Frequently Asked Questions
How can I stay informed of band-related activities and last-minute changes?
The web site is updated frequently, but to be sure you receive all the essential information, especially late-breaking news, you should subscribe to the appropriate Remind 101.
How do I get spirit items, shirts, jackets, etc.?
Spirit Wear items are offered for sale annually shortly after the end of band camp. More detailed information is announced on Parent Night. Be sure to check this website, our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, or for messages in Remind 101 in addition to information usually sent home with students regarding Spirt Wear.
What is a student band account?
A student band account is an account kept on a student’s behalf by the Financial Operations Manager of the Rodriguez Music Boosters. A portion of the proceeds from some fund-raising activities that the student participates in is placed into the student’s account. You can use the band account to pay for Fair Share or for donation to the Rodriguez Music Boosters fundraising efforts..
As a parent, how can I become more involved with the band program?
Many opportunities to be involved present themselves throughout the year, including simply attending band shows and events. The best way to get involved, however, is to come to Band Boosters meetings or volunteer to work at or organize various events, e.g., chaperoning a band trip, setup & clearnup, Pit Crew, cooking, serving, transporting or even being a door monitor for our hosted events. Donations of snacks and beverages are welcome as well. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator and/or Boosters president (listed on the Board Members page) if you think you might like to volunteer.
How do I join the Rodriguez Music Boosters?
If you have a child in the band program, you’re already a member. The first Parent/Guardian membership is included in your Fair Share contribution. However, Additional Parent/Guardian Memberships can be added using this form. Parents and guardians are asked to support the organization by volunteering whenever possible. In addition to helping to enrich your child’s experience, volunteering is a great way to meet other band parents. Many close friendships have started while serving in the concession stand, chaperoning, working in the pit crew, etc. Booster meetings are held usually the last Tuesday of every month, check the RHSEU Calendar to be sure. Just show up and see what’s it’s all about!
Are family and friends invited to attend marching band competitions?
Not only invited, but strongly encouraged. Many marching-band families attend every competition, and almost everyone attends at least one. The more the merrier, since a strong cheering section can energize the band and lead to a stronger showing.
