10: B&O Boosters meeting, 7 p.m., at ROHS Multi Media Room (MMR). All parents and students welcome. Note this meeting has been changed back to its original date. Here's a link to the AGENDA .

11: MB Uniform Distribution after rehearsal 5-8 p.m . in the MMR
  • What time should I get there?: CG-All CG should come directly from rehearsal so you can get out quick, eat, and go back for your evening CG practice; Seniors-5:30pm, Juniors-6:00pm, Sophomores-6:30pm, Freshmen-7:00pm.  
  • What do I do? Go to the library. From there, you will enter the MMR via the library stairs (currently blocked, but will be open that night). In the first room, you hand over your signed MB or GB uniform contracts and receive your jacket and pants. Then you will proceed to the next area for hats, gauntlets and raincoats. Finally, you will check out by the main MMR door (where you normally come in for class) and exit for the night. Think of it as a one-way assembly line!
  • What should I bring: Bring your signed MB Uniform Contract or CG uniform contract found under BANDS / Student Files (MB).
  • What about parents? We need parent volunteers, so please SIGN UP to help distribute uniforms if you can lend a hand. Otherwise, let your student go through the assembly line on his/her own.

Note: Tuxedo distribution is CANCELLED for 9/12/19 , but will be rescheduled soon.  Thanks for your patience. 

14: CMU Marching Band Day (optional but awesome!) Central Michigan University 6:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Music of “Elton John” - Limited charter bus seating. Reserve your seat now! MB parents are also welcome to ride on the bus for a $30 fee.  To reserve your seat: Put $30/person (students are first priority) in a sealed envelope with all your pertinent info and place it in the band dropbox. A permission slip will be handed out as the date approaches. MB students should wear their bibbers and Raven Head Ts on the bus, but don't forget to bring the rest of your uniform and raincoat!  We will change into full MB uniform once we arrive at CMU.

15:  Marching Band Golf Outing  - RO Golf Course with 2 pm. check-in and 3 pm start (Adults only – Service Hours available for student volunteers).  Please SIGN-UP  to help at the event. It's a lot of fun!
