Junior High Band Night

Once a year, music students from the local junior-high schools come to RMHS to learn more about the RMHS music program at Junior High Band Night. This year, it’s on Friday, October 25. The students have dinner and then play the pre-football-game show with the Marching Mustangs. This is a great opportunity to encourage students to continue with music in high school. We need some volunteers to help greet them, to serve dinner, and to clean up afterwards. Please go to the bottom of the Volunteer page and sign up to help.

Volunteers will meet at the orchestra-room door off the main hallway. We’ll welcome the students to RMHS—this may be their first time at the school, and they may have some questions about the music program. Be sure to let them know all the great things going on. We’ll also enjoy delicious pizza with the students and socializing with other music parents.

All Marching Mustangs need to be at the East Practice Field with their instruments and music by 4:10 p.m. Feel free to come earlier to help with registration. You will be fed a pizza dinner. Athletes are asked to get here as soon as their practices are over (hopefully no later than 5:00 please). Please understand that this event is a big recruitment tool for our program. Your cooperation and example will help in the continued growth of the program! Thank you.
