RMPA provides cookies and drinks to our band and the visiting band during the 3rd quarter of all Home football games. The students love the treats and the chance to mingle with the visiting band.
Each family is asked to send three dozen cookies to one of the five home games.
You may send the cookies to the Band Room the night of the game or bring them to the Cookie Shack at the start of the game. It is located at the south end of the field. If you use a container that you would like returned, label it with your name and it will be returned to the band room.
The students THANK YOU! The cookies can be home-made or store bought. Brownies, rice krispie treats or a package of Oreos are also great ideas.
