The diverse Los Gatos community is home to families in many different circumstances. Some have plenty of assets, and would rather just pay the shared costs of the Music program. Others have more need, and would rather pay less. And some can pay, but enjoy volunteering for its own sake—or want to save the money! We value all of our families, whatever the circumstances and motivations. LGHS Music Boosters offers the volunteer credit in recognition of the large amount of effort many families put into the Marching Band program. This FAQ answers some of the questions that families may have about the volunteer credit.
When a student leaves the Music program, the remaining volunteer credit, if any, can be (a) donated to the Music Boosters for a tax deduction, (b) rolled over to a sibling who is in or will be entering the music program, or (c) refunded to the family. Option (a) is our default; the other two are available by request to firstname.lastname@example.org. For sibling rollovers, a gap of one year is OK. In other words, if your son graduates this year, and your daughter is in 7th grade and will enter the program in two years, we can hold that volunteer credit for you.
