Charms website hosts information and important links for band parents and guardians.
Come have some fun and help the kids either during an on-site activity at the school or get an up close experience at a competition. We can use your help! Fair Share is the way the band budget is fairly distributed among all band students, so that all of the bands financial obligations can be met. Marching Band expenses are varied and include:
Concert bands also have expenses, including:
other expenses not paid for by the school district. Students are encouraged to participate in the many fundraisers provided throughout the year to help meet the Fair Share obligation. Participating in band fundraisers can allow you to fundraise 100 percent of your band fees, if you choose. Stay connected with RavenwoodBand.com to find out about the many opportunities to participate! If you have any questions about Fair Share, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and questions about Fundraising should be directed to email@example.com.
Every parent and band member guardian can be a booster! A supportive band booster organization is an essential element of a successful band program. It provides the chance for parents of each family to participate at some level in supporting the band community and the experience to be a part of the program. We are an essential support group for the band program as a whole.
There are monthly general meetings and board meetings as required by the By-Laws.
Stay connected with RavenwoodBand.com to find out the latest meeting dates and times. You can find upcoming meetings in the “Coming Up this Week” section of the main page, or by looking at the calendar on the right side of this page. You can also find out future meeting dates through the Charms calendar, and in emails from the Booster Board. As a parent you are welcome, and encouraged to attend and participate.
The Band Boosters Association helps the band program build strong relationships through unity, commitment and discipline resulting in strong leadership, excellence and friendship throughout the student’s lifetime. The Band Booster Board exists to provide the overall logistical and financial support for the entire band program. The board is everyday parents and guardians volunteering their time, and elected to help make the band program at Ravenwood High School the best it can be.
