  • Dupont vs. East Bank Middle School Football Game @ RHS Field
    Wednesday, October 30th

    The RHS Band will perform along with the DPMS Band at the Dupont/East Bank MIddle School Football Game which will be held at Riverside Stadium on Wednesday, October 30th.

    Middle School Football games usually start at 6:00pm, but I don't yet know if they will keep this time since the game is at RHS. We will be learning the music that DPMS is using for their Half Time as well as the DPMS School Song and East Bank School Song.
    More details will come as information becomes available - Check Back!

    Black Socks

    We wear Black Pants and Black shoes with our uniform. The only acceptable sock is a Black Sock!. Socks cannot be ankle or "no show", they must be normal Black crew Socks! We do not provide or loan socks, everyone has to bring their own - every time we wear uniforms.


    Report times listed on the band calendar are the times that students are expected to be in the band room to prepare for performances. I realize that it is difficult for some students to get back to school at the report time if they go home first, and for this reason many students stay in Quincy after school. Sometimes the down time between the end of school and the band's report time can exceed two hours. It is simply impossible for me to adequately supervise every child during this "unstructured" or "down" time. Some parents allow their child to walk to McDonalds, some to Walmart, some students have cars and drive wherever they choose, and still some are told to stay in the band room. I have absolutely no way of knowing who is allowed to do what, and wouldn't be able to keep up with it if I were given the information.

    While I don't mind students being around the band room after school I cannot be held accountable for what children may do when out of my sight and possibly off school property when parents allow them to stay in Quincy outside of times that I require or request them to be here.

    If parents choose to allow their child to stay during the time after school and before the stated "report" time then Parents are responsible for their child's actions during that time.

    As usual I will continue to be around the band room after school on these days, will ensure that the students around me are behaving correctly, and will be available to any student who has a problem during this time. Please feel free to email me if you would like to discuss this matter (

    Thank You, Mr. Mullins
