CASTLEBERRY BAND BOOSTERS 

Castleberry Band Boosters provides support and promotes the band students of Castleberry High School and Irma Marsh Middle School. The Castleberry Bands strive to create an environment, using performance as a base, which will foster, challenge, and motivate its members to develop a passion for music and an understanding that it is a vital part of the human experience. However, we recognize that the musical result of this performance is just a small part of the equation, so the larger goal is to use band as a tool to develop a well-rounded young person who understands the need for self-discipline, hard work, and dedication, stressing that persistence is perhaps the greatest of character traits.
