Band Booster Feedback

Hello wonderful band families!

We need some feedback from you.  It’s important for us to evaluate how we are doing as an organization to ensure we are meeting the mission of the CdS Band Boosters.  Our mission cannot be accomplished without wonderful and caring families that support the program with their hard work and financial help.  So, we hope that you will take the time to fill out a simple 5 question survey that should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. 

We would like responses no later than March 17.  You may access the survey here.

We appreciate your feedback an ongoing support of the band programs.

Congrats Concert Bands!

Congratulations to the Concert Band on earning a rating of EXCELLENT at the Area Concert Festival, and the Symphonic Band for earning a rating of SUPERIOR WITH DISTINCTION. This is the first time in over twenty years the Symphonic Band has earned the highest rating possible at this festival. Our Wind Ensemble will travel to their festival on Monday March 2.
