Oak Grove Band Boosters 

The Oak Grove Band Boosters is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the band programs at both OGMS and OGHS, to provide resources, and show our pride in the commitment and growth of these excellent programs.

Some may think that the opening of new schools comes with adequate funding for the band program, but that isn’t the case.  The County has provided monies to help with basics, but unlike other seasoned programs who have items such as instruments, music and gear accumulated over the years, our band program start-up needs are expensive and the County has also cut budgets to the program this year.

Did you know that it costs approximately $60,000 - $70,000 per year for the band program?  County funding doesn’t provide enough to cover costs so the Band Boosters fill in the gaps to provide the items needed to see the vision of this excellent program continue to grow.  With over 400 students participating in both middle and high school bands, we are poised to be one of the most competitive programs in the County and see no signs of slowing down in years ahead.  We need your help!  How?
