Weekly Announcements

Welcome back to a new, and one of a kind, school year! Hope you all had a memorable summer. Just a reminder that ROHSBOB emails the weekly band and orchestra announcements so you can prepare for the upcoming week. These announcements are the best way to stay up to date--especially this year--with all the sudden changes and updates due to Covid-19. Our weekly announcements will also be posted on rohsbob.org (INFORMATION page) as well as our Facebook group.

Volunteers Needed: B&O Event Chairs and Co-chairs
We have several open Board and committee positions for the 2020-2021 school year.
