Weekly Booster News - April 1, 2024

Updated: Apr 1

Good morning Dragon Band Families!


I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend.  Good luck to our JV and Varsity Guard as they compete this coming weekend  in College Station at the state competition. Ticket and other information can be found here. Go Rock Guard!!


There are several important positions that are still open that are very important to our organization.  Please look through these position descriptions and consider taking on one of these roles.


Rock Guard State Send Off- Thursday, April 4th


Come see our JV and Varsity perform their show one more time before their state competition!  The show will start at 7 pm in the 100 Gym.  

This weekend, our Varsity will perform on Saturday, April 6th at 3:46 pm and JV will perform on Sunday, April 7th at 9:16 am.  Both will take place at Reed Arena on the Texas A&M campus. 


Uniform Parent Needed!

Do you like working with some amazing teens? Are you an organizer? 

Then we have a volunteer job for you!  Can you sew?  Great, but definitely not required!

This job mainly requires being in charge of  keeping the uniforms and uniforms parts organized, fit and altered  for the kids. You will work with the uniform crew team to assist the kids with uniform needs during marching season.

We have new uniforms, so you will have a fresh slate of uniforms to start off with. There is already a team of moms that are wonderful at making the alterations and I will train and guide volunteers in the next year.

Contact Laura Garland if you are interested or have questions

510-504-2862



BCOB Representative Needed!

Do you like data analysis? How about making it easy for 70 volunteers to work football concessions each week? The BCOB representative from RRHS works each week to order and stock food, drinks, and supplies for JV and Varsity football concessions at Dragon Stadium. Make your best guess from weather reports, school enrollment, special events, and previous games. Place your orders and load the shelves. Take inventory on Saturday and see how you did! 


* The BCOB meets once a month, year-round.

* During football season, the RRHS representative takes care of most food, supplies, and equipment in the Dragon Stadium concession stands. They also report issues with the facility to administration and facilities staff.

* The BCOB takes the lead during the post-season, acting as concessionaire for all playoff games scheduled at RRISD stadiums.

* The BCOB representative will hold the keys, must attend BCOB meetings, and will have access to the BCOB Google Workspace. Other RR Band Booster parents can help with inventory, deliveries, and playoffs.

* All suppliers are direct-billed. The BCOB representative should not have to spend their own money or seek reimbursement.

* It's a great way to meet parents from other band programs!
