Parents, we are in need of your help! With the growing size of the band, we are short volunteers. To help your students effectively, we are asking for help in the following ways:

  1. Band Needs: Chaperones to ride buses to football games and contests, drive trucks to games and contest, possibly move show equipment – Contact a director using the director contacts email link on the top right of this page.
  2. Booster Needs: – Concession help for football games, contact sponsors to donate money to the band (form on sponsor page), parents to show support for their students in band by coming to booster meetings. Contact Booster President, Jessica Mills on the Booster Page for more information on how you can help.
  3. There are many ways that you can support the band. This support can be through volunteering on Friday night, donating much-needed items, or maybe just buying a show t-shirt and cheer for IHS Band at contest. Whatever it is, YOUR CHILD REALLY DOES want to see YOU there.

The BEST Bands in the State of Texas have the greatest numbers of Parents supporting them. TOGETHER we can help make this a GREAT BAND!
