We invite families to bring chips, fruit, salads and desserts – Please click on the SignUpGenius link below to let us know how many from your family will attend and what you will bring, based on the first letter of your last name.

The evening concludes with the Marching Mustangs performing their pre-game show and the parts of the new halftime show, Beyond the Forest’s Edge, that they have been working on all week at camp. This is a GREAT evening out and all music students and their families are welcome to attend.

The Fall Band Concert will be held at 3 p.m., this Sunday, October 23, in the main gymnasium at RMHS. As part of this event that features the jazz bands, all choral groups and orchestra and string ensembles, we also offer cheesecake samples for the upcoming fund-raiser and introduce other fund-raisers as well. Specifically, Manna Gift Cards will be on display and the Choral Boosters are offering a Greeting Card box offer that will benefit either Choral or Music boosters – you will be able to indicate for which group the money for your purchase should be allocated. A flyer on this fund-raiser is attached HERE.
Band-O-Rama will be held at 7:30 p.m., next Wednesday, October 26, also in the main gymnasium at RMHS. This concert features all music and routines performed during the 2016 Marching Mustangs Season. It is recorded and commemorative CDs are burned and ordered/sold that night, too. Cheesecake samples for fund-raising are offered again here, too – this group sure likes cheesecake!
There are LOTS of opportunities to volunteer here, so please consider helping out where you can, especially if you do not have a student performing at one of the concerts so that parents of student-performers can come and enjoy the concert.

Please note that your submission is for the directory ONLY.
