Candle Update (Again)

I just spoke to the people over at Chestnut Hill Candle, and our candles are on a pallet for shipment. They guaranteed that the candles will either ship tomorrow or Monday. Which means they should arrive here at RBSMS by Wednesday. So, your student should be receiving their candle orders on Thursday in class. Please be aware that students with larger orders will need help transporting them home, because some of our busses are very crowded.


Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Busch Gardens Reminders

This is a friendly reminder that our Busch Gardens forms and money are due tomorrow. We are expected to send in a payment to Busch Gardens tomorrow, which means that we need all of our students and chaperones to have their forms and money turned in. Unfortunately, some students/chaperones may be removed from the trip roster if they haven’t yet turned in their forms/money (assuming they haven’t already spoken to me).


I want to take a moment to thank the parents who helped us shorten our list of chaperones. If for some reason you aren’t intending on going, I need to know ASAP. Here’s the updated list of chaperones who are signed-up:

Brown, Holly (Kiran Morrill)

Chavez, Tonya (Alena Chavez)

Clark, Heather (Noah McCarty)

Cummings, Melinda (Ty’Yunna Cummings)

Dorough, Kristi (Abigail Ramey)

Downs, Lauri (Leah Downs)

Festival of Lights Parade – Time Change

The organization who puts on all of the Zephyrhills parades is called Main Street Zephyrhills. I just got off the phone with them, and found out that they recently changed the parade times for the Festival of Lights Parade. Unfortunately, that means our current parade times are incorrect. Here are the updated times for this weekend’s parade:

  • 5:15 p.m. – Band Hall Opens
  • 5:30 p.m. – Attendance
  • 6:15/6:30 p.m. – Walk to Parade Route
  • 7:00 p.m. – Parade
  • 8:30/8:45 p.m. – Announcements/Dismissal

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.


Busch Gardens Chaperones

Thank you to all of the parents who got back to me quickly. With your help, we’ve almost narrowed it down. Currently, here’s the parents who are still signed-up to chaperone:

  • Brown, Holly
  • Chavez, Tonya
  • Clark, Heather
  • Dorough, Kristi
  • Downs, Lauri
  • Dye, Toni
  • Johnson, Kimberly
  • Nichols, Meggan
  • O’Donovan, Patti
  • Regan, Jennifer
  • Smith, Lance
  • Walser, Jessica
  • White, Mark


If you’re not listed above and were still planning on attending, I must know today. I have to order our tickets and meal passes. If I don’t hear from you, I am assuming you are no longer attending as a Chaperone.
