BJH Instrumental Music Boosters
No instrumental music program can function efficiently without the support of the parents!
The Brea Junior High Instrumental Music Booster Club is an nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is independent from Brea Junior High School and the Brea Olinda Unified School District. The organization is the “PTA of the music program" -- it exists for the purpose of supporting the instrumental music program, both financially and physically. At Brea Junior High, we have an outstanding and competitive instrumental music program that has become extremely reputable and respected in southern California and beyond. In order for us to maintain the excellent quality of our music program, parent support is not only absolutely crucial, but expected.
The Brea Olinda Unified School District does not provide any funding for our instrumental music program; therefore all finances must be covered by donations and fundraising. In addition, our program has grown tremendously in size over the past several years, creating an ongoing need for more instruments and equipment than ever before. You are strongly encouraged to contribute to our cause however possible. By donating to our program, you will be certain that you will directly benefit YOUR child!
Funds raised go towards budget categories including but not limited to:
- Sheet music ($1,500 per year)
- Transportation and festival/competition fees ($3,000 per year)
- School instrument repairs and maintenance ($1,500 per year)
- Music t-shirts and uniform expenses ($1,500 per year)
- End of year banquet ($2,000 per year)
- Purchase of additional instruments (ongoing)
- Purchase of classroom technology (ongoing)
By having a child in a BJH instrumental music program, you are automatically a member of the band boosters; however, our executive board (which includes a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer as well as various committee chairs) forms the nucleus of the group. We strongly encourage you to get involved as an officer or serve on a committee! Whether or not you serve as an officer, however, you are ALWAYS welcome and encouraged to attend booster meetings. The meetings occur only once a month, and notification will be sent to your home to remind you prior to each meeting. Currently we meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm in the BJH Music Room.
Let’s work together to provide your children the music education they so deserve!
Next meeting: Thursday, November 16 at 7:00 pm in the Music Room
