  • They say it takes a village…but in reality, it takes an army of volunteers to make your student’s band experience run smoothly.  The band boosters is the organization dedicated to making it happen.  They have many volunteer opportunities – go take a look!

  • Absolutely!   Even if you’re not into the football game, the kids really appreciate people cheering for them when they perform.  In fact, many RP Band and Guard parents sit in a group by the band and form our own cheering section.  At contests, look for other RP Band and Guard parents and sit with them, even if you don’t know them.  It makes for a bigger cheering section, and the kids love seeing a group of purple from the field.

    And don’t forget to cheer for the other bands, too.  We support all fine arts in FBISD and all other band programs.  Show your appreciation for the hard work of other students, just as you’d like other parents to appreciate the hard work of the RP Band and Guard.

  • They look pretty, but don’t worry – the band uniforms are made to stand up to washing machines, so long as you follow some simple steps.  We’ve put together a couple of guides for you on how to care for the uniform.
