5/6 Eagle Band

The RHMS 5/6 Eagle Band is a group dedicated to the solid beginning of a musical education. During the first two weeks of class, students will learn how band class functions and will be able to sample instruments in order to select the right one for them. This ensemble will perform three concerts of exciting and challenging music and celebrate the end of the year with a movie party!

The Symphonic Band will be performing in the RHMS Fall Concert next Wednesday, 10/25, at 7:00 PM in the gym.  Although your child will not be performing, please consider attending to show your support for the music program!  From the teachers and performers in costume to the wickedly spooky music, the event will be full of fun and excitement!  Also, since there is only one ensemble, the concert will be short and sweet.  Speaking of sweet, we will also hold one of our famous bake sales with plenty of Halloween and Autumn themed treats!  Finally, your kids will relish the chance to see the great RHMS Symphonic Band in action, giving them a glimpse of what lies ahead for them. We really hope to see you there!

I'd like to throw a party for the members of this year's Beginning Band as a big thank you for a year's worth of hard work!  The party will begin after school on Thursday, 6/8, with a pizza feast.  The party continues at 3:30 with a screening of the movie August Rush (2007, rated PG, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0426931/?ref_=nv_...).  The students who stay for the entire movie will be ready for pick-up at 5:30.  Students are welcome to come to as much or as little of the party as they would like!  

Volunteer opportunity: Pizza ordering, purchase, and delivery

I need one parent to volunteer to place the order for the pizza, make the purchase, and deliver it to the school cafeteria at 2:45 on the day of the party.  The Music Boosters will reimburse the money for the pizza.  Please email me if you'd like to help out!

Hello Band Community,

(This is a note from your Music Booster President.)

Notes and Floats is on June 7 and so we need to get all contributions by Friday 6/2.  Mr. R has taken our kids to such extraordinary heights in their music development with exceptional success in the Great America competition.  This is the time to show how much we appreciate him.  Every year, I am just unbelievably amazed by him.

Steve needs time to go to the bank to deposit all checks and get the cashier's check.

Please put this gift in a sealed envelope with "Steven Waste" written on the outside.  You can deposit this in the music booster box in the classroom or our safe in the school office with Sue Odom.  Cash is preferred over check as we have a parent volunteer (Steven Waste) who is overseeing this and will getting this cashier check from these funds.  If you write a check, please make it payable to Steven Waste.

We usually get the question of what is the normal amount and on average it is $20-50 per family.

Unfortunately, this was the only way to communicate to all the bands.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to email me at oktanm@gmail.com or Steve at wastrel@me.com.   

Thank you so much!
