The BRBB—Big Red Band Boosters, Inc.—is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization. Read more about us.


SignUps are now available: Volunteer now for the home show, games, and competitions

Two SignUps are now posted: one is for our very own home show, the 2015 Celebration of Bands, which will held at SAHS on Saturday, September 19th; the other is for all football games and competitions. Links to both SignUps are on the Volunteer page.

Band Store open on Thursday: Stop by before or after band camp

Do you still need gloves, wrist bands, garment bags, or a band t-shirt? The Band Store will be open on Thursday, August 27th at 12:15pm and again at 8:30pm.

Note: We hope to have t-shirts on Thursday, but are still waiting for the shipping confirmation.

For a price list and store location, visit the Band Store page.

Changes to our gift card fundraising program: All gift cards to be sold via the Scrip program; Buy our remaining in-stock cards at Preview Night

We are moving all of our gift card sales to the Scrip program. We do still have a few cards available outside of the Scrip program, including Kohl’s and Giant. We also have some remaining WaWa Shorti coupons at $4 each.

This Friday night, 8/28, at the Preview we will have all of our remaining cards available for purchase. Buy a card (or two) and earn student credit. Make checks payable to BRBB.

For more information, contact Georgia Meyers.

Parents and Families: Tailgate and Preview Night (with free ice cream!) on Friday, 8/28

On August 28th, Preview Night, BRBB will have free ice cream for all band families in the parking lot just outside the stadium. All families and alumni are invited to come at 6 pm and mingle with some new and old people. Feel free to bring your dinner. Then at 7pm, move to the stadium for a preview of this year’s show, Star Crossed, to the music of The Planets by Gustav Holst. The preview will last approximately 30 minutes.

Note: The band students will not join us for the ice cream. They will have dessert with their free meal and be busy getting ready for their performance!

Uniforms and Shoes

Uniform alterations: Please have pants and sleeves hemmed by Picture Day.

Visit the Downloads page for the Uniform Care Guide and Hemming Instructions.

Shoes: Anyone who has not ordered shoes yet: send an e-mail to Mr. Straka at sstraka@soudertonsd.org with your name, shoe size, and indicate male/female and marching band/color guard. Bring payment to the Red Box (marching band: $36; color guard: $29). Make checks out to BRBB or submit a Student Credit/Scrip request form.

2015 Season Welcome Package!

Using Student Credit or Scrip

You can use Student Credit or funds in your Scrip account to pay for certain expenses.

Student Credit: Students accumulate student credit through specific fundraising opportunities held during the year. When students participate in a designated fundraiser, they are allocated a certain portion of the profit from the fundraiser. These funds are simply an allocation of internal BRBB funds and will not be paid out to students or families under any circumstances. The allocation can only be used to pay for trips, the BRBB participation fee, and director-mandated uniform components.

Scrip: A Scrip account is similar to Student Credit, but: it is funded via rebates you receive from making Scrip purchases, it is your money, and it is not limited as to its use.

Student Credit and Scrip allocations are maintained by the BRBB Treasurer and posted monthly on the filing cabinet outside of the band director’s office, above the Red Box.

To use student credit or Scrip funds, submit the appropriate Request form:

  • Paper copies are in a plastic sleeve on the side of the filing cabinet by the Red Box in the Band room.
  • PDF forms are available on the Downloads page.
Are you a chaperone for an overnight field trip?

If so, you must have a new PPD (tuberculosis) skin test.

Program volunteers: You must have the results of a PPD test on file with the school district.

For information, contact Bonnie Miller at bomiller@souderstonsd.org.
Read more about the SASD volunteer requirements, including the forms you need to complete and the clearances you need to obtain, on the District’s Volunteers page as well as on the BRBB’s Volunteer page.
