The Flat Rock Band Association (FRBA), originally known as the Flat Rock Band Boosters, was formed more than forty years ago as the parent support group for the Flat Rock Bands. Parents of current Bandos are automatically members, but membership is open to all alumni and friends who want to advance the band program. There are no dues or membership fees.
The FRBA meets five times per year. See meeting schedule above.
The mission of the Flat Rock Band Association is to provide financial and physical support to the Director, students and families of the Flat Rock Band Program. Our purpose is to promote and enhance the quality of the total band experience for all. To achieve these goals, the FRBA pledges to (1) support the band program with supplemental financial aid and with the donation of volunteer time and talents; (2) encourage excellence in musicianship; (3) encourage and nurture the social growth and friendships of both students and parents; and (4) work to foster responsibility, pride, school spirit and good sportsmanship.
To do this, the FRBA is heavily involved with band performance, social and fundraising activities, and generally helping any way we can. The FRBA uses the money we raise to help meet the high cost of instruments, supplies, and expenses of improving and exhibiting our Flat Rock Band program. Every Flat Rock Band student and Band family is expected to participate actively in several fund-raising events each year to continue our current level of support for the Flat Rock Bands.
The Flat Rock Band Association is only as strong as its membership. We ask for the active commitment of everyone involved; students, parents, and staff. If everyone gives a little, your Bando gains a lot. This is your chance to get involved in your child’s life and make a big difference to the students of the Flat Rock Bands. We are always looking for people to assist in various activities throughout the school year. Don’t wait. Volunteer to help with one or more of the committees; attend FRBA meetings; participate in all of our Flat Rock Band activities and events to support our students.
