The UHS Band is fortunate to have a highly efficient and effective boosters organization.
This boosters organization does a lot of its work through electronic means now, but we do schedule meetings several times a year to plan major events. Meeting times are announced through the various communication tools that the band has set up.
We invite all parents and/or guardians to participate.
