RCG Work day this Saturday 9-12
Sunday, 23 August 2015 19:15

This is the last non-holiday weekend before we go to our first contest so we are going to have a 3 hour work session Saturday morning from 9-12 to get our semi trailer and equipment ready for the season.  We have lights out, wheels broken, and other things that need to be taken care of so that things go smoothly once we hit the road.  if you have small tools such as cordless drill, screwdrivers, sockets, etc you can bring them or if not just bring yourself.  We have a mix of skilled tasks such as repairs and simple things such as cleaning that need to be done.  This offer includes free entertainment from our students as they practice in the parking lot!

Please rsvp to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you think you can make it so that we can plan our work based on how many people we have and we can communicate any weather related changes.

Concert Band Attire
Sunday, 23 August 2015 14:23

Mrs. Grosso will begin concert band attire fittings Tuesday, August 25th, during all band classes.  Due to the size of some of the classes, this will be about a 2 week process, so it may be a while before your student is fitted.  There are different requirements for each band, so please look for your student's band below to see what is needed.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Grosso at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


Wind Symphony (WS) & Chamber Ensemble (CE):

All students must wear solid black attire.

Boys:  You will be fitted for a black tuxedo shirt only.  The cost will be $22.  Please note that the shirts that we purchase only come in one sleeve length, so they may be a little long or short in the sleeves for some students.  The critical thing that we need to fit for is the neck.  We want to make sure that the collar isn't too tight and that they have some room to grow.  With that being said, for some of the boys, the shirts are going to be a bit big in the torso in order to get the proper fit in the neck, but when they tuck their shirt in it looks fine.

You will need to provide your own solid black slacks, belt, socks, and shoes.

NOTE:  If you were issued a black tuxedo shirt last year and will be wearing it again this year for WS or CE band, please try it on to be sure it is not too tight in the neck or elsewhere.


You will need to provide your own solid black attire.  It can be a dress or a blouse with slacks or a skirt.  Solid black shoes are needed as well.


Symphonic Band (SB) and Wind Ensemble (WE):


You will be fitted in a school owned tuxedo and white shirt that you will need to purchase.  The tuxedo will be rented for $25 for the school year.  You will have to purchase the shirt for $17.

NOTE:  If you have a white tuxedo shirt from last year, please try it on to be sure it still fits and isn't too tight in the neck or elsewhere.

You will need to provide your own solid black belt, socks, and shoes.

You will also be responsible for getting the slacks hemmed if needed.  Please be sure not to have any material cut from the slacks as they are used year after year for various students.


You will be fitted in a floor length black dress and the cost is $65.  The dresses come in only one length which is quite long, so the majority of girls will need their dresses hemmed.   It is a 2-layer dress, so the alteration cost is typically $30-$40.   I do have the below used dresses that are for sale if you are interested.  Since all of these dresses have been hemmed to the previous owner's height, that will be a consideration as to whether or not a used dress will work for an individual.

Five Used Dresses Available for Sale:  Sizes 4 (1), 6 (1), 8 (2), 14 (1) - Cost:  $30 each

If you think you'd be interested in purchasing one of the used dresses for your student, please e-mail me right away so that I can make a note to have them try on that specific dress to see if the length will work.  It will be first come, first served.

You will need to provide your own solid black shoes as well.

RCG Members:  If you have money in your Student Account, you may charge attire fees to your account.

RCG Pit Crew Volunteer Help Needed
Thursday, 20 August 2015 17:23

The RCG Pit/Prop Crew Sign-Up Genius site can be accessed at the following link: Sign Up Now!

There are some Pit/Prop Crew volunteer slots still available for our next football game on September 4th vs. Avon. If you are interested in helping move the pit equipment or the new props during football games or at contests, you will be serving a valuable role to help our kids get on and off the field quickly and safely so that they can focus on performing.

Pit/Prop Crew volunteers receive free admission to the game and it’s a great way to interact with the kids and other band parents. No experience is needed and your child doesn't have to be part of the Pit in order for you to help out.  We have parents from all sections of the band and the color guard. So click on the SignUpGenius link above to sign up today and join in the fun of the RCG Pit/Prop Crew!

RCG Needs Practice Prop Help
Monday, 17 August 2015 02:30


We need the help of a handful of parent each practice. Both at the beginning of practices (5:00 Monday’s and Wednesday’s) and the end of practices (8:30 Monday’s and Wednesday’s) One of our props for the season stands 13 feet tall and requires significant effort to put it together. To limit this, we are storing the prop under the bleachers with a large tarp over it. This is where we need the help. We need to be able to pull the tarp off the prop before practices and help replace the tarp after practices.

If you are able to help, please meet near the entrance to the fence outside the band room exterior doors.

We are looking for a more permanent solution, so this task will only be needed for a couple weeks.
