The Rising Starr Middle School Choral Boosters is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, organized to support the RSMS Choral Department. The Booster Club has two purposes:
- To foster team spirit and communication among its members, the choral faculty, and students in the choral program; and,
- To support the choral program’s yearly educational goals by
volunteering physical, material, fundraising and moral support beyond that
provided through public appropriations.
The annual budget is developed, approved and managed by the RSMS Choral Booster Board, and provides educational opportunities such as performances, competitions, new music, instrumentalists, classroom resources, new technologies, instruments, membership in state and national music associations and much more. In addition, the Booster Club pays for our wonderful accompanist Mrs. Shockley to assist with class instruction every Wednesday, and for Mr. Confer to lead guitar and music recording sessions on Rock Friday.
Parents have the opportunity to join the RSMS Choral Boosters through an annual $75 donation, or by selling poinsettias in the annual choral department poinsettia fundraiser. With current budget cuts, the RSMS Choral Department relies on donations and fundraisers to fund its annual budget, and the budget is available for review at the choral meeting prior to the annual RSMS Open House. Student invoices and payments can be viewed by logging into the Choral Boosters payment system via Charms Office.
