CHANGE OF VENUE
Due to a conflict, Everything Day will now be held in the 100 Building at RRHS. Please go directly to the 100 Building upon arrival (not the 1100 Cafeteria). Please read the following information carefully, as it details the changes for the day. The space we will now be using is much smaller, so please follow the flow of the schedule to help avoid any traffic jams, especially for our larger sections.
- Please plan to park outside of the 100 building (located off of N. Lakecreek Dr.) and enter through the main doors of that building.
- Make your way through the Student Center (lobby) and make a right down the far hallway to the Lecture Hall. Signs and students will be there to direct you.
- Section times for the Mandatory Section Meetings have not changed. The meetings will now take place in the 100 building lecture hall.
- From the section meeting, you will follow the flow (check the new map on our Everything Day page) of the arrows through the 100 gym and then out to the Student Center (lobby) for Spirit Wear and Checkout.
- Please bring a little extra patience for our student and parent volunteers as we all make adjustments for the changes.
We’d like to go over a few things before you arrive at Everything Day to try to make the day run quickly and smoothly for all sections.
First, please show up at your scheduled time for the mandatory section meeting.
The schedule for the day is as follows :
- 8:00 AM - Guard
- 9:00 AM - Flutes
- 10:00 AM - Trumpets
- 11:00 PM - Saxophones
- 12:00 PM - Horns
- 1:00PM - Euphoniums/Tubas
- 2:00 PM - Trombones
- 3:00 PM - Clarinets
- 4:00 PM - Percussion
This year, each section time begins with a mandatory section meeting in the 100 Building Lecture Hall. This is also where you will be picking up your packet of forms for the day, so please be sure you and your student attend this meeting. You may also print and fill out your forms ahead of time with the links provided here, with the exception of the Checkout Form (which is a 3 part carbon), but the section meeting is still mandatory.
For all forms - please complete the information as accurately and as neatly as possible. We are required to keep these forms on file and will sort them alphabetically - being able to read the names on the forms helps tremendously!
Cost of the day and payment forms needed: both RRHS and RRISD can only accept cash or checks for these payments.
Family Funding Fees (due at Everything Day and payable to RRHS Band)
- Varsity and Color Guard $400

Extra show, section, and band-a-thon shirts will also be sold along with new spirit wear items by RRBB. RRBB can accept cash, checks, or credit cards for payment.
NEW!!! Map - your roadmap to navigate you though your time slot. **In the interest of saving paper, we will not have printed copies of these available on Everything Day. Please print and bring with you if you would like.**

Passport – you will receive a passport upon arrival. Please be sure to visit all stations and have them sign your passport. This will be checked at the Form Verification station before checkout and helps insure, especially for our new families, that you’ve gotten all required items taken care of.
Order Form (no need to print) – you will receive an order form (in 3-part carbon) upon arrival. This is what you will use to order items and record your family funding amount. We have included this as a reference so you can see the cost of things ahead of time. You’ll need to use the carbon form provided that day.
Competition Meal Order Form – this form is for Varsity Band, Color Guard, and Varsity Crew (JV members who travel with Varsity to assist at competitions). The cost of these meals is included in Varsity/Color Guard Family Funding and the additional $35 fee for Varsity Crew Members. Students will select their choices from each vendor listed and will receive their meals on competition days.
