FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The South Carroll Instrumental Music Boosters (SCIMB) are all of the families of students who participate in any of the instrumental music program ensembles. Boosters plan, organize, raise money, and generally assist Mr. Stevenson as necessary. We are volunteers who rely on all parents to contribute a helping hand.
Q: Isn’t SCIMB only for Marching Band?
A: No. SCIMB supports all ensembles. We are volunteers committed to the success of all aspects of the instrumental music program.
Q: How do I join SCIMB?
A: If you are the parent or guardian of a student in the instrumental music program you are already a member of the SCIMB.
Q: How can I get involved?
A: Participate in something! There are many opportunities to volunteer and the Boosters can almost always use help with something.
Introduce yourself to other parents and the Directors. We don’t always recognize each other, especially in a crowd. Even if you’re shy, try to meet some other people.
Learn the names of students in your student’s section, especially the name of section leader(s).

Occasionally, dates and times will change. The changes will be announced at practices and in instrumental music classes and are often emailed/posted on our Facebook page as well.
Q: What activities are available to students who are not in marching band?
A: Concerts, All County Band/Orchestra, All State Band/Orchestra, musicals, performing arts ensembles, performing arts showcase, Tri-M, and many other opportunities that come up throughout the year. There are also scholarships for seniors majoring in music after high school.
