RP South HS
20801 South School Road
Peculiar, MO 64078
Students will need to wear nice dress pants/skirts and their band polos.
Students will begin their large group rehearsals next week, Monday-Thursday during blocks 3 & 4. Students will need to bring their instruments and music, as well their portable music stands (if they have one) from home.
Students will perform for the school on May 12th in the morning around 8:35AM.
Eagle Glen Borrowed Instruments
If your child has borrowed a school owned instrument, it must be returned to Eagle Glen after the morning school performance. We must send those off for summer cleaning and repair.
Thank you for your help with this!
