Giving a "Boost" for the Band!
My experience has taught me that a band booster group is essential to the success of the band program. I encourage every parent in the Tosa East band family to consider joining and supporting this organization.
- Volunteer for an upcoming activity (a great way to get to know other parents with similar interests).
- Become a member of the RRBB
- Make a donation towards the RRBB (they give tens of thousands of dollars in financial support to our bands each year and need your help to make sure that continues).
Lastly, go check out their website (click here) and check it out.
