Chaperones

Help Needed for Ben Davis Contest

 

We still need five more chaperones for the upcoming Ben Davis Contest this Saturday, October 4th.  The times on Sign Up Genius are still "guesstimations" as the itinerary had not come out yet but will be updated soon.   http://www.signupgenius.com/go/508044baba92da31-chaperones

Rita has put together a description of what a chaperone would do:
Bus chaperones. This might sound intimidating but it is SO easy.  It just requires you to take attendance while the kids board the buses at HSEHS, making sure the kids remain seated and relatively quiet.....they’ll talk and maybe sing like crazy (they love to be silly) but you are there to guide them to be considerate and safe. Once we arrive at the competition you will have free access to the stadium to watch the other bands and also to see our Royal Command & Guard perform their show.  There will be one lead chaperone on each trip and will take care of any first aid that might be needed.  They will stick with the band through warm ups and tag along with them during the performance. Once awards are complete, chaperones just need to head back to the bus and get ready to take attendance for the  return trip back to HSEHS. Easy, right???   Even if you think your child would be mortified if you chaperoned, don’t worry.  You are not required to ride their bus. They “say” they don’t want you there as a chaperone but I bet they wouldn’t mind.Who wouldn’t want free transportation, free parking and free admittance to the contest???

Please consider volunteering during practice or on the bus for competitions.  Sign up is really easy through this website.  You will need to have a current background check on file and have watched the anti bullying webinar.  If you have any questions regarding chaperoning, background checks, or info on the webinar, please do not hesitate to contact Rita Keeling at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Concert Band Tuxedo and Dress Information

 

The first Concert Band performance is Thursday, October 16th.

Payment for tux shirts ($17 white shirt/$22 black shirt), tux rental fee ($20) and dresses ($65) is due.

Tuxedo Pants: Please have your student try on their pants with their dress shoes to check the length.  The tux pants hem may need to be altered, and the hemming is your responsibility.  Please DO NO CUT any material when altering the length as we reuse the pants year after year.

Tuxedo Shirts: Please keep in mind that we have fitted the shirts to fit according to neck size and to give some room for growth.  Tuxedo shirts may be large in the torso on some students but that can't be helped.  For freshman boys, the black tux shirts only come in one sleeve length so for some students they may be a little long or a little short.

Dresses:  The dress only comes in one length so it will need to be altered in most cases. There are some dresses that need to be raised in the shoulders to get a better fit.  A label has been attached to those specific dresses.  Please do not alter the waistline as it needs to be a little loose to give room for growth.

RCG Spirit Wear Now Available at HSE Fan Stand!

 

Thanks to the work of Kay Soforenko working with the HSE Fan Stand we can now order RCG custom clothing!  The website is hsefanstand.com.  There is a section titled "Royal Tees".  Under that tab, there are now these options available: Marching Band, Color Guard, and Percussion.  Beyond that, you can also customize with names if you wish.  This clothing will be available year-round.  And as announced earlier that is also where the RCG garage signs are now available for purchase.

If you missed any of the previously announced and now closed spirit wear order opportunities this is a great way to be able to still show your support for the RCG and also support the student-run HSE Fan Stand!

LUCAS OIL Sunday September 28th, looking for two additional people to work this game.  Correct game time is at 1PM and has been updated on the volunteer site. 

Also looking to fill spots for October 4th "Circle City Classic"and October 5th "Ravens".

We especially need people to work the Circle City Classic.  I know this is same day as the Ben Davis contest, but we need to staff the stand or we could forfeit the end of season bonus.

RCG Parents working concessions-October 10th

HSE band parents to work football concession stand October 10th


There is one more opening for a parent that wants to help offset their student band fees. Royal Pride PTO has requested the help of HSE band parents to work concessions at the October 10th football game. Each adult that works will earn approximately $40-$50 towards their student's band account.   Unfortunately students are not allowed to work concessions.  This money can be applied to RCG, Winter Guard or Winter Percussion fees.  Payment will be issued by Royal Pride to our student account treasurer at the end of the football season.

Secret Buddies

Secret Buddies on Competition Days

 

For the new parents (and a reminder for the veterans!), the RCG has a thing called "Secret Buddies".  The kids were all given the option to participate in the secret buddy tradition.  Kids fill out a list of their favorite things (i.e.: drinks, snacks, candies, hobbies, etc).  These lists are then put into a hat and each participant is assigned their secret buddy.  Then they go out and purchase some of their buddy's favorite items.  We try to encourage the kids to stick within the $5.00 range.  Typical items in a buddy bag are a drink, snack candy and a dollar store type of toy.  The kids that participate are then given their buddy bag when they board the bus BACK to HSE.  This occurs for every competition with the exception of our own Royal Invitational.  It's a secret "who has who" for a buddy until the last competition.  If your child IS participating please remind them to bring their buddy's bag with them the morning of the competitions.  At some point the students will know what bus their buddy is riding to the competitions.  Please make sure your secret buddy's bag is marked with their name AND bus number.  If a student forgets a day then they are expected to "double up" on the next week's bag for their buddy.   If you are participating PLEASE TRY VERY HARD NOT TO FORGET!  It's no fun when someone has given something to their own buddy but their buddy has forgotten them and they don't receive a "buddy bag" when everyone else is!
