Behind Every Great Band.....
Is An Incredible Band Booster Club!
Do Re Mi is our District 56 band booster organization. They support the band financially through a variety of fundraising activities but it doesn't stop there. Every time the band performs, band parents are there, working hard to make the event run smoothly and successfully. Check out this website and become familiar with band activities. Come to a Do Re Mi meeting (times and dates are posted on this website) and meet other band parents. Chaperone a trip. Be a room monitor at a band contest. Tally scores at the Bowl-a-Thon. Before you know it, you'll be a full-fledged District 56 Band Groupie!
