This is Christopher Jones, Director of Bands at Richland County High School. As you are all aware, 8th grade students at St. Joe & RCMS register for next year’s classes at Richland County High School. I have received a few messages asking for which band their sons and daughters should register at RCHS. To help parents out, I have created a webpage that should help answer your questions. That website is www.richlandcountyhsbands.org/rchs-ensembles.html.
RCHS has five ensembles; however, freshman generally register for only three of those ensembles. Those ensembles are the marching band (which meets only over the 1st quarter over zero & 1st periods), Symphonic Band (which meets over terms 2, 3, & 4) and the Jazz Lab Band, which meets over all four terms.
Students that register for both the marching band & the 2nd term Symphonic Band receive a PE credit. A PE credit is not offered for the Symphonic Band over terms 3 & 4. No other ensembles receive a PE credit.
To be eligible for the Spring 2018 Disney World trip, students must be registered for at least two terms in the 2018-2019 academic school year.
Again, for further information, please visit www.richlandcountyHSbands.org/rchs-ensembles.html.
As always, please feel free to contact me should you have any further questions. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. My work phone number is (618) 393-2191 ext. 3137.
