News from RCG Uniform Department

 

UNIFORM FITTING APPOINTMENT REQUIRED

Thank you to all those members who have already signed up for their uniform fitting appointment. However, there are still many of you that need to contact Mrs. Grosso for your appointment.  Below is an updated listing of appointments that are still available as of April 18th.

IMMEDIATE Response Needed

Since we will not be getting new uniforms this season as previously anticipated, all instrument players* (NOT COLOR GUARD) need to sign up for a uniform fitting appointment which will take place in May this year.  (Your student was probably seen by someone last month during band class for a "fitting" which just consisted of measurements taken.  Those measurements were for the NEW uniforms only and don't apply now since we will be using our current uniforms.) There are 8 dates of fittings for you to choose from below, so please look at your calendars and contact Mrs. Grosso at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Available Fitting Times as of Saturday, April 18th (Beginning at 5 p.m. and ending at 9 p.m.)

All appointments are on a first come, first served basis.

A fitting usually takes about 30 minutes per student and will take place in the uniform room (which is inside the band room) at the Main Campus of HSE HS.

SPECIAL NOTES - Uniform Fitting Appointment Not Needed for the following members:

ALL PERCUSSION MEMBERS:  Fittings will be done during your after school percussion practice May 11th, 13th, and 18th, so you DO NOT have to sign up for your fitting.  Mrs. Grosso has blocked out those three days for percussion fittings.

INCOMING SENIORS:   Your fittings will be done during band class beginning May 15th and continuing through the following week, so you DO NOT have to sign up for your fitting.

COLOR GUARD:  Mrs. Prange, the Color Guard Director, will take care of your costume fittings.
