THE BOOSTERS

Who We Are

The Napa High School Instrumental Music (NHSIM) Boosters proudly provides the financial and volunteer support needed to allow the programs, including Band, Orchestra and Color Guard, grow and thrive. The Boosters include parents, family and friends plus community supporters. 

The Boosters raise the money for almost everything the NHSIM program needs including instruments, equipment, uniforms, transportation, coaches, substitute teachers and more. Also, we provide chaperones and drivers to ensure the attendance and safety of the students at football games, parades, competitions, local school visits and Tour.

As we all know, school funds are very limited for performing arts. In fact, the district pays only for Mr. Riendeau’s salary and a small amount for sheet music and instrument repair. Everything else is paid for by the NHSIM Boosters.


How You Can Help Now as a NHSIM Student Family!

In order to continue ensuring that every NHSIM student has the best experience that band, orchestra, color guard, jazz band, drumline and guitar can possibly provide, we expect the following:

  • BINGO: Each NHSIM family commits to working ONE (1) Saturday per year at BINGO. Did you know that BINGO raises nearly 70% of the needed funds for the Boosters annual budget? This fun community supported game is held year round so contact bingo.scheduler@napahighband.org to schedule a Saturday. Most shifts start at 3:30pm. No previous experience required! Onsite training will be provided by our friendly team.

Also, we ask the following of each NHSIM family:

  • SUSTAINMENT: Each NHSIM family financially contribute just a portion of the annual student support provided by the Boosters each year. It's easy! Just click here to make your contribution.
