DHHS Band Boosters volunteers work together to help fund and facilitate every ensemble in Dixie Heights Bands. Our students would have no instrumental music activities without the efforts of our volunteers.
If you’re thinking about helping our bands for the first time, here are several ongoing volunteer opportunities. This list isn’t comprehensive, but it might help you figure out where to begin.
- Concessions (our biggest moneymaker!)
- Props and logistics (no skills required)
- Marching Band uniforms
- Marching Band food service (camps & competitions)
- Fundraisers (craft fair, fish fry, spirit wear, restaurant nights & more)
- Annual Band family events (holiday dinner, Spring banquet)
- Tabling at Band concerts
Even if none of your kids are enrolled in Band, you’re welcome to help out. Just reach out to the Dixie Heights front office or the Director of Bands, and they’ll be happy to connect you with a volunteer who will help you get started.
Background check (required)
Kenton County Schools must have a current criminal record check prior to allowing an adult volunteer to participate in activities attended by our students. The application form, volunteer handbook and other important details are on the KCSD website.
The approval process usually takes one to four weeks. If approved, you will get notified in an email from Pretrial Services in Frankfort. Volunteers are approved for up to three years.
For questions relating to the background check or District volunteer policies and procedures, please call the Central Office at 859-344-8888.
