The Dakota High School Band Program is supported by MANY parent volunteers to assist with the MANY band program activities. We are very appreciative of our band parent volunteers and the support they provide to make our events run smoothly!
If you are a parent of a band member, please check out the Volunteer Sign-up List in the BAND App for current volunteer opportunities. Please feel free to contact any of the Band Booster Board Members by clicking on their name or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Band Booster Board
Our Band Booster Board assists with the planning and coordination of band events and activitie all year long to provide support to Mr. Makarewicz and the Band Department Staff.
Here are ways our band parent volunteers help throughout the year. We enourage parents to assist in one or more events to not only support our band program but to also learn more about our Bands, see them perform up close and to connect with other parents.
All Parent Volunteer should have a Chippewa Valley Schools Volunteer CRC Form on file with the school. If you plan to volunteer this school year and have not already completed a Volunteer CRC Form, please CLICK HERE for instructions on how to complete and submit the form.
