Dear Ross Families

The fudge making day is set for Saturday, February 12th beginning at 8:00am in the high school's home economics room. Many volunteers are needed to help make the fudge. You can help as much or as little as your schedule allows. Please contact Rick Giuliano or Diann Bielefeld, there number is available in your Band Members Directory, if you can help, so they can let you know what to bring and where to enter the high school that morning. Fudge orders will be delivered on Feb. 14th and all money will be due Feb. 28th.


The Band Savings Cards are now available for $5.00 each with discounts at many local businesses. These discounts will be good for all of 2011. You can use this card as much as you like. Look for these cards at some of the RHS home basketball games. You can also purchase cards from Mr. Roemer at the high school or from Ms. McDonough at the middle school. They will also be available in the offices of Elda and Morgan School. If you have any questions about the cards or if you would like to sell cards, please contact Sharon Henggeler, her number is in your Band Members Directory.

Leadership Postions & Booster Nominating Committee:

The Band Boosters will be looking for new leadership for the next school year. Two or three leadership positions will need to be filled; Treasurer, President, and possibly Vice-President. More information about what positions will need to be filled will be decided at the February Band Boosters' meeting. If you are interested in running for one of these offices or if you would like to be a part of the nominating committee, please come to the next booster meeting on February 1st. A nominating committee will be formed at this meeting. Refer to the "Booster Officer Roles"  to view the job descriptions of these booster officer positions. Also, keep in mind that several parents who are currently committee chairs are senior parents and they won't be here next school year. Please consider becoming a chairperson or co-chairperson of a committee, or a fundraiser. More information about chairperson vacancies will be coming in the future.
