Calling All Parents

Behind every great high school band program is a special group of people. Parents!
The success of our students and the band program as a whole wouldn’t be possible without our great parents.

Please consider becoming a volunteer as well as a Band Booster!

How Can I Help?

Volunteers fill many needs. From moving equipment to chaperoning students at events and during transportation. As well as assisting during fundraisers and other band events.

Marching band is a rather large undertaking and requires the most amount of volunteer support. The remainder of the year the needs tend to be less, but we still need your help!   

When the need arises, an official volunteer signup request will be sent out via Cuttime. Specific jobs will be listed so you can sign up wherever you feel you can be the most help.

Please make sure you are signed up for Cuttime and download Slack as these are the primary methods of communications for the program. 

We will have a parent night during Summer Band Camp to introduce the Director, Staff and The Band Boosters.  Please make sure you can attend. Check the Band Calendar for exact dates. 



Cuttime is an invite only platform that the DV Instrumental Music Program uses as the main communication tool to:

— Communicate with parents
— Share details about Events and Concerts. 
— Volunteer requests and sign-ups
— Track Student Fees
— Weekly Directors Notes


Slack is a group messaging application and is used for more real-time communications with parents as well as students.

We have several groups available such as Marching Band, Parents, Boosters, etc. These groups and Slack in general are a great way to quickly communicate in real-time during events.

You can find Slack in the App Store or Google Play.


Please complete the required paperwork per the district and DVHS Administration.

New paperwork must be submitted for each year that you participate.
Please complete your paperwork as soon as possible. Scan as a PDF file (no pictures please) and email it to The Volunteer Coordinator. If you don’t have access to a scanner, please send it with your student to Mrs. Govan.
