Band Fruit arrives on Friday

November 29, 2010

All of the items from our annual fruit fundraiser will be arriving this Friday, Dec 3rd. Please make arrangements with your student to get the items delivered to their customers as soon as possible to ensure freshness.

Last Wednesday, ComedySportz QC had their grand opening at the new Establishment Theater in downtown Rock Island. The RHS drumline was asked to give a surprise performance to help give the show an exciting start. The drumline played for a sold out ComedySportz audience. See the article below.

Bad Weather a Comin’

November 23, 2010

As winter draws closer and closer, the chances of band events getting canceled due to weather become greater and greater. If school is canceled or we end school early for weather, any band events will obviously be canceled that night. If however, there is a night where school has not been canceled and weather is questionable, check in on this site. I will do my utmost to try to keep you informed about any cancellations.

Over the course of the last two Saturdays, various members of the Rockridge Junior and Senior high have participated in the IMEA District II Band and Orchestra Festivals. Ali Knollenberg, Miyah Sellers, and Carly Walker played in the junior band, Mike Sederquist and Daisy Bower played in the senior band, and Matt Stine traveled to DeKalb to play in the senior orchestra. Way to go!!!

Meet the Rockets Night

November 15, 2010

The RHS pep band has been asked to play at “Meet the Rockets Night” this Thursday. Participation is not required. If students come to play at the event, they get one freebie to get out of a pep band night later on in the season just in case they need it. Attendance is strongly recommended. It can be very helpful to your grade if you wind up needing to use it.
