The Boosters held a meeting prior to the parents meet and greet.  The objective was to get alignment on this year’s key objectives, initiate the fund raising plan, and to get ready to host the parents at the meet and greet

2015 / 2016 Coventry Music Booster Objectives

  • Continue to support the music programs as we have in the past – with minor adjustment. 

    • “Meet and Greet” for band parents

    • Refreshments for the pep band at home football games (including a full up pot luck at the last game)

    • PTO craft fair holly wreath sale

    • Refreshments at concerts.  This year, hospitality will provide refreshments for the kids in the band, fund raising committee will sell refreshments to the concert attendees.

    • Supporting the annual band “Bandquet”

    • Providing two scholarships

    • Senior gifts

    • Support for providing Memorial Day Parade

    • Fund raisers to support the band trip

    • Other miscellaneous support as required by the music department

  • Expand music booster participation to include more chorus and middle school representation

  • Raise money to offset the cost of the Nashville trip, while developing a high return, repeatable cadence of fundraisers that are synchronized with, and complementary to, the Band’s fundraisers (Citrus Sale, Mattress Sale, Baked goods sale at Coventry Farmers Market)

Other News

  • Boosters will be present at both Middle School open house Sept 16, and HS open house Sept 30.  Need volunteers to staff the table at middle school.

  • Darcy is taking the lead on creating a Music Booster Board that can be a visual display for when the Boosters are present at an event.  Thanks Darcy.  Needs pictures and help.

Meet and Greet

  • Thanks in large part to the work of Deborah, we had an awesome turnout at the open house.  Deborah created and sent a hardcopy letter to every band member house advertising the meet and greet.  We had about 15-20 parents attend, and got contact information from all of them.  Many were anxious to support the boosters.  Should be a good year!
