Spring Fundraisers

This spring, all music students have another opportunity to sell ButterBraid pastries or Great Lakes Scrip Gift Cards in order to raise money for their individual accounts. For your convenience, both fundraisers have the same order deadline and pick-up date. Extra order forms are available in the Band or Orchestra rooms. Please see below for more information.

For every ButterBraid pastry sold, you can earn $5.20 to benefit your student music account. All orders & money are due to your director by April 20th. Pick-up date is Monday,  April 30th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the North Cafeteria. We are not able to store the frozen products for you, so please be sure to have this pick up date on your calendar. If you have any questions, please contact Cindy Bieda at 847-736-5107 or dbieda5931@gmail.com.

The Great Lakes Scrip Gift Cards are great for Mother’s/Father’s Day and graduation. You may also use them as pre-paid cards for places where you regularly shop. You receive full face value, and your student account receives as much as 10% back from the vendor. Save now for future trips, uniforms, music lessons, and more. All orders & money are due to your director by April 20th. Gift Card pick-up date is Monday,  April 30th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the North Cafeteria. If you have any questions, contact Mary DeMaria at 847-612-9733 or mary@thedemarias.com.

Time to Volunteer for Jazz in the Meadows!

2018 Jazz in the Meadows
It’s Time to Volunteer!

Less than 4 weeks away now on Saturday, Feb. 24, the RMHS Music Boosters will host its most important fund-raiser of the year, the 33nd Annual Jazz in the Meadows, the largest high-school competitive jazz festival in the Midwest!

And of course we need LOTS & LOTS of your help to make this the great event that it is each year!  A new SignUpGenius spot is now up and ready for you to browse the more than 130 jobs/time slots that need to be filled for Jazz in the Meadows.  You will find it here:

2018 Jazz in the Meadows SignUpGenius

The 130+ volunteer slots are divided by Tabs at the top of the page into various areas of service throughout Jazz in the Meadows.  They include in no particular order:

Under each Tab, you will find descriptions that break down all of the positions where we will need volunteer support from parents, friends and alumni of our outstanding music program at RMHS.  Please browse through each  Tab and enter your name everywhere that you are able to serve.

It is hoped that an adult from each band, orchestra and color guard family will be able to volunteer for at least 2 hours for Jazz in the Meadows.  If you have any questions about a particular position, please contact Tom Toussaint, our Volunteer Coordinator, at tomtoussaint@hotmail.com.

We will be sending out frequent reminders from now until the 24th to help get these positions filled and update volunteers on any changes and with final instructions for our work that day.

Program Book Ads

In addition, just a reminder that the Jazz in the Meadows Program Book includes ads from local businesses and parents who want to support the Instrumental Music Program at RMHS as well as “Shout Outs” to students and the deadline for reservations is tomorrow, Monday, January 29.  You can learn more about doing this here:
