Join the band for their annual Band-A-Thon in the neighborhood of Round Rock West. The band will kick off with a parade through the streets from RRHS, and stop at Deep Wood Elementary school for a water break and then continue on to RRHS for a concert on the marching black top.
This fall of 2016, The Round Rock High School Dragon Band will be performing their Varsity show titled Triptych.
The Round Rock High School Dragon Band participated in the Bands of America Grand Nationals competition at Lucas Oil Stadium in November of 2013 and 2015 where they placed 4th and 7th respectively out of approx. 100 bands! They also received the caption for Best Music Performance in 2013 Semi-Finals. You may also remember that they represented Round Rock in the 2015 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California!
The Round Rock High School Dragon Band is one of the largest student organizations in Round Rock ISD and one of the most successful in central Texas! With approximately 360 students performing this fall – and the additional 600+ future Dragon Band members from our three feeder middle schools – the Dragon Band and its booster organization is a far reaching group.
Today, the band asks for you to support the program’s success by making a donation towards their annual Band-A-Thon. The Band-A-Thon will take place on Saturday, August 13th from 9am until noon. They will march from Round Rock High School through the Round Rock West neighborhood, stopping at Deepwood Elementary School for a brief water break before marching back to the high school and performing for the crowd on the marching black top. The total round trip is approximately 2.5 miles and will take approx. three hours.
The per student fundraising goal is at least $150. This amount goes to help with general band expenses associated with equipment, contest costs, instruments, and instruction. Would you please support the band by making a per hour or flat donation of any amount? Examples of per hour donations are below:
- 3 hours @ $5.00 per hour = $15.00
- 3 hours @ $10.00 per hour = $30.00
- 3 hours @ $15.00 per hour = $45.00
- 3 hours @ $20.00 per hour = $60.00
For donations of $75 or more, your name (or your business name) will be added to the back of the Band-A-Thon shirt that will be worn by approximately 375 wind, percussion, and color guard members all year long! We hope that you will support the band today with a pledge or donation.
