Marching Band Family Picnic – Update

Tonight’s Marching Band Family Picnic will be in the RMHS Football Stadium from 5:30 to 7 PM and not the cafeteria as previously posted.

Following the picnic, there will be a (free) performance from your students as they show you what they’ve learned during this week of practice.

If you are attending, please bring a food item to share. Last names A-M brings salad and N-Z brings dessert. Please also visit volunteerspot.com to let us know that you are coming and how many in are in your party.

We also need volunteers to help with grilling, set-up, serving, and clean-up. If you are interested, please click the same link above and sign-up!

The students have worked very hard this week. You’ll be amazed at what they’ve accomplished!

Tuesday’s Jazz in the Meadows Meeting Cancelled

Due to the severe cold weather and all District 214 schools closed on Tuesday January 28th, the special Jazz in the Meadows meeting has been cancelled. At the next regularly scheduled Booster meeting, February 4th, we will focus on the final details of the festival.

In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns please contact Laura Pike, Chris Buti, Kevin Carroll or Mat Krawczyk.

October Booster Meeting

auction_hammer_gavelPlease join us tomorrow, October 1, for the monthly RMHS Music Boosters meeting. We meet near the back of the cafeteria in the Faculty Lounge at 7pm.

A few of the things we will cover this month are the last two marching competitions of the season, Junior High School band night and the Fall Music Concert. By joining us tomorrow you will hear first hand details about many of the other things going on with the music department this month.

At booster meetings we work closely with the directors in helping to plan and support such things as band competitions, all music department concerts, trips, camps and Jazz In the Meadows. Throughout the year there are many opportunities to help out a little or help out a lot. We need the assistance of all parents to make this happen.

The RMHS Music Boosters is a great way to become involved with your child’s music experience throughout High School while helping support the music program overall.

If you have any questions about boosters please send an email to president@rmhsmusicboosters.com or reach out to Mr. Buti or Mr. Carroll for additional information.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
