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.

Music Boosters Meeting / Open Positions

We will meet on Tuesday, October 5th at 7:00PM in the Teachers Lounge (in the back of the cafeteria, follow the signs). In addition to our normal agenda We’re looking for some volunteer help. Some positions are simple and require minimal contribution while others may need a little more attention but we can’t function as an organization with so many vacancies.

The positions listed on the Volunteer page are currently open or need to be filled next year. Look them over and attend our meeting tomorrow night. Ideally, it would be great if you could shadow the current person responsible this year to understand the position and then take it over next year.


Thank You Volunteers

Just a quick note of “Thanks” to all of the wonderful parent volunteers who helped at the Marching competitions at Wheeling High School and at St. Rita’s. What a great group of parents! It really makes the day operate so smoothly when you have help throughout the day. Whether you chaperoned on a bus or loaded and unloaded equipment for the band, we certainly appreciate your time and effort. Our next and final competition is on Sunday October 17th at Sandwich High School in Sandwich, Illinois. An e-mail will come out soon asking for help again.

We’re on to St. Rita’s in Chicago on Sunday, October 3rd this coming weekend for our second competition where the Marching Mustangs are looking to capture their second title of the season.
