SPIRIT WEAR UPDATE
Spirit wear orders have been processed and will be shipping this week! We can’t wait to see our students promoting R Band! If you have any feedback on the items or ordering process, please send an email to Mr. Moon (email@example.com).
ATTENDANCE FOR REMOTE STUDENTS
As we continue into second semester, there have been some questions about what constitutes “participation” in the class for students who are on Remote Learning.
All students will need to have their cameras with instrument in hand on to be counted as present for the class period. Per Dr. Shaw’s notice on 2/1, it is our expectation at Roswell High School that students who are assigned to Remote Learning participate synchronously in all classes as scheduled during the school day. We understand that COVID-19 has created some extenuating circumstances and difficulties for our students. If there is a reason that a student who is assigned to Remote Learning cannot attend class synchronously, the student should immediately communicate with Mr. Moon or Mr. Long.
CONFERENCE CALL SCHEDULED FOR NEW and EXISTING STUDENTS – 2/25
We would like to invite you to our Band Information Meeting for Rising 9th Graders! It’s scheduled for Thursday, 2/25 via ZOOM. We are inviting ALL CURRENT band parents and students to attend as well since we didn’t have Marching Band in 2020. We’ll be discussing marching band registration and the possibility of band camp this year!

BAND BOOSTERS UPDATES
M.A.R.C.H. 2021 PACKETS DISTRIBUTED
If you haven’t reviewed the M.A.R.C.H packet with your student, please take a moment to do so. This is our only fundraiser for the school year, and it’s important we have your help.
Your student’s goal is to raise $200 by Friday, March 12.
Achieve $200 and then keep going for fun prizes and rewards!
· Reach out to family, neighbors, friends, co-workers and request at least a $20 donation for your day of community service.
· Think big! Ask for a $200 donation from donors. Tell them if they donate $200, they will sponsor one student for the entire year.
· If the donor owns a business, ask for a $600 donation. They can have their company’s logo on the M.A.R.C.H. 2022 T-shirt. Donors LOVE when the students approach them. JUST ASK.
Make sure you have saved March 13 on your family calendars. This is the service date and we need all students to participate!
Go to our website for the Student Information Packet.
The RHS Band Boosters needs support in the following roles. Contact President@RoswellBand.com if you are able to help. Volunteering is an easy way to learn some new skills and meet other great band parents. Get out and get involved!
Banquet Committee Chair
This committee chair heads up a small group of volunteers and coordinates with the band directors to plan and execute the end-of-year band banquet. The banquet is held at the beginning of May and typically involves food, music, an awards ceremony, and signing of senior photos. Ideally, the committee would start meeting in February to set a date and plan the budget, location, food, theme, communication, and award order placement. If you love planning events, the band could use your talents!
Media Committee Chair
This person coordinates the work of our parent photographers and videographers. The media chair makes sure every band event is covered and manages the posting of photos and videos online (working with the VP of Communications). The media chair is not responsible for doing all the photography and videography, but your talents are certainly welcome!
Vice President(s) of Fundraising
Fundraising is truly the heart and soul of the booster organization. It is why we are here, to help change the lives of our band students. We are in dire need of some creative parents to help us get organized, make phone calls, plan events and help us prepare for 2021. Remember, you don’t have to DO all of the fundraising; we simply need you to help orchestrate our efforts. Our goal is to have fewer fundraising events, but make the ones we do have larger and more impactful. Have some new ideas for fundraising? Let’s talk!
Vice President of Support Services
The VP of Support Services recruits band parents for all the various areas in which the band needs help in order to run smoothly. If you are outgoing and love working with people, this position is for you! You do not have to be at all of our events. We just need you to be the main point of contact for volunteer sign-ups, registration and training. We’ll also ask for you to take care of ordering miscellaneous things that may be needed to support the band program, such as shirts and name tags for our volunteers and first aid supplies.
