Greetings from the Rouse High School Band Boosters Club!
The Rouse High School Band is one of the prominent music education programs in the state of Texas. In 2017 the Rouse Band advanced for the 1st time to the 2017 UIL State Marching Band Championship Finals, placing 9th overall out of 87, 5A bands. In 2018 Rouse continued in their pursuit of excellence winning multiple division titles and caption awards, culminating with a Division Championship win at the Bands of America Super Regional in San Antonio Texas. In 2019 the Rouse Band placed 3rd in the Texas Marching Classic and also achieved 5th place overall at the 2019 UIL 5A State Marching Championship Contest. We also sent six students to the 2020 Texas Music Education Association (TMEA) Conference. These students went through a rigorous three month audition process culminating in becoming members of the All State Concert Band and received the highest personal ranking in the state of Texas.
The Rouse Band program continues to excel in musical performance long after the marching season ends. For four consecutive years, Rouse has earned all Division One ratings at the UIL Concert and Sight Reading Evaluation. In 2019 the Rouse Honor Band advanced to the TMEA Honor Band Area Competition.
While the awards are nice, the Rouse Band recognizes true success by our unwavering dedication to music education and our program. We sincerely believe in our mantra, "Excellence from Within." It is this pursuit of excellence that fuels everything the students are involved in from academics to visual and musical performance.
Cuts in music education and the rising costs associated with operating a successful program are stark realities. It is more critical now than ever that we continue to be successful in our fundraising efforts so that the Rouse Band program is accessible to all who desire the educational learning opportunities which only band can provide.
Leander ISD and Rouse Band are charged with preparing our students to become college, career, and life ready. Through music, our goals are the same. Our students strive to achieve greatness in every aspect of the program. We cordially invite you to join us in our cause by becoming a corporate sponsor of the Rouse High School Band today!
2020 Update: The Rouse Band is forging forward through the 2020 pandemic. Our directors are planning for a non-competitive marching season to ensure our students stay as healthy as possible. We are replacing our competitive show with a virtual show experience alongside a football game field show. All band students will be participating in this virtual show whether they are learning on campus or virtually from home. We provide an inclusive environment for all of our band students.
Your support will be greatly appreciated and remembered by our students, parents, and community supporters. In addition, our 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization status may allow donations made to the Rouse Band Booster Club to be tax deductible. Please check with a tax advisor.
We look forward to hearing from you and greatly welcome your sponsorship support!
