Frisco High School Needs Student Volunteers


The Frisco HS Band is looking for 7th and 8th grade Band student volunteers to be part of the Frisco Band Drum Major Auditions at Frisco High School.  The Auditions will take place after school on Thursday, March 28th, between 4:45 and 8:30 pm; though our middle school volunteers will only need to be present for 1-hour windows (unless they’d like to sign up for more!)  

 

7th and 8th grade students would serve in pairs as ‘test subjects’ for our drum major candidates to teach some basic marching concepts.  We will be focused solely on the performance of our high school candidates, and NOT on the performance of the middle school volunteers J

Hello Reedy Band Parents,


The future of the Reedy Band program is shaped in part by the people who are chosen to serve in leadership roles as Officers of the RHSBBC (Reedy High School Band Booster Club).  These officers are a vital part of the success of many facets of the band program.  Officers are asked to commit two years to their position and the Booster Club’s future is determined by the leadership qualities and people skills of the individuals selected.

An RHSBBC officer should exhibit enthusiasm for the Reedy Band, be willing to attend Booster Club meetings and have a sense of justice and fairness. Newly elected Board members will begin working on the next year immediately upon being voted in with existing Board members continuing to work on the current year and assist with the transition of leadership.
