A Note About Homecoming
Homecoming this year is October 26th. The school will have a crazy loud pep rally on that Friday, the game Friday night and a Homecoming Dance on Saturday evening. (Please note: AREA marching competition conflicts with the Homecoming Dance) If you opt to purchase a Homecoming mum for your daughter or garter for your son, now is the time to be placing those orders. Prices for Homecoming mums vary widely. Traditionally, RHS freshmen mums contain mainly maroon and white ribbons with a few navy accents. Sophomore mums contain mainly navy & white ribbons with accents in maroon. Junior mums are an even mix of maroon, navy, and white ribbons. Seniors wear all white mums. There is a good deal of opinion on the class color schemes with respect to Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors so don’t sweat this except leave the all white scheme to the Seniors. Mums and garters can be worn to class on Friday and at the game in the stands but must be taken off before the half-time performance. It’s perfectly acceptable for parents to present these to their students. If you need recommendations or have questions about mums, don’t hesitate to contact me.

All Region auditions will be here before you know it:
* Saturday, November 10th - 9th grade All Region Auditions
