We are still in need of covering many expenses from marching season as well as spring groups.  Please do not forget to continue to cover expenses associated with participation in the program.  Please remember Scrip, See’s Candy, Help-A-Hawk, Ralph’s Rewards, etc. that can also supplement donations. 
Donations / Contributions / Payments:
All checks, whether for Band, Jazz, Drumline or Guard…, whether for clothing, fairshare, or banquet…..should be written out to El Dorado Band Boosters.

Please let us know if you have any questions:


Hockey Fundraiser Update!
Students, as a reminder, please turn in your order forms and money this Wednesday to the black box, so we can get a preliminary count on tickets for the Reign organization. We will continue to sell tickets through February 7th, which is 1 week from Friday.

We will have a Sign Up Genius for “Chuck A Puck” sales at the game next week, and we need your help! Remember please that even if you’re planning on coming to the game to sell the “Chuck A Puck” chances, you will need to purchase a ticket.

For any questions regarding this fundraiser, please contact Andy at

Upcoming Fundraising Events
1)SCSBOA Concert Band and Orchestra Festival Concessions for March 24th and 25th. Look for the Sign-Up Genius coming your way (by 2/14) for volunteer sign-ups and food/supply donations.  
***If you are interested in being a chairperson for one or both days please contact Lori at  As a chairperson you will basically coordinate with me the food and volunteers – it would be great to be there at the beginning of the day and pop in throughout the day.  This would be a huge help!!!  

2)Spring/Easter See’s Candy Sales – Coming in early March! 

Color Guard 

We have 2 fundraising opportunities to help support our Color Guard teams:

You can purchase Super Bowl squares from any Guard member for $10 each.


You can still buy $5 Carl’s Jr. booklets from any Guard member.

If you have any questions, please contact Heidi at

Winter Indoor Percussion/Drumline

Drumline uniform payments are now past due.  If you have not covered the expenses of your drumline uniform, payment is due ASAP.  We cannot finalize our purchase without having the funds to cover our invoice.  Please send the payment in this week.  Also, please remember to continue to cover the fair-share expenses as well.
