This Week

9/24/19: We need B&O tux volunteers
Many parent volunteers are needed to make Tux Distribution Night (9/24/19) go smoothly. Please see sign up genius link below and on the website. Thank you! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080b44a5a82fa0fd0-tuxedo1

9/27/19: MB rehearsal w/ guest clinician
All students wear Ravens Head T-Shirts from 3:15-5:15pm (Note: B&O Printable Calendar on the website is incorrect) Parents welcome!

9/27/19 - 9/28/19: Tag Days are this Friday and Saturday!!!
Tag Days 2019 are Friday, Sept. 27th and Saturday, Sept. 28th. Tag Days is our biggest fundraiser of the year!  Student pairs (in uniform) stand outside local businesses asking for donations for the ROHS Instrumental Music program. An adult chaperone is needed with each pair.  Students may sign up together and parents may split the shift if they'd like. (Students can NOT split a shift.) Once you have signed up, you have made a commitment to stand that shift. Without all of the shifts covered, we will not meet our fundraising goal.

All band, orchestra, jazz and marching band students are expected to work at least one shift.

Orchestra and Band students please wear your Concert uniform. For those also in MB or color guard please wear your MB/CG uniform. Students are encouraged to play at their post; guidelines for music/playing will be given in class.

Please see the two Tag Days signups below. Thank you for your support!

Note: Students with Friday shifts must pick up your donation cans in the MMR on Friday between 3-3:30 p.m .

Other Announcements

10/4 and 10/18 Game Day Volunteers are needed for our two next home games.

Reminder about Marching Band Uniforms - If your student needs their bibbers shortened, please do not cut the material!  They can be hemmed, or just safety pin them to the correct length.  We also have a MB seamstress if you wish to contact her for any alterations (see the website BANDS page). The raincoats are brand new this year!  If they need to be cleaned, they can be washed in cold water on delicate. They should be line-dried, never machine dried.

HELP! We need a Glow Show co-chair. The Glow Show event, held on 10/23/19, is a favorite among students and parents so we need it to run smoothly. No experience necessary to be a co-chair, as you will be working with a seasoned pro, Norma Fenech -- but she can't do it alone! Please contact rohsbob.info@gmail.com for more info or if you can help this year.

We are still looking for one or two Orchestra parents to chair the Barnes & Noble holiday fundraiser.  Please email rohsbob.info@gmail.com if interested or for more info. Otherwise, this event will be cancelled.
