Save the Date: Jazz in the Meadows (Feb. 25)

The next Jazz in the Meadows will be on 25 February 2012. Save the date for a day of fun, volunteering, music, and more fun.

Jazz in the Meadows is the premier jazz festival in the Midwest, featuring 100 performances from schools from seven different states. We will need all students and parents to help!

When we get closer to the date (a lot closer), you’ll be able to sign up (on this Web site) for specific positions (and even general ones).

When you volunteer to help, you will:

  • meet new people!
  • make a difference to the RMHS music program!
  • be surrounded by talented musicians!

New Band Member Orientation

Rolling Meadows High School is holding an orientation for parents and students who are new to any of the RMHS bands for the 2011-2012 school year.

If you’ll be new to any bands, please attend the New Band Member Orientation Night on Monday, May 9, at 7:00 PM in the Band Room. (Enter the school from the back parking lot through door #17.)

This session is for all new band students and their parents. They’ll review the information packet in detail, discuss co-curricular code, explain policies and procedures, as well as introduce you to some of the student leaders, directors, and Music Boosters officers.

The short presentation will answer any questions you might have about the various bands (including jazz) that you have signed up for. Also, you will get an opportunity to meet other new band students and parents.

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.
