Central School District has postponed all school activities and trips, and that is including our spring concert scheduled for March 18. There are a few possible dates after spring break that we can reschedule, if the situation with COVID-19 improves. I am disappointed the students cannot show off their skills just yet, but I am hopeful we will be able to reschedule at a later date.
All after school activities have also been suspended before spring break, so students will not be spending time in the band room either. Including Pep Band and open practice.
We will spend all the class time when need making sure students can catch up with their work, and continue to enhance their skills.
We will spend time sanitizing and cleaning the instruments.
All instruments to go home for spring break.
I am praying for health, happiness, and peace in this time of uncertainty.
If you would like to make water or snack donations, feel free to do that at any time. All items can be dropped off during school hours to the front office. They will add your name, process through the nurse, and deliver it to me. We can store and use items when needed. Thank you!
The 8th grade Wind Ensemble is partnering with the Azusa Pacific University Wind Ensemble for a new experience. This will include a partial clinic (instruction) and rehearsal with the college students.
Students will report straight to 6th period (normal band time) to load up the bus with their instruments and belongings.
We will leave RMMS as soon as we can load up, no later than 2 pm.
We will leave rehearsal at APU about 5 pm, load the bus, and travel back to RMMS. Hopefully arriving back no later than 6 pm. Students will be able to call home when we are close to school, for pick up.
Students should wear their band shirts and bring a snack for the bus ride. (Please no peanuts).
Students will be receiving the permission slip/release form.

This is a very serious event and the results of the performance earn a rating: Superior (A), Excellent (B), Good (C), Fair (D), and Poor (F). Each student matters to the overall score, and individual preparation is important.
