Special Family Pack – If a family has multiple students in 5-12th grade music, together they may sell 30 items or more and will be eligible for the laser tag party! Please note on the order sheet listing who the siblings are so I don’t miss someone.
Over the years, some families have chosen to donate cash in place of participating in the sales process. This is welcomed by the Music Boosters. If the donation is $125 or more, your children will be eligible for the parties. Please send the check by Dec 3rd and list all eligible students.

Dear Band Parents & Students,
After consulting with Mr. Tresnak, we feel it is in the best interest of the students to cancel our performance in the Chicago Columbus Day Parade. The forecast has been consistently predicting heavy thunderstorms during the parade. By making the call now, we are allowing students and families to make alternate plans for the three day weekend. This is the first time I have ever called a parade prior to the day of the event.
The RBHS Marching Band will perform at the RBHS Variety Show on Friday, October 24 and will again lead the Sowers Elementary Students on Red Ribbon Week “Say No to Drugs” parade on Monday, October 27.
