The Ann Richards Band has a booster club; the Stars Band Boosters. Every parent or guardian who has a student in the Ann Richards Band and Color Guard program is automatically a member of the booster organization. Family, alumni, and friends are also encouraged to join. The Booster organization is instrumental in providing assistance to the Directors and students with many different functions and activities that occur throughout the year.  Our Boosters are led by our Executive Board. Elections for these volunteer positions are held at the last General Membership meeting of the school year.


Volunteer Opportunities

Parents can make an enormous difference in their child’s education if they are actively involved with them at school. There are numerous opportunities to provide help and assistance throughout the year. Some of the many ways the booster’s help are: help with water breaks for summer band camp, chaperone buses, transport instruments, drive trucks, help with the pit crew, and attend events. Don’t wait to be asked, choose an area or an activity and just show up and get involved! Working with the band and all the wonderful students is a true blessing and a great way to make new friends who share a common passion and goal! Become an integral part of the Ann Richards Band organization and help to make a difference, not only in the program, but also in the lives of the students involved.


Fundraiser Opportunities

The Stars Band Booster Association assists the band financially throughout the year. They raise money for items the band may need throughout the year and to help subsidize the band fair share and the cost of band trips. Please consider donating your time to help keep this organization going!
