Thank you to the 9 students who participated in the TMEA Area C auditions today. You all have represented our school and district in great fashion!

Pep Rally 01/19/18

The last pep rally of the year is this Friday! The attire for the event is your Purple Dri-fit shirt and jeans. Anyone ineligible due to failing grades will be unable to perform with the band. Please have your flip folder, lyre and marching instrument. Call time will be 9:00 AM in the RHS band hall.

This pep rally is very important! 8th graders from all over the district will be invited to come see our campus and learn about the magnet programs. It is imperative that WE bring our A game with our focus, spirit and musicianship. You could be the reason these 8th graders 1) come to RHS for a magnet program and 2) stay in band. In addition, our guard will be performing so make sure to show them your support!
