About the Boosters

The Band Boosters are a Not-for-Profit organization that was founded to help the San Elijo Middle School Band and Choir Programs meet its financial needs & obligations.

We also are responsible for much of the administration of the approx 650 students in Band and Choir. And last but not least, we help ensure that the students are comfortable and prepared both in the band/choir room and during the various off-campus activities.

Booster meetings are held monthly at SEMS in Room 501. Anyone is welcome to attend - please check the calendar for the next meeting date.

Booster at large doesn't hold a formal board position, but attend most all Booster meetings to support the band and choir program.  It is a great way to get involved if you can't make a formal commitment to a board position!
