By definition, the role of the booster organization is to “boost” the band program in a positive manner. The purpose of the Dunedin High School Scottish Highlander Band Boosters is to advance the best interests of the DHS bands by providing support, as requested by the Director. All parents or guardians of students enrolled in the band program are members of the Band Boosters organization. Maintaining a thriving band program requires support and funding beyond that provided by the school system. We could not survive without our Parent Volunteers!
All Volunteers must fill out a Pinellas County Schools volunteer form prior to volunteering. Additionally, volunteers must wait until their paperwork is approved and cleared by the district before stepping on DHS campus in a volunteer capacity.
Specific objectives include:
- Chaperone all events in which students of the DHS band participate
- Maintaining an accurate log of all student accounts and band monies
- Organization and implementation of fundraising activities
- Organize, issue, and repair student uniforms
- Encouragement of new parent involvement
- Stimulate an enthusiastic interest/support for all phases of the band program

- How do I register to be a volunteer?
Easy! Simply fill out a volunteer registration form (available in the band room or in the front office) and submit it with a copy of your driver's license. Once you have been approved, you are cleared to volunteer! Always sign in at the front office if volunteering during school hours. After 2:30pm, you must sign in on a form in Mr. Black's office in the Band Room.
- How do I log my volunteer hours?
Easy! Simply click here to log in to Focus. Your user name will be "v.lastnamefirstinitial" and your password is "LastnameBirthYear". (Example: John Doe is "v.doej" "Doe2012") Sometimes, the user name will include one or two more letters of your first name in the event that someone in the system shares your last name and first initial.
- What can I do to help?
Lots of things! We have many opportunities for families to be involved in their child's band experience. From working our concession stand at football games to chaperoning competition performances, building equipment for the band to helping clean/maintain our uniforms, there's always something to do. Any time you can spare is greatly appreciated. To sign up, simply contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
