Welcome RMS Band Members!

 I hope all of you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a musical school year.

                  for IMPORTANT INFO

A.) Students do not need their instrument for the first two days of school.  

 B.) Parents of our Beginning Band students are encouraged to attend a meeting on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 6:30 pm in the band room.  We will discuss the instruments selection process and important information dealing with our program.

C.) Have a pencil and an agenda for the first day of school. Students are encouraged to purchase a school agenda for $5.00. Students are to mark all morning rehearsal dates that apply for marching and jazz bands. In addition, they are encouraged to mark their calendars for all concert and parade dates.

D.) Symphonic, Concert and Honor Band Students will need to purchase a folder containing clear sheet inserts (or transparent inserts) to keep their music in during the school year. This is especially important for those students performing in jazz band and marching band.

E.) We will rent out lockers to members of the Symphonic, Concert and Honor Bands on Wednesday, (8/20) during the student's class time. Lockers are rented for $5.00 for the school year. Beginning band students will rent out lockers (after Labor Day vacation) once they decide what instrument they are playing.
