PROPOSED REVISION TO BAND BOOSTERS BY-LAWS
By-laws are rules established by an organization to regulate itself, as allowed by state and federal statutes. A lot has changed since the Band Boosters by-laws were last revised in 1982. The By-laws Committee has provided an updated version that will be presented for approval at the October 10, 2017 Boosters Meeting. To save on paper and printing, copies will not be distributed at the meeting. You may wish to print your own copies for review.

 WASHINGTON D.C. OR BUST! – May 24-28, 2018


The John F. Kennedy High School Marching Band & Color Guard will
officially represent the State of California in Washington D.C. in the
2018 National Memorial Day Parade
(The link above is to the 2017 event; 2018 is not available yet.)
With this great honor comes great responsibility.
It is going to take some serious funding (approximately $225,000)
to send the band and color guard to D.C. with their uniforms and
instruments. The goal of the Band Boosters is to raise the money
needed to send every student to D.C. Please note that students
who have paid their 2017-18 Fair ShareFees ($425)
in full are eligible to attend this elective trip.
