The Great America Music Festival is this Saturday, 4/21!  I have attached the information packet that you already received for your consideration if you did not keep yours. Read on for a few details.

The students need to arrive at RHMS at 10:00 AM in order to load the bus and leave on time. The Concert Band's performance will take place at Milpitas High (you are welcome to watch!) and will last from 11:20 AM to 12:00 PM.  This performance will be followed by a trip to Great America, which will last until 8:00 PM (we'll arrive back at RHMS at 8:30 PM).  Please don't forget to provide food money for your child's lunch and dinner! The required uniform for this trip is simply the band polo shirt. Students may follow the dress code for the rest of the outfit.  Choose comfortable clothing for the amusement park!

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Please note we have 1 open position still to fill for this year.  We need someone to help with Band events.  There are about 2 events that we need to a coordinator to transport all the kids' instruments to and from the competition event.  
Open positions for next year that we still need volunteers:
President
