Parent and Family Organizations
Vicksburg is fortunate to have parents sponsor and be involved in several organizations for students at each of our schools!
Athletic Boosters: This group of more than 50 parents is active as a fund raising group for the enhancement of Vicksburg Athletics. All adults are welcome to be a part of this group, even if you don’t have a student in the athletic program. Meetings are held once a month and ideas are always welcome. Following is a list of just a FEW of the many items the Athletic Boosters have provided since 1985: scholarships, tennis wind screens, locker rooms, wrestling mats, soccer/football scoreboard, batting cages, golf cart, pole vault pit, ultra sound machine, concession stand/press box for softball, cheerleading mats, and volleyball equipment for the middle school. All in all, the Athletic Boosters have contributed $192,040 since 1985!
Band Boosters: The Vicksburg Band Parents Association is comprised of dedicated & hard working parent volunteers. The group meets on a monthly basis. Besides the school system, the band parents are the primary funding source for the band. The band parents hold 4-5 fundraisers per year. In addition to student fundraisers, the band parents set up concession stands at the Old Car Festival, Varsity Football Games and boys & girls basketball. The group also sponsors the annual Friends of the Vicksburg Bands fund drive. In 2001, the band parents hosted the District XI Middle School Band Festival and the MSBOA State Band Festival at VHS. All parents of middle & high school students are encouraged to attend the monthly band parent meetings!
Choir Boosters: The Vicksburg High School Choir Boosters is a parent organization that focuses on heightening the experiences of the students involved in the VHS Choral Program. By organizing and chaperoning choir trips, sponsoring fundraisers and organizing choral concerts and events, the Choir Boosters are integral to the success of the VHS Choirs. We consider every VHS Choir Parent to be a booster member. If you have a student singing in one of the VHS Choirs, become involved and help our choral program grow!
Project Graduation: Parents of the current year senior class make up this group. They do several fundraisers throughout the year for the Grad Bash that is held on the night of graduation. The seniors are taken to an undisclosed location for an evening of safe drug/alcohol free fun. Some of the fundraisers include a golf outing, an adult barn dance, a craft show, and the Christmas Home Tour. The parents also try to do special things for the seniors each month. These are called FSOs (For Seniors Only).
