NOTE:  We are in search of a person willing to do the position of treasurer.
Class representatives will likely be calling parents to keep them informed, update our contact list, or invite them to participate in decision-making.

Highlights
1.  We will be initiating a Christmas wreath and planter sale, in conjunction with the grad class.  Customers can order wreaths, pointsettas or planters from either the band students or the grad students.  Thank you to grad parents and band parents for their collaborative efforts with this popular fund-raiser.  Money raised for band will help to pay for field trips and festivals.  Order information will be distributed soon - watch for emails, or see our ads on Facebook.
2.  We are hoping to have our Christmas concert on Dec. 13.  All band students are expected to attend.
3.  Grade 8 & 9 students may have an opportunity to travel to see a show just before Christmas.  More information as it becomes available.
4.  Congratulations to Montana Ross, Vaughn Beaulieu-Mercredi and Shawn Hall as they represent RMSS at the ABA Alberta Wind Symphony (provincial honor band) next weekend in Red Deer.
