Welcome back Dragon Band Families, and to those new families who have just joined us, WELCOME!
We are so excited about this season. It will no doubt make some Dreams come true.
Here are just a few things to know before to help make the season run smoothly.
We have updated our email distribution list with this year’s contacts. Are you receiving them? If not, please join our list today: We will send a weekly email every Monday filled with important Band Booster News. This is the best way to stay up to date on everything that is going on in the busy life of a Band Family. If you would like to change how you receive these emails, you can always update your preferences or unsubscribe from this list at any time. Just remember that this is the primary source of information from the Dragon Band Boosters! Also, if you ever have a question, simply reply to this weekly email and we’ll be sure to get you an answer.
Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. These social media pages will include updates during events, football games, contests, concerts and more. Also, make sure you bookmark the dragonbandboosters.com website. There you will find all of the detailed information pertaining to the booster organization including the booster calendar of events and the ever important Dragon Band Calendar.
At the beginning of each school year the Dragon Band and Dragon Band Boosters hold a day to take care of a lot of important business. This is when you pick up your summer uniforms and practice shirts, fill out all of the necessary paperwork, and take care of your family funding commitments. We call it Everything Day because we try to cover EVERYTHING in just one day. The day will start with a section meeting for you and your student; this is mandatory and very important. This is where you will receive all of the necessary documents and forms that you will need to complete.
This year Everything Day is on Saturday July 28th. Please mark your calendars. Each Student and their Parent/Guardian has a section meeting to attend at their designated time below. We need you there with your student to accomplish everything and to make it all run smoothly. Please make every effort to attend at the time of your student’s section. NOTE: These section times are different than in years past in an effort to streamline the day for everyone involved.
9:00 am - Color Guard & French Horns
10:00 am - Flutes
11:00 am - Trumpets
12:00 pm - Saxophones
1pm - Trombones
2pm - Clarinets
3pm - Percussion
4pm - Euphoniums & Tubas
Some important reminders about Everything Day.
Please come at your scheduled section time.
You and your Student are both necessary and need to attend TOGETHER.
Please volunteer to help but do not volunteer for time slots that overlap with your scheduled section times if possible.
Please do not sign up for uniform fittings or other activities during your section time slot.
It will take approximately 1 hour to complete the section meeting, navigate all of the information stations, fill out all of the forms, and check out.
Band Student Drop-Off and Parking
With a band our size it is critical that we ALL follow drop-off and parking rules all year long. When dropping off your student, please DO NOT proceed down the dead end road toward the band hall. This is reserved for loading equipment, faculty and staff only. Please drop off your student in the Administration parking lot, or along the road in front of the Marching Band Blacktop.
For more detailed information, please review this video: https://youtu.be/2ETlEcUhYOg
Please note that parking is limited at RRHS. Students should always park in the assigned student parking lots and not park in the administration building parking lot (this includes during summer band). Parents, you may park in the Administration parking lot when waiting to pick up your student. Please NEVER stop or park in fire lanes or loading zones. These areas are clearly marked with yellow or red paint. This includes the curbs along the roads leading to the administration parking lot, band hall and marching black top. This is NOT a place to park or wait for your student. Your student should walk to meet you in the admin parking lot.
Following these simple rules will keep traffic flowing all year long. Thank you for your cooperation.
