Fundraising through Amazon Smile

We’re always looking for new ways to fundraise in support of our band program and students. We don’t sell chocolates, or wrapping paper, or discount cards, or anything else. I know how annoying and time-consuming those product sales can be. Here’s an easy way for all of us to help raise funds for Rio Band, without doing anything extra!

When shopping on Amazon, please use this link:
A percentage of all sales will automatically be sent to RABB.
I have already bookmarked it, and will start shopping only through that link. It couldn’t be easier. One or two clicks and it’s set up. Don’t forget to bookmark it!

Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks to Erin Treadwell for setting up the account with Amazon.

Japan Trip Info

Hello HCB and Smamble Members and Families,

Once we know who will be going on the Japan trip, I’ll have a better email list, so please bear with me for a little while if you are not planning to go on the trip. Also, some of you may receive this twice. I’ll have that fixed soon too. 

Thank you to those of you who attended last night’s informational meeting. It’s going to be a fantastic trip, chock full of musical and cultural opportunities. I have attached the following documents (all of which were available last night) to this post:

  1. The proposed itinerary, with costing listed on the last page.
  2. Our FAQ’s
  3. The deposit form
  4. Chaperone application

A few things to consider:

  • The initial $500 deposit is due no later than Friday, 9/4. You may send it in at any time, and we will not cash any checks until after 9/4. The sooner, the better for our planning purposes. All checks should be made payable to RABB.
  • Limited scholarships are available, based solely on financial need. Any scholarship applicant must be in good disciplinary standing, and discipline or trust issues may result in the revoking of any scholarships awarded. Scholarships will not be considered for any student whose parent applies to chaperone the trip. All scholarship recipients must make every effort to participate in all fundraising efforts for Playathon. Scholarship applications are available from Mr. Murray.
  • We will have limited space for parent chaperones, and not all applicants will be selected. Please submit the chaperone application as soon as possible. All chaperone applicants should submit the $500 deposit with their application. The deposit will be fully refunded if they are not chosen as a chaperone. 

Lots more information will come out soon, and throughout the year.
