Summer Update

Keeping our band student community connected

Summer Events Summary

So thankful for the tremendous efforts, involvement and leadership that was a part of the Marching Storm summer parade season and California Dreamin' trip to Huntington Beach, CA. The work, dedication and accomplishments of our students at SRRHS impact other communities and the accolades that returned back to me should give everyone cause to know that our students do amazing work, accomplish amazing things and represent our community with dignity and pride.


Pictures of the success of our students can be found on the Facebook groups "California Dreamin' 2014" and "the Official Marching Storm group". Please feel free to request to be a member of these groups if you would enjoy viewing our events and accomplishments.

Getting Involved with supporting Music!

The wheels of activity never stop and the needs of a program like ours never end. Students and families are encouraged to get involved with four important events happening in the near future. Please check these out and get involved as you are able.


1. Music Boosters Meat Raffle at Bubbas. Friday, July 18, 6:00 until we sell all of the boards! Proceeds go to the music boosters to help band and choir with their extra needs to service our students.

2. Brat Sales at Sauk Rapids Coborns Superstore. Visit Coborns in Sauk Rapids and purchase a Brat or Hot Dog with a beverage for $2 and help support the Sauk Rapids-Rice Music Boosters. Sales occur Friday and Saturday (July 25 and 26).

3. Benton County Fair parking helpers needed! Here is another great opportunity to raise funds for our new Marching Band Uniform Drive. Are you willing to donate your time to help us raise funds? Contact Julie Johnson to secure a time to help park cars! (jjfarm65@gmail.com) Every day 12-4 or 4-close and Sunday 9-3.

4. Bailey Benoit is working to get some car wash opportunities together to help us raise funds for the Marching Band Uniform Drive. She is looking at weekends in August. Please communicate with her if you would love some good "clean" fun helping us raise money for uniforms.


Hope the rest of your summer is wonderful!
