Orchestra Boosters

The Orchestra Boosters Club was established in 2003 (HHS’s opening year) to help create a strong high school orchestra program that would enhance our children’s musical education. Our goal is to help raise funds to supplement the program’s budget while fostering healthy student and parent involvement.

Over the past years, the club has sponsored car washes, held various raffles, and sold concert CDs. We welcome your participation and encourage you to attend our monthly meetings. With the smaller student enrollment in orchestra (compared to the band and chorus), it is imperative that we can count on all of our orchestra parents and students for their support during the school year.

Although we try to keep our fundraising to a minimum, we hope you will participate whenever possible. Some of the items funded by the club include:

  • competition entry fees

  • snacks for rehearsal and bus trips

  • senior and teacher gifts

  • miscellaneous classroom supplies

  • annual trip travel expenses
