2019 Golden Eagle Band Registration Packet Released!

Hello GEB,

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! The 2019 Golden Eagle Band Registration Packet was emailed today. It includes IMPORTANT information regarding: band registration times (July 27th), fees, release forms (including physical requirement), pre-game meal options, signs, football tickets, media guide ads, March-a-thon, summer band schedule (UPDATED), school registration (August 5th), SAT/ACT/PSAT test dates, 2019-2020 Calendar of Events (UPDATED) and RABC board.

A couple of things to mention:

The Band Hall will be opened on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the summer from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM for private lessons and/or practice time. STUDENTS – remember that when you return for Full Band Camp on July 29th, ALL of your show music is to be memorized. To aid you with your practice, the mp3 audio was also emailed.

The March-a-ton is our biggest fundraiser of the year! Our goal is to raise a minimum of $35,000. Here is the link to sign up for March-a-thon sponsors. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b044faaaf2c7-richardson. Please see March-a-thon Packet for more information – http://richardsonband.org/fundraising/march-a-thon/ Furthermore, congratulations to Ethan Reiff-Martin for closing our first sponsorship of $750! Let’s build on that success and keep the momentum going to make the March-A-Thon the absolute best! 

9th Grade Camp is from July 25th – 26th. Remember that this camp is required for 9th grade winds and color guard as well as leadership (including attendance/logistics crew) – NO PERCUSSION. Please wear athletic clothing, tennis shoes, sunglasses, apply sunscreen and bring your marching instrument.

Band Registration is on Saturday, July 27th for both parents and students. Please see schedule for assigned times. Plan for event to last up to 2 hours and understand that our band parent volunteers work extremely hard to make it run smoothly for you.

Full Band Camp starts on July 29th and it is required for ALL students in the program (9th-12th). Please see schedule in packet.

School Registration for all students in the program will be on Monday, August 5th from 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM. Please arrive no later than 3:00 PM.

Do not be discouraged by band fees; we have the lowest band fees in the entire region (out of 51 high schools) and there are payment plan options if needed on the day of band registration. Our treasurer is Sharon Nagele. Her NEW EMAIL, should you have any financial questions, is richardsonbandtreasurer@gmail.com

During the school year there are MANY volunteer opportunities and parents, we NEED your help. 

ALWAYS check the OFFICIAL band calendar at www.richardsonband.org for the most up-to-date calendar.

The All-State Band Music will be released at noon on Monday, July 22nd at 12:00 PM. Please click the links below for audition materials – books/etudes.

I am looking forward to an amazing year once again; please let me know if I can answer any immediate questions, however, I can almost guarantee your questions that most will be answered by a director or parent volunteer at band registration on July 27th.

Thank you,

Mr. Marquez
