Re: Rural school & parent organizations
1) Have a different group of students perform each month and hold the booster meeting immediately after and keep the parents there of the students that are performing. Or start the concert with the meeting. Your booster meetings need to brief and to the point if you do this, then hold your officers a little longer and dismiss everyone else...some parents will be so curious they'll stay
2) The best thing I've found that works are personal invites to help. I've spent a chunk of a Saturday just emailing individual parents "Johnny's so great, thanks for a great kid, can you help me with something...time-consuming on my part but for some strange reason, flattering to the parents that I actually know who they are.
