Indian Creek Band Boosters is a volunteer parent organization that provides the critical support required to maintain all of the Indian Creek Bands, including MS and HS Concert bands, Marching Band, Color Guard, Pep Band, Jazz Band, Soloists and Ensembles. With the fantastic growth in participation that the bands have experienced this year, the monetary and manpower needs have also grown substantially.
You may not realize that most of the funding that is needed to maintain our band programs comes from fundraisers sponsored by the Band Boosters throughout the year. The school corporation funds some instrument purchases and maintains a repair budget for instrument upkeep - the rest of the funding needs are dependent on the Band Boosters.
The funds we raise go to pay for the following very basic needs:
o Sheet Music for 6th, 7th, 8th Grade and High School Concert Bands, Solos, and Ensembles
o Sheet Music for Marching Band, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble and Pep Band
o Marching Band and Color Guard Equipment and Uniforms
o Clinicians and Staff for Concert Band; Instructors& Trainers for Marching Band and Color Guard
o Bus Transportation for Concert Band, Marching Band and Color Guard
o Equipment Trailer Maintenance and Fuel
o Storage and Facility needs for Middle and High School Band Rooms
o Instrument and Equipment Purchases, when possible
It costs about $30,000 a year to fund all of the above. And as the size of the Middle School, High School and Marching Bands continue to grow, so do the costs to sustain them.
The Band Boosters need your help in the areas of manpower and ideas! We sponsor many fundraisers during the year which require the time of volunteers to plan, coordinate with vendors, communicate to participants, set-up, sell/serve, and clean up.
The Band Boosters meet the second Monday of every month at 6:30 in the Cafeteria.
