RBR needs to raise about $20K additional funds to get to championships. The Boosters are conducting various fundraisers to help us meet this goal. Please help participate and support these efforts so that we can make our goal and send this year's RBR to championships to showcase our performance and compete (and win) against the top schools in the region. And be sure to make your fair-share contributions if you haven't already.
Please show your support and join us in supporting our kids!
Happy Halloween, from the Music Boosters! Enjoy your day off from school, celebrate the holiday, make it spooky, and please stay safe out there tonight.
Our next monthly General Booster Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 20th, from 7:30 to 8:30 PM. All Booster parents are encouraged to attend (i.e. every parent with a child in the music program). We will be meeting in the band room on campus. Coffee and refreshments will be served.
We will be distributing RBR Parent Show Shirts, along with other spirit wear items that you ordered. We will be discussing the upcoming RBR competitions, along with the remaining RBR competitions, Band Fest (what is this, you ask? We will be discussing.), the upcoming Holiday concerts, ordering of concert attire, the Disney Opportunity Drawing Fundraiser, and the kick-off of the Christmas Mickman’s Greenery Sale!
Once the meeting ends, we will be going out to the football field to watch RBR's show run-through, and helping push pit and the newly completed Blue Forest props.
So please come out, and hope to see you all there!
Last week was a busy week! All of the groups at the concert on Wednesday night sounded fantastic! Friday, we had an amazing time meeting our Serrano 8th Graders and celebrating our RBR Seniors at the football game.
To end the week, the RBR took first place at their competition on Saturday right as the storm hit and ended the competition for the day. Well done RBR!

On Friday night, once halftime festivities conclude at tonight's ETHS football game, the RBR seniors, parents, and family members will be heading over to BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse for a Senior Night celebration dinner!
BJ's is located at 24032 El Toro Road in Laguna Hills, at the northwest corner of the former Laguna Hills Mall parking lot and just south of City Hall.
Treat your family to a wide range of meat, seafood, pizza, and dessert entrees, while parents can treat yourselves to one of over 200 on-tap brews.
We are looking forward to celebrating with the seniors and their families tonight!
Tonight is our annual 8th Grade Night with Serrano Intermediate School. Serrano 8th Graders will be joining our music students this late afternoon to perform together. This event gives us a chance to get to know our Serrano 8th graders who plan to attend El Toro next year, along with their parents who we hope will be joining the Boosters as well.
Everyone loves a good bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, right? In that spirit, we are having Bagels & Brew in Lake Forest host an all-day dine-out fundraiser from 6 AM to 4 PM. Stop by for breakfast, lunch, coffee, or whatever, on your way to or from school. They are located in the Heritage Hill Plaza, at the corner opposite Ralph's, a block north of the campus.
25% of all sales will be donated to the ETHS Music Program. Please bring the flyer below and present it at the time of purchase to the cashier so that the music program will be credited.
Hope to see you all there!

Friday night will be a busy one for RBR, for tonight is the night we honor RBR Seniors! It's Senior Night at the football game. Parents, students, and family need to be at the football stadium prior to 7 PM. We will be hosting a ceremony for the seniors prior to the start of the game. Come out and support them, then stay for the game.
We need many parent volunteers: videographer and photographer are the most important for the ceremony (our usual photographer will be in the ceremony and cannot perform camera duty). We will also need prop and pit pushers for the halftime show, more than usual, for our very dedicated senior parents will not be able to assist due to their ceremony and leaving at the end of half-time with their seniors as they continue their celebration! Please sign-up for duties here.
The football game will be a pink out game in support of breast cancer research. Please wear pink if you want to show your support.
RBR Parents, we REALLY need your help! For this season's show, "The Blue Forest," we will need an additional 12 prop pushers for the trees (the forest) both this Saturday at the competition and on Friday for the football game halftime show. Please come to the football field tonight at 8 PM for details on how you can help!
And if you want to sign up for Saturday volunteer duty, including prop pushing, and Sunday prop building, please click here.
