High School Band Concert

 The Hudsonville High School bands had their last concert of the school year Tuesday, May 15th.   During the last Jazz Band song, the Jazz Band played with a special guest drummer, who ended up     being our very own Mr. Roh (Hudsonville High School Assistant Prinicpal)!

 Congraulations Bands and Mr. Roh on another amazing concert!














Today, May 9th,  Mr. Jacobs & Mr. Sheckler received our $1,000 check from SpartanNash thanks to their Direct Your Dollars program!!

Thank you to those who saved and turned in your receipts this past year! We couldn't have done it without you.

Please continue saving and turning in your receipts (each band room has their own direct your dollars box) as we are now working towards our second $1,000!

Totally 80's Fundraiser



Thank you to everyone that came out and attended our Totally 80's Night!  It was a fun night listening to StarFarm and going down memory lane hearing and singing away to music we haven't heard in a long time. What I thought was really awesome besides seeing all the band parents there, was seeing and meeting people that don't even have children in our band program (or our schools) support our students! 
  
Many thanks to Charity Henkelman, Annette, McBride, Mary Immink, Susan Ghysels, Wendy Poel, Suzanne Gortsema, Jessica Davis, Mel Barker, and Tracy Mann for planning such a fun event!

BAND BOOSTER MEETING

What is Hudsonville Band Boosters? Hudsonville Band Boosters is a non-profit group comprised mostly of band parents (6th–12th grade) and our band directors. Our goal is to provide the support and resources needed to build & sustain a nationally recognized band program. 

The Boosters meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month to discuss issues relating to the band programs including budget & fundraisers, upcoming concerts, trips, updates from the band directors and more.

All parents of band students, past band students or anyone that would like to help Hudsonville Bands are welcome and encouraged to attend.

 We hope to see you there!



Direct Your Dollars Fundraiser


This is such an easy fundraiser that everyone in Hudsonville Bands can help with!    All you have to do is......
  1. Shop at any Spartan Store 
  2. Save your receipt 
  3. Turn it into the designated box in your band room!  
  4. Watch our totals grow on Hudsonville Bands website

It's that simple! There is no door to door selling, just saving receipts and turning them in.  To make things better... if you are participating in Scrip, make sure you order your Family Fare Gift Card and 2% will go into your child's band account to pay for future band expenses!   Can you say a win-win!! 

If you would like, you can ask your Family, Friends, Neighbors, Co-workers.. etc to save their receipts so we can get to $150,000 that much faster!  The great thing is once we do hit that magic number, we can start the collecting all over again so we can earn that next $1000!

Just a reminder.... We do need the whole original receipt to earn the $1,000 donation.  Please no partial receipts or photocopies as they will not count.
