Hey Band & Guard Families!
We are about half-way through an awesome year and looking forward to great things this next semester!
The Mavericks Band Boosters are actively seeking a handful of dedicated parents/guardians to fill our open board and coordinator positions to finish out this year and also serve in the 2023-2024 school year. The MBB is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that exists to support all Mountainside High School band and colorguard programs. We provide fundraising, volunteers and hands-on help to make our programs the very best they can be for our students. We hold monthly meetings, on the first Thursday of every month (all parents/guardians welcome!).
Would you take a few minutes to read over the open positions and consider joining us? All positions are yearly commitments. We are hoping for parents who would like to jump in and start shadowing now, and continue their commitment through the next school year.
OPEN BOARD POSITIONS:
This is a shared position that manages student forms (all activities), takes notes at monthly board meetings and assists parents at registration meetings (marching/guard). We currently have one parent in this position who you would shadow/help for the remainder of this school year.
Co-Volunteer Coordinators (2)
This is a shared position that helps in the recruitment of volunteers for our programs ( all band/guard). These individuals should have good communication and time-management skills and be comfortable around a computer. Most of this job can be completed from the comfort of your own couch! There are currently no volunteer coordinators, but you would shadow and be trained by me (Stephanie) until you were comfortable taking over.
Co-Director of Fundraising
This is a shared position that oversees our fundraising activities and sponsorship program. These individuals connect with and raise support from our amazing neighboring community. We currently have one parent in this position who you would shadow/help for the remainder of this school year.
OPEN NON-BOARD POSITIONS:
Band Day Coordinator
This person helps organize and run our biggest fundraisers of the year! Band Day is a full day (Saturday) event where groups of students walk our school’s neighborhoods, knock on doors, play their instruments and throw their flags to raise money. Band Day occurs twice a year: once in the Fall (marching band only) and once in the Spring (all school bands). We need a point person to plan and assign neighborhood routes for student groups (routes already established), place and remove signs before/after event and oversee the general planning and needs for these important fundraising days.
Bottle-Drop Coordinator (for 2023-2024)
This person would be our point of contact with the Bottle Drop organization and would be responsible for keeping our blue bag supply at the school filled, providing blue bags to families as needed, collecting blue bags from the band room, occasionally making bag drops, and coordinating two matching events per year. We currently have a parent in this position who could begin the training process for a smooth transition to next year.
BFoM (Beaverton Friends of Music) Support
Have you ever wondered how decisions are made that affect students in the Beaverton School District? Beaverton Friends of Music (BFoM) is seeking new parents who want to learn about how to build positive, long term relationships with the administration and school board members. Join Ingrid Arnett, Mountainside's Director of Music Advocacy, at BFoM's monthly (virtual) meetings and learn more about how you might also be able to positively affect the future of arts education in our district in the years to come.
Did you make it this far? THANK YOU for taking the time to look over our needs and for considering how you could play a part in helping make our band/guard programs the very best for our kids. It must be said…we work as a team and have a lot of fun together! If you have any questions, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you!
