Rochester’s Christmas program will be taking place tomorrow night at the same time as the Band Booster meeting. They will be using the band room for staging, so the booster meeting will be held across the hall in room 907. Hope to see you there!
Band Booster Meeting
Posted: Monday, December 2, 2013
This month’s booster meeting is this Thursday night in the band room. As announced earlier, the band will be traveling to the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas in December, 2014. An initial check with bus company estimates the buses will be approximately $6,400 each, with the band needing at least four buses. The current estimated cost per student for the trip—not including the cost of the buses—is $515. One of the booster club’s primary goals is to cover as much of the cost of the buses as we can. Any remaining uncovered portion of the cost is then divided up and added to the individual students’ cost for the trip.
The funds raised from last spring’s auction and BBQ dinner went toward last April’s trip to Winter Park. Since the Alamo Bowl trip will take place in December, 2014, it will precede the Spring 2015 auction. This means we will only have a single auction to raise funds for the trip. This spring’s auction/dinner is February 15th, so we only have just over two months remaining to prepare. There’s a lot of planning and preparation that needs to be done in those two months, so please plan to come to the upcoming meetings!
If you are the parent of an 8th-grade band member who will be joining the high school band next year, you are welcome and encouraged to come to the booster club meetings and become involved this year.
