Haltom Area Band Friends
The Haltom Area Band Friends (HABF), our band booster organization, is a non-profit, (501c3) tax-exempt organization that exists to support the band programs of Haltom High School, Haltom Middle School, North Oaks Middle School and Watauga Middle School.
The HABF organization is vital to the operation of our band programs. The program’s success depends on parental commitment, time, and resources. Our directors are dedicated, talented, hard-working teachers and mentors. But they need our help and support, as do our young musicians. Led by an elected Board of Directors, all parents of all students involved in these band programs are automatically members, as are the students themselves. You do not need to sign up to be a member, and there are no dues.
Board meetings are open to the public and all are welcome, although only Board members can vote on Board decisions. Any booster who has an item that he or she would like to present to the Board should contact the booster president before the meeting to be placed on the agenda. Or, any booster can contact a Board member who will then bring that item before the Board.
Booster Club meetings are held every month at HHS. Please try to set aside this evening each month to be an active part of the group. At the meeting, you will receive information from the Board and the directors, hear committee reports, receive financial updates, and have an opportunity to take an active part in band activities. If you can’t attend a meeting, please check your band newsletter for current events and activities. When volunteers are needed, the contact person’s name and phone number are listed in the newsletter or website.
Everyone is welcome, so come out and participate whenever possible. Even if your time is limited (whose isn’t?), there are countless ways in which you can make the band program even better! Your talents and abilities are needed. Please get involved. Together we can make it happen! And you’ll get to know your child’s friends and the parents of your child’s friends while you support a super activity for your child – instrumental and visual performers.
The mission of the Haltom Area Band Friends:
