PARENTS: BECOME A MEMBER OF THE VALLEY CENTER INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC BAND AIDE !!
The overall success of the VC Instrumental Music Program doesn’t just happen. It takes the involvement and support of parents and others interested in promoting instrumental music in our schools. The Valley Center Instrumental Music BAND AIDE support all schools in the Valley Center School District by volunteering for special events and fundraising.
To connect with the BAND AIDE, please attend our fun, informal meetings! It is during these meetings that we discuss and decide how best to help the Instrumental Music Department at all levels. Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month in the high school band room of VCHS.
The next scheduled meeting is Thursday, Sept, 29th @ 7pm in the VCHS Band Room.
The Band Aide is open to all VCHS/ VCMS/ & VCIS BAND PARENTS who would like to be more involved with their student's experience as part of the VC Band Program. Meeting minutes from each month is located in the Student/Parent Information Section of the Band Website.
