Holiday Concerts & Cookie Sales during Basketball Games – We need your help!

The holidays are here and the RMHS Music Boosters have several ways for you to help make our holiday concerts extra special and at basketball games to help raise funds for our many programs that support the orchestras and bands at RMHS.

The Holiday Band Concert is this Thursday, December 8, and Pep Band season begins the next night, Friday, December 9, with both the Purple and Gold bands playing for the Girls’ and Boys’ Varsity Basketball Games as the Mustangs take on Wheeling.

Next week follows with the Holiday Orchestra & Choir Concert on Tuesday, December 13, and then another set of basketball games vs. Prospect on Friday night, December 16.

Music Booster Directory Form

cards_bind_addressAll Band, Orchestra, and Color Guard families are listed in our Music Booster Directory which is published yearly. In order to streamline the process, we have created a form that can be accessed and submitted online. This is the most efficient and accurate way of having your information published in the directory. Your family has/will also receive a paper version that you could fill out and return, but we encourage you to use the electronic version which can be found here: RMHS Music Boosters Directory Form. Please note that your submission is for the directory ONLY. If you wish to subscribe to website updates (and we encourage you to do so), you’ll need to submit your email in the left sidebar under “Updates.”
