in contests, eat lots of food, and so much more! We look forward to maintaining traditions!
All of these “extra” things are not free. Students want to see the traditions thrive. They will carry on as long as we have parents to volunteer and help raise the necessary funds to do so.
A small number of parents cannot continue to do all of the work for an orchestra this size. The booster club, the Centennial Orchestra, and the directors need help from ALL parents.
The orchestra’s school accounts and budget only take care of a very small amount of the monetary needs of the Centennial Orchestra. Fundraising and parent help is essential.
Parent volunteers are needed in the following ways:
Serving at concert receptions
Helping to prepare/set up/serve at the Orchestra Banquet at the end of the year
Spring Trip Chaperone
Field Trip Chaperone
Orchestra Party Chaperone
Offering to pick up food or drinks for an orchestra function or party
Being a member of the booster club board
In order for this orchestra to run efficiently, ALL must contribute. The CHS Orchestra students deserve the best! Parents, you have wonderful children, and they should get to experience every opportunity that the CHS Orchestra has to offer.
Please contact Virginia Burgan (President) for more information on our wonderful Booster Club.
