To get all of the information about the upcoming Music Department trip to Orlando download the Orlando Tour Book and attend the upcoming trip meeting to take place on Monday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Theater. This parent & student meeting should be considered mandatory for all going on the trip. Please make every effort to be there as many important items will be discussed. In the meantime, please take some time to look over the Orlando Tour Book.
Please join us on Tuesday March 4th for the monthly RMHS Music Booster meeting. We meet near the back of the cafeteria in the Faculty Lounge at 7pm.
At this month’s meeting we will be nominating new officers for the next school year with elections taking place in April. We will also discuss Jazz in the Meadows and the upcoming Disney trip.
The RMHS Music Boosters is a great way to become involved with your child’s music experience throughout High School while helping support the music program. We work closely with the directors in helping to plan and support such things as band competitions, concerts, trips, camps and Jazz in the Meadows.
If you have any questions about boosters please send an email to president@rmhsmusicboosters or reach out to Mr. Buti or Mr. Carroll for additional information.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
