Drama Ads

Drama ads are due in, with payments by Friday, Oct. 3rd – that is this Friday! Thank you to those who have turned in their ads.

By now students should have reached their two businesses. If they are having any problems or if they have any questions, they should contact Kurt and Karen Mungenast directly. The Mungenasts are in charge of the Ad book and also the PSST Vice Presidents of Fundraising. Their email address is: RMHSDramaads@yahoo.com

If you would like to do a family ad in addition to the ads your child was assigned-- which many of us love to do – this family ad can count as one of the two ads that each student is required to obtain.
