Welcome All New and Returning Rio Norte Music Families 

Welcome to Rio Norte JHS 2019-2020 music program. We’re looking forward to another fantastic year for our music students. Below is important information regarding formals, t-shirts, important dates, Disneyland Festival, fundraisers, Music in the Parks, and volunteer opportunities. Mark your calendars, our first event is our Welcome Rio Norte Music Ic Cream Social on Thursday, August 22nd at 6:00pm at Rio Norte JHS.

Formals: Your student will be fitted for a formal during the Ice Cream Social  - August 22nd. Girls/Women's New formals cost $79.  Boys New formals cost $59. For more information and to view sizing charts, please see our “Formals & Spiritwear” page.  If you are interested in purchasing a used formal, there are a limited amount available at a reduced rate. Please wait until your child has been fitted before purchasing a used formal.  The sizing is slightly different because it is formal wear.

Rio Norte Music Spiritwear: It is recommended that music students buy a “got music” t-shirt. These t-shirts are worn during Music Dept. events and casual performances. Order forms are currently available in the music room or you can visit our "Formals & Spiritwear" page.  All T-Shirt orders must be turned into the ASB Secretary no later than Monday, Aug. 20th.  Sorry, no late turn-ins will be accepted.  Please make checks payable to Rio Norte ASB.

Students will then return home on Sunday morning. If you are interested in being a chaperone please see our  "Disneyland" page and/or email rionortemusic11@gmail.com. Chaperone spots are limited.

Fundraisers:  We offer a variety of fundraisers to help our families raise funds towards their Disneyland Festival, including Krispy Kreme, Butter Braid, Sees Candy, and more. We also hold Music Department fundraisers to help fund our music program here at Rio Norte JHS. 

Our first fundraiser will be Krispy Kreme sales starting xxxxx. Orders are due xxxxx Delivery will be xxxxx 7am in the park across the street from Rio Norte (West Creek Park)  As you may know, the Rio Norte JHS music program is currently self-sustaining and receives no state funding. We strive each year to keep our program strong.

Music in the Parks: The Disneyland Festival that we participate in is part of the Music in the Parks Festivals. Music in the Parks is an organization that sets up music festivals across the nation and ties these festivals to fun theme parks in the area. We are extremely fortunate to have the privilege to host this amazing festival on multiple weekends in April and May. Not only is this a great organization but this is a wonderful opportunity to raise funds to support our music program here at Rio Norte JHS. In order to make these festivals a success we depend on student and parent volunteers. More information will be coming out throughout the year.

Music Department Volunteers: We have many volunteer opportunities throughout the year. If you are interested in joining out Booster Board please contact our Booster Communication, at rionortemusic11@gmail.com
