Royal Guardians Meeting

Royal Guardians Parent Booster Meeting


Wednesday, May 27th at 7:00 PM at HSE High School Main Campus.  Look for signage for room location.

Also Wednesday, May 27th at 6:00 PM at HSE High School Main Campus:

As many of you know, we have committed to raise significant dollars in an effort to purchase new band uniforms.  We are also in a budget crunch because of the funding shortfall from the corporation this year.  With that in mind, we are going to also have a Fundraising Meeting for anyone who would like to help with the Fundraising Committee.  You do not need to be the Chairperson as we've already filled that role.  We are looking for as many parents as possible that would be willing to help in any capacity to help generate giving.  This will be an idea generating meeting with the intent of formulating a plan of attack to raise a goal of $40,000.  You will not be asked to commit time at this meeting, just show up with ideas.



Chaperones Needed
Friday, 22 May 2015 11:46

Chaperones needed for first week of RCG practice (June 8th-June 11th).

It’s that time of year when we are looking for volunteers to chaperone the marching band practices.  There will be LOTS of opportunities for ALL parents to chaperone throughout the season but I am asking that the first week, be covered by our “seasoned” chaperones. If you chaperoned for marching band practice last year, I’d love to have your help this first week.  I have created a “Sign Up Genius” link with the time slots available. I have broken down each practice into two time slots. If you would like both time slots on a given day, by all means, go ahead and sign up for both. Your background check must be up to date. If you are not sure, please contact me. https://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm?go=w.ProcessCreate7&requesttimeout=360

For the new parents: If you would like an easy, fun way to get involved with the marching band this year, please consider chaperoning at a practice, football game or a competition. This includes keeping them safe, providing light first aid (no CPR certification required) and riding the buses to and from events.  I will have a few quick "training sessions" (dates still TBD) to show you where we keep all of the first aid supplies and items needed for practices and competitions. You are welcome to have younger siblings with you while you chaperone.  I will have more information available at the “First Night Parent Fair” which will be held during the first full marching band practice on Monday, June 8th. To chaperone, you will need to have a current background check on file and have watched the anti-bullying webinar. Background checks will take up to a week to be processed. Attached is the information regarding the requirement. Please direct any questions to Rita Keeling at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Commencement is Saturday, June 6th


The Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band will be performing at Commencement this year. It will be on Saturday, June 6th at Indiana Farmers Coliseum at the State Fairgrounds. This “Graduation Ensemble” is comprised of all non seniors in 2014-2015 Symphonic Band or Wind Ensemble. This performance is part of the curriculum and is treated as the performance/playing portion of the semester final exam. Students who DO NOT perform at Graduation will perform a Playing Exam. (Please have your student speak to the directors if they are NOT going to participate at Graduation)

Chaperones are also needed and you will have received an e-mail from Rita Keeling about that.

** As of May 22nd, there are still two chaperones needed for Commencement.  You can sign up at this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/508044baba92da31-chaperones2

Attached you will find student graduation information and chaperone information which both include the day's schedule and also the graduation waiver students not playing at graduation will need to turn in to their directors.



RCG Uniforms
Sunday, 17 May 2015 16:50

Have You Been Fitted For A Blue and Black RCG Uniform?


All fittings need to be completed by May 29th at the very latest.

Your student was probably seen by someone in March during band class for a "fitting" which just consisted of measurements taken. Those measurements were for NEW uniforms only and don't apply now since we will be using our current uniforms this season.


If you have not yet made your appointment to be fitted in a blue and black uniform, please contact Mrs. Grosso right away at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

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 NOTE - Uniform Fitting Appointments are not Needed for Percussion, Incoming Senior and Color Guard members.




Please try on your marching shoes from last year to see if they still fit (and are in good condition).  If they don't, be sure to let me know that you need to order a new pair.  They cost approximately $40 based on last year's price.

For uniform appointments, please contact Mrs. Grosso at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Blue Band Shirt 2015 Order Time!

Band Shirt Info from Kelly Battas


For new members a brief explanation: when the RCG participates in the Fishers Freedom Festival Parade we wear our blue band shirts.  Typically, we also wear them to the first home football game and you are welcome to wear them any other time to show you are a member of HSE band. All parents and siblings are welcome to purchase a shirt to show your support of the RCG. Parents that walk along with us at the parade should also get a shirt to wear.

New members of RCG will get a shirt free. If you were a member of the RCG last season you received a shirt last year and will not get another free shirt. Both returning and new students are welcome to purchase additional shirts to have as a spare or if they have lost theirs or it simply doesn’t look very fresh.

As always, you may pay for them with cash, check, or the funds in your student account.

You may print out the form and take to your uniform fitting with Mrs. Grosso or she will have forms there you can fill out.  Color guard: Lora Prange will also take your shirt orders at your uniform fittings if you like. I will also be collecting orders at the next Royal Guardians meeting on Wednesday, May 29th.  The last date to place an order prior to the parade will be at the First Night Parent Fair on Monday, June 8th.

I will be handing out the shirts at the last practice before the parade which is Thursday, June 25th.
