A note from the SSHS Band Boosters
Band Meeting Minutes
If you have a student in the high school band, then you are a member of the Band Boosters. The Band Boosters are the strength of the SSHS Band Program. We take care of several things...we organize parent chaperones for the various trips/contests, we feed the kids during summer band and throughout the year, we help make sure the uniforms are clean and fit correctly, we host the marching contest in the fall, and we also are in charge of the concession stand during football and basketball season. We are committed to making more information available to you so you have every opportunity to get involved in this exciting program! As always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Band Boosters Handbook
The Siloam Springs Band Boosters are among the largest and hardest working support groups in the Siloam Springs community. The success of the band program is directly related to the dedication and commitment of this group of volunteers. I appreciate you taking the time to read and familiarize yourself with the policies and areas of service found in the handbook. I encourage each of you to be involved with the booster organization and the music education of your children! It is my privilege to be the Director of Bands in Siloam Springs. I am excited about the 2017-18 school year and look forward to working with each of you.
-Mr. Daniel Hodge, Director of Bands
Every participating student benefits from the band program. Therefore, every parent/guardian is an honorary Siloam Springs Band Booster.
It is fun to see our kids thrive and succeed. Get involved today!
