Booster Information

The Upland Highland Regiment Boosters

Mission Statement
The mission of the Upland Highland Regiment boosters is to provide support for the Instrumental Music Program as it enhances the lives of the students enrolled by providing various opportunities for volunteering and fundraising which is needed for a successful high school experience.

Purpose
The Upland Highland Regiment Boosters is a volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the goals of the instrumental music program at Upland High School. The hard work and dedication of our staff and students are the main reasons for the success of the program. It is the job of the Boosters (Parents/Guardians) to:
•    Provide the volunteer hours necessary to organize the equipment, transportation, uniforms, and other support services a dynamic organization like the
     Regiment requires.
•    Raise the funds necessary to sustain our Instrumental Music Program and augment the financial support provided by the Upland Unified School District.
     This is achieved through annual Regiment fees and various fundraisers.

Membership
All parents or guardians of a student in the Upland High School Highland Regiment are members of the Upland Highland Regiment Boosters. Any other person who has an interest in the Upland Highland Regiment may become a member upon written request with UHRB Board approval as per the UHRB bylaws.

Meetings
As a booster member the expectation is that you will attend the booster parent meetings held generally on the first Thursday of each month. These meetings are held at 7 PM in the Library (cafeteria or staff lounge when available) and usually last about an hour. This is a great time to meet other band parents, get the latest news about band activities and accomplishments, and sign up to help with future activities. Elections for the new Booster Board are held the first Thursday in May.
