The Haslett Band Boosters


The Haslett Band Boosters is an independent organization comprised of the parents and/or guardians of all Haslett Band students.  There is an 8 member Board of Directors, and there are monthly general meetings for all members.   We are currently seeking 501c3 status.

The primary purpose of the Haslett Band Boosters organization is to provide parental support for the Haslett Public School Band Program. The goal is to provide an enhanced musical experience for band students through parental guidance, fund-raising and financial aid.


To meet our primary purpose and goals as described above in our "mission statement", we actively provide and/or support dozens of activities for Middle School and High School Band Students.  Many, many volunteers work hard to provide these activities and to raise funds to support them.  Brief lists follow:


Middle School Activities supported by Haslett Band Boosters:
  • MAC Night:  Middle School Band students have the Michigan Athletic Club "to themselves" one night late in March for two hours, at no cost to the student.
  • 7th & 8th grade concert uniforms:  care of, organizing, distributing, etc, for all students
  • financial aid for students needing help participating in band extracurricular activities such as private lessons, summer music camps, Solo & Ensemble workshops, etc.
  • Supplemental music for the Band Program
  • and more

Haslett Band Booster Fund-raisers (a variety to fit everyone's needs):

  • Van Atta's gift certificates:  on-going
  • Pampered Chef Fund-raiser: watch for sales fliers in September.
