Band Boosters

If you have a student enrolled in any of the bands at Washington High School, then you are a member! We are a group of parents committed to enhancing the experience of our band students by:

- Providing and organizing volunteers for various band activities

- Facilitating communication between our band directors and our band parents

-Managing fundraisers for students to help offset the cost of band activities

- Advocating for the band program to the greater Sioux Falls community

Why get involved? The parents are fun, the kids are a blast, and the music is superb. You can take on a big role or be an occasional volunteer – or even just come to our meetings and listen to what’s going on in the band program. Band Booster meetings are held the second Monday of the month at 7 PM in the band room (no meeting in June).

We’d love to see you there!


In the late summer and fall, you’ll see dozens of parents helping out the Warrior Marching Band: fitting uniforms, making costumes, flags, and props for the color guard, moving percussion equipment for performances, chaperoning, providing refreshments for long bus rides and helping the kids and the directors do whatever has to be done.

​Parents may provide support for concerts, clean the stands at Howard Wood Field, and even help work concessions at basketball games. The Sioux Falls Washington High School Band Boosters are also often looking for active parents to fill committee chair or executive committee positions!

Links and notifications about volunteering opportunities will be posted on our volunteer/livestream links page, and you can have these emailed directly to you by registering with our Charms system.

For those interested in chaperoning, please fill out the form below and return it to Mr. Kenny. All unsupervised volunteers (including chaperones) must complete a background check. The online form is accessible below.

The annual Festival of Bands USA (FOB) marching band competition brings in nearly 15,000 students and spectators, and requires plenty of adult -- and student -- volunteers!

Learn more about FOB volunteer jobs below, and stay tuned for sign-up times as the event approaches.
