All, We hope this email finds you well! We are excited to offer two (2) fall basketball shooting camps on Saturday, October 16 & Saturday, October 23. We will be having everyone participate at the same time block. We have adjustable basketball hoops for the younger age group. The camp will be held from 9:00am-11:30am. We will be focusing on the fundamentals of shooting, shot preparation, finishing, shooting on the move, and shooting off the dribble. All the money made from these shooting camps goes towards our players housing scholarships.

FREE Children's Orthopedic Clinic
This week the RCMS band department will be taking in new members in ALL grade levels, no experience required! There are free instruments available, and as an added bonus we are taking all band members (6th-8th grade) to Holiday World in May. Members who may have previously dropped due to COVID remote learning are invited back at this time as well. To join, either send an email to Mr. Combs at firstname.lastname@example.org, or come to the band room tonight during Open House and sign the “Band Sign-Up Sheet.” New beginners who join will have weekly lessons during ½ of a PE period. We will try to rotate weekly between the first half of PE and the second half of PE (so that you only miss out on a game twice a month, and on stretches twice a month). You will also be placed in a band together that will meet every day during Advisory starting second quarter. Thank you, and I hope you all have a fantastic school year! Eric Combs
