Dow High Band Parent Meeting and Party on Monday, August 16 at 7 pm

Welcome new and returning Dow High Charger band families!  Join us for a brief parent information meeting in the Dow High cafeteria on Monday, August 16th at 7 pm.  The meeting will be followed by entertainment from the Charger Marching Band and an ice cream party! 

The parent meeting will cover important information about the Dow High Music Boosters group, your student’s uniform wear and care, spirit items that are available to order, and opportunities to get involved with the Dow High Music Boosters that support music programs at Dow High.  Because the parent meeting will be held indoors, masks would be greatly appreciated while in the Dow High cafeteria.


At 7:30 pm there will be a special performance by the Dow High Charger Marching Band, and after the performance families are invited to join the band for an ice cream party hosted by the Dow High Music Boosters.

For questions regarding the parent meeting or Dow High Music Boosters, contact Erin Lauderbach, DHMB president, at:  ejlauder@aol.com

We can’t wait to see you all next Monday night!  GO CHARGERS!

The Dow High Turf Field is Almost Here!

The Dow High turf team has raised over $1.5M, making the dream of a turf field very close to becoming a reality. The final stage of the project, which will include lights so the field can be used at night, will require an additional $70,000.

This first class video, put together by Dow High student, Maddy Estes, is a testament to the amazing athletes, coaches, musicians and traditions that have been a part of Dow High School for over fifty years. Please enjoy watching the clip below and seeing names and faces of Dow High greats over the years, and then consider making a donation to this worthy project. Every dollar counts!

DHS Music Boosters Seek Sponsors for 2020-2021

Dow High Music Boosters is looking for local businesses or families interested in partnering with our organization as sponsors for the 2020-2021 school year.

Given the uncertain times and restrictions we are facing with gatherings, our three typical fundraisers, RenFair, Fruit Sale & Jazz and More may not be able to be held or look different than in the past. This makes our sponsors even more critical and valuable to fundraising efforts this year!

This year’s goal is to raise a combined $25,000 to help finance virtual concert videography, instrument purchases/repairs, music, new orchestra folders, choir uniform purchases/repairs, scholarships for private lessons and other operational expenses that fall outside the MPS budget.

Please click on the sponsorship form to see details of sponsorship levels. Sponsorships will be accepted at any time, but please consider pledging your support by Friday, November 20 to assist with our financial planning. By partnering with Dow High Music Boosters, you join a community that supports and genuinely impacts the outstanding music programs offered at DHS! Feel free to contact us at DHSMusicSponsors@gmail.com with any questions.
