The Oakton Bands Need Your Help!

It takes hundreds of volunteers to keep the Oakton Band program running smoothly. Every year, dedicated parent volunteers help in a variety of areas including: chaperones, uniforms, fundraising, spirit wear, hospitality, website, set construction, pit crew, transportation, and more!

Because of our volunteers, our exceptional band directors can concentrate on educating our students and leading them to musical success.

Our seasonal activities with the Marching program – band camp, football games, and competitions – require the peak of our time and energy, but our year-round efforts benefit the entire band program including the jazz and concert bands. And we don’t stop there! The band parents’ organization also hosts an annual marching competition, the Oakton Classic, at Oakton High School which is not only a fundraiser, but is a source of pride for the entire Oakton community.

The Oakton Classic is recognized as one of the most organized and premier marching competitions in the region. This endeavor alone takes months of planning and the participation of the directors, students and hundreds of volunteers working throughout the day.

To maintain the extraordinary level of the Oakton Band program, EVERYONE needs to help. Please consider donating some of your time, energy, and talent by volunteering with the Band Boosters. Your efforts will be very much appreciated, you'll get to spend more time with your band student, you’ll meet new friends, and you’ll have FUN in the process!
