Krispy Kreme Fundraiser

This is our last fundraiser of the year!  

Music students will be able to pre-sell donuts by the dozen (No individual donuts sales please) for $12 per dozen.  For each dozen sold, the student will receive $6 to help fund their ASB personal account for Disneyland.  Due to the Federal Wellness Policy, no student can sell Krispy Kreme donuts to other students during school hours.  Please make sure to pick up all of your pre-sold donuts on the day of distribution and deliver them to your buyers.

Forms are due on Wednesday, February 5.

Order pick up is on Wednesday February 12 at 7:00am at the West Creek Park parking lot.

Volunteers Needed!

We need your help! Every year, all instrumental students across the district audition for a spot in the District Honor Band. This year, Rio Norte has been chosen for the hosting of this event. To make this run as smoothly as possible for all our students, we need a lot of help.

Please go to the Sign Up Genius link below and find way you can help out. All band and choir students are requested to help out with a shift on either Friday or Saturday.

Thank you, families, for helping our Music Department!

Cuesta Vocal Jazz Festival

On November 7 to 9, the Rio Norte JazzHawks traveled to San Luis Obispo with the Valencia High School Vocal Jazz choirs to participate in the annual Cuesta Vocal Jazz Festival.  This was our third year participating.  Aside from giving an excellent performance, the JazzHawks also participated in music clinics held on campus where they learned vocal techniques from experts.  Congratulations, JazzHawks, for doing an awesome job!
