Committee Members for 2011-2012

It’s that time of year, when elected members become actual ones, shadows become real, and I edit a lot of e-mail addresses.

Many thanks to the outgoing executive committee members and committee chairpersons and best wishes to the incoming members and chairpersons. And of course, congratulations to the class of 2011!

Please check your information on the Contacts page to be sure that everything’s correct. If you were a shadow and are now the head of a committee with an @rmhsmusicboosters.com address, you should have received an e-mail message. If you didn’t, either you didn’t give me your e-mail address (please do) or you weren’t a shadow last year (so nothing has changed).

Final Meeting, Volunteers for May and August

Hi all RMHS music parents,

This will be my final meeting as the RMHS Music Boosters president. I am stepping down after seven years of service to the Boosters, making way for new board members to bring their enthusiasm and refreshing ideas to the committee and staff. I have enjoyed every minute of involvement with all of the parents (including the students). The experience has been tremendous and I can’t thank everyone enough for all of your great support.

Our final meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 3 at 7:00 PM in the Teachers Lounge in the back part of the cafeteria. Since this is the final meeting of the year I am asking everyone who is involved in any early event in the late part of summer or fundraising event at the beginning of the fall 2011-2012 school year to attend this meeting. This is our last opportunity to all get together and to make sure we are all set and ready to hit the ground running in the fall. If you need help with any of these events, want to help or have questions I encourage you to attend. Next year is a trip year and we have to help the kids raise as much money as possible to offset costs.

Yankee Candle Fundraiser Begins

Today, we’re kicking off a new fundraiser designed to help your student earn money toward their student accounts. Keep in mind that next year is a trip year!

Students will come home today with their Yankee Candle fundraising brochures. These feature candles, accessories, and more from Yankee Candle. For each item a student sells, 40% will be added to their student account. Completed order forms are due back to Mr. Buti and Mr. Stewart by April 4.

Delivery of the items will be the week before Mother’s Day. (We’ll notify you of the exact date later, but it will certainly be before Mother’s Day.) Think Mother’s Day gifts!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sara Zimmermann.

Thanks to everyone for making the 26th annual Jazz in the Meadows festival a success. Thank you to the schools, performers, volunteers, sponsors, attendees, judges, parents, teachers, staff, family members, friends, and anyone I’ve forgotten.

If you weren’t able to catch the Tim Seisser Quintet at noon, videos of their performance are on the Music Boosters YouTube channel (with their permission, of course).
