logopirate_484The Atlee Band Booster Program is essential to the Band program. Not only do they assist the Director at every turn to make his job easier, they truly care about each and every student and work tirelessly throughout the year to better the Band Program in all areas.

Dear Atlee Band Family,

On behalf of the Atlee High School Band Booster Board, welcome to the Atlee Raider Band Program. As President of the Board for the 2016-2017 season, I look forward to working with each of you. As you may know, many resources are needed to maintain a successful and competitive band program and Atlee has been fortunate to have such a dedicated group of volunteers. There is no greater gift than your time! I encourage each of you to participate in one or more of our many volunteer and/or fund-raising opportunities!!

Parents, I hope all of you will consider joining the Band Boosters. Your membership provides the program with needed financial support and helps to off-set operational expenses such as sheet music, instruments, transportation, uniforms and maintaining our scholarship fund. Our goal is 100% Band Booster Membership! If you have further questions, please feel free to contact any member of our Board. We are more than happy to assist you.

I look forward to meeting all new band families and to continue working with current members. The Atlee Band Program supports the Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band and Wind Ensemble as well as smaller ensembles put together by students. This is my third year as part of the Atlee Band Family and I am very proud to help support such an amazing group of talented students under the Direction of Mr. Paul Rozecki.

I encourage you to attend the new parent meeting that will be held later this summer. We will answer any questions you may have and provide you with information about how to become involved. Your time and talents are much anticipated and greatly appreciated!

In the words of Billy Joel, “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
