Vanguard Involved Parent Support Team is the 501(c)(3) non-profit parent band booster for the Verrado Viper Vanguard band programs.
The VIPS Team sponsors and organizes events, which deepen our community spirit and enhance our children's educational experience at the Viper Vanguard.
We are excited to see what our group will accomplish together. Your support is crucial to the success of the Verrado High School Band program (marching, drumline, color guard, symphonic and jazz band). You are a member of the VIPS Team if your child is in the band; no membership fee!
We look forward to getting to know you and your band student!
