The Edison High School Band & Color Guard is a program run by volunteers. If your child is in Band or Color Guard, then you are a Booster.
We need every Booster to volunteer! Not only will you enjoy participating in this activity with your child, you will get to meet other parents and your child will appreciate how your participation and contribution enhances his or her Band or Color Guard experience.
We especially need people to lead or coordinate these activities. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure how to lead or support an activity; your Booster Board is here to help you figure it out! You will be glad that you did!
