HSEHS Graduation
Tuesday, 19 May 2015 08:33

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.

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.

Chance to Offset Fees!

Parents Needed to Work HSE Track Concessions -- Friday, June 5th


Are you looking for a fun, easy way to help offset your child’s RCG fees and/or next Winter Percussion/Winter Guard fees? HSE Royal Pride has requested help from our parents to help work the concession stand in the football stadium for an upcoming track meet. Each parent will earn $50 towards their student’s account. We need 8 parents to report at 5:00 and work until 9:15 that evening.  Please click on the Sign Up Genius link to sign up. No prior concession stand experience is needed. This event is for PARENTS only. Per Royal Pride’s rules, no students are allowed to work the concession stand.

Chaperone/Volunteers Needed
Tuesday, 05 May 2015 12:09

Parent Chaperones/Volunteers Needed for upcoming RCG season


Are you looking for a way to get involved with the band and get to know a bunch of the kids? Consider volunteering to chaperone a practice, football games and competitions.  The chaperone schedule will be posted on the website in late May. Stay tuned for more info.

This committee watches over our kids at practices, games, contests and concerts.  This includes keeping them safe, providing light first aid (no CPR certification required) and riding the buses to and from events.  We will have a few quick "training sessions" to show volunteers 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. All chaperones/volunteers need to have a current background check on file. It usually takes up to a week for that to process. If you know that you need a background check, please do so at this time.

Blue Band Shirt 2015 Order Time!
Thursday, 30 April 2015 20:20

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.
