Band Boosters

Albemarle Band Booster Information

Albemarle High School Band Parents Association is the group of parents of past and present Albemarle High School Band students. Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 in the Band room.

The Band Boosters offer money-raising opportunities for students. Each student participating will receive 35% of his/her gross sales into a student trip account. If the monies in the student’s accounts are not used in this fiscal year, the account will be rolled over to next year Any money left in the account upon graduation/moving will revert back into the General fund. The first two weeks of school, we will be selling gift wrap. Your band student may pick up packets in the band room. In October, November, and December, we will be selling Florida citrus fruit. In November we will sell the Poinsettias.

Band Boosters also has events for fund raising which raise money for the General Fund. Monies from the General Fund go to pay for business expenses, uniform components, new instruments, trucks for competitions and events, specialists and much more. These events include a Craft Fair and selling car flags and seat cushions at all home football games.

All band members and parents are invited to come support the Marching Band at its competitions. Entrance fees to the competition are usually somewhere around $5. The competitions are an opportunity to see many local (and some distant) high school marching bands. (It’s like watching a day of half-time shows without the football).
