Riley Street Middle School



• Congratulations to the Riley Middle School 7th and 8th Grade Bands for their outstanding performances at the MSBOA Band & Orchestra Festival on Wednesday, February 28th. Both Riley Middle School Bands received a 1st Division Superior Rating (highest rating) in both concert performance and sight reading! The 7th Grade Band was one of only four 7th Grade Bands in the entire MSBOA District to receive straight 1st Division ratings from all four of the judges.

• Congratulations to Riley Street MS Band 7th Graders Lydia Poortenga and Rylan Cliff for being the top two sellers for our Sub Sandwich Fundraiser!

• A Huge THANK YOU! to Mrs. Poel, Mrs. Poortenga, and Mrs. Sheckler, for helping us move instruments at the MSBOA Festival, as well as to the Riley parents who were able to attend our festival performances.  It's a wonderful experience for parents to see their children perform in a district-wide event and really provides great support for our young musicians.

• Our 6th Grade Band students have a concert coming up on March 22nd at the Hudsonville Performing Arts Center.  Please come join us to celebrate their awesome progress this year!

• Riley Middle School Spring Concert (yes Spring is on its way!) will be on Thursday, May 3rd at the Hudsonville Performing Arts Center.  Join us for a great concert titled "At the Movies".

Thank you for your time and support of your child in the Riley Middle School Band. If you have any questions please contact me through email or at my office phone.
