The Edison High School Band & Color Guard is a program run by volunteers. If your child is in Band or Color Guard then you are a Booster, and we need every Booster to volunteer! Not only will you enjoy participating in this activity with your child, you will get to meet other parents and your child will appreciate how your participation and contribution enhances his or her Band or Color Guard experience. Below are many of the positions and descriptions that we need to staff to make our operations and performances successful.
