Playathon Planning Begins
Rio’s biggest fundraiser for our band program is November 7, 2014. This year’s theme is “The Roaring Twenties.” Planning meetings will begin September 2. All band students, especially Freshmen, are welcome. More information on this amazing event is available at Playathon Central.
Rio Auditorium – Measure N Meeting
Rio Band Boosters have been trying, for years, to lobby the district for an auditorium for our school. On September 15, 2014 at 7 p.m. at Rio, District officials will be presenting, and answering questions, about Measure N School Bond funding that was passed last year. We need lots of Rio voices at the meeting to support our vision of a school auditorium.
We have had an amazing response to RABB membership this year. Our goal is to exceed the 50% response we had last year. It’s only $20 per family and the funding goes toward instruments, repairs, music and a host of things that benefit all band students. Please join RABB!
Arden Middle School will be celebrating its 100th anniversary this September with a celebration at La Sierra Park on the weekend of 9/13 and 14. Mr. Baker is putting together the musical component of the celebration. Current, former and alumni musicians are all welcome to participate.
