Hayfield Orchestra Boosters

The Hayfield Orchestra Boosters is an organization dedicated to helping the orchestra program through a number of supportive services. The Boosters support the Hayfield Secondary School 7th through 12th grade Orchestra Program by providing assistance and support to the Orchestra Directors by running fundraisers, helping with trip preparations and chaperoning, and aiding the orchestra program in other efforts as needed. Volunteering in the Boosters is a way for parents to become involved in their child’s education. Our tradition of excellence relies on a team of volunteers, educators, and students. <Download the membership form>
