To prepare for the new school year, the students must be fitted for uniforms and tuxes or dresses. Since there are over 120 members of the marching band and orchestra, we need some parent volunteers to help out during band camp (Monday, August 4 through Wednesday, August 6) and orchestra camp (Monday, August 11 through Thursday, August 14)
Tasks include helping students try on uniforms and dress clothes to ensure they’re not too tight and they’re the correct length. With so many students, we need a few volunteers every day for each type of fitting. We could also really use your help if you can do minor sewing, such as hemming and sewing snaps back onto uniforms and maybe some tacking. (You can even take the work home, if you prefer.)
Please go to the Volunteer page, scroll down to the Uniform Fittings activity and click “Sign up” or click one of these links: Band Fittings or Orchestra Fittings. This will take you to a list of tasks. Please sign up for as many days as you can. The listed times are when fittings will be done, but you can come and help whenever it’s convenient for you within those hours.
Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator if you have any questions.

Our second post of the July 4th trilogy, The Band Strikes Back, features a second call for volunteers. Thank you to all who have graciously donated your time and effort on one of the band’s busiest days of the year, but we still need some help. We are in need of some people to purchase water, help with setup, and to water-walk in either/both parade routes with the band. Though it is a busy day, we have a great time and hope that you will consider supporting the students by being a part of it. As always, you can volunteer by clicking the SIGN UP link on the Volunteers page or going directly to the Volunteerspot.com link: July 4th Volunteers.
There’s no better way to break up the work-week than to have a parade—except maybe TWO parades! The Arlington Heights parade is followed almost immediately by the Rolling Meadows parade, and the RMHS Marching Mustangs perform in both of them on Friday, July 4th. This is the first time some of the students have performed in public, so come out and give them your support! (Details about the parades will be posted soon).
Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help. Your efforts are appreciated by everyone: students, parents, and staff. If you want to double-check your responsibilities or sign up for one of the remaining positions, visit the Volunteer page and click the sign-up button for the parades or click this link: July 4th Volunteers. Since it will probably be hot, the students could really use many people to walk the parade routes and give them water.
We are in need of three people to assist uniform coordinators Meg Sioui and Amy Carroll inventory all of the RMHS Music Uniforms on Monday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. It’s a pretty big undertaking and many hands make light work. If you’re available, please consider signing up on the Volunteer . . .
