RCG Member Attire for Football Game

RCG Member Attire for Friday, August 29th Football Game


Don't forget, all RCG members need to wear their "Parade Attire" for the performance at Friday's football game.  That means they need to wear the BLUE HSE t-shirt (that they wore in the parade), Khaki shorts, white socks and athletic shoes (no sandals or flip flops).  Since there will be practice immediately following school at 3:15, be sure to have your student either wear or bring all the required items with them to school so that they have them for the performance.
  • The RCG will be served dinner before the game.  This week's menu is hot dogs, chips, carrots, cookies and Gatorade.  If your child doesn't like hot dogs please plan on sending a sack dinner.  They will not have access to the concession stand before or during the game.
  • We are still in the midst of our belated "summer temps" so students should bring a water jug with them to school.  They'll need them for the after school practice and can fill them up at the school.

Soda Drive for Royal Invitational

Don't forget to sign up and donate soda or water for the Royal Invitational.  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/508044baba92da31-sodawater.   It must be Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite or Dasani Water.  We cannot accept any "zero" or "caffeine free" sodas or any other brand of water. HSE schools has a contract with Coca Cola and we can only sell these products.  This week-end is a great time to purchase these items as most of the larger grocery store chains have the Coke products on sale for Labor Day week-end!

There will be 5 opportunities to drop off your donations.  Tuesday, September 2nd at practice pickup; Wednesday, September 3rd at both drop off and pick up; and Saturday, September 6th at both drop off and pick up.  Please meet Rita Keeling or Melissa Schulman at the sidewalk entrance of door #13.  They will have a wheeled cart to accept your donations.  If you have any questions, please contact Rita Keeling at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Heat Safety

The heat of summer is finally here.  Please be aware that next week  is expected to be very hot so please take this seriously and be prepared.  The directors are adjusting their break schedule and doing other things to make sure that we are safe but we need everyone to be prepared like any athlete would when exercising in the summer heat.  Specifically:

- Do not send your child without a water jug.  When too many students don’t bring their own water we  end up with lines for the band’s  water dispensers.  We want your student to spend their breaks drinking water rather than waiting in line.

- Drink water at home.  We are concerned that students are not well hydrated before practice starts.  Dehydration takes time to occur yet Saturday we had some students at the medical station with headaches and other symptoms within 30 minutes of practice starting.  Our chaperones notice that very often the students who are coming to medical for a break report that they didn’t drink any water before practice.  IHSAA recommends that athletes drink 17-20 ounces of water or sports drink 2-3 hours before exercise in hot weather.

- Make sure your child knows that the chaperones will refill water containers for the students at lunch in the Leonard Concession.

- Make sure your child understands that they need to drink before they are thirsty.  By the time you are thirsty you are already dehydrated so they should just think of it like filling the gas tank – you don’t want to wait for the warning light.

We are meeting with Mr. Niemiec and our chaperone chairperson on Monday to review our procedures and to determine if there are further ways that we can work together to improve our safety.  Thanks for your help in this.

Royal Invitational--September 20th


The Royal Invitational is quickly approaching!  For those that may not know this is largest fundraiser for the Royal Command and Guard!  It is our turn to host some amazing high school marching bands in competition and to dazzle the crowd at the end of the night with our own RCG marching in exhibition.  That said it takes A LOT of people to put this event together and to make it successful!  We need help from each and every RCG family to keep it going and being known as one of the best competitions in the state!  The link for volunteer shift sign ups will soon be available so please keep Saturday, September 20th open to help with this event!

The next RI planning meeting is September 3rd at 7:30 at the high school.  However, co-chair Mark Mooney will be at the Royal Guardians meeting this Wednesday, August 27th if anyone has questions.

We also need water and Coke product donations for the concession stand the day of the Royal Invitational.  Attached is a flyer that will also be going home with the students as well after practice.

Please remember that we DO need help from every family to make this a successful fundraising event for the RCG, both in the drink donations and in signing up to work at least one shift (but why stop at just one!?!) on September 20th!!!!  Questiions?  Contact co-chairs Greg Moore at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
