Prom of your dreams…or at least dinner at Chipotle instead of Taco Bell! Play Prom Ticket

RUHS Winter Guard, Drumline and Jazz Band
The RUHS Jazz Band participated in the NAU Jazz Festival and earned Superior with
Distinction, the highest ranking possible. Our Winter Guard Black group moved up a few
divisions into the Scholastic AA Local and has won first place multiple times. Winter Guard
Purple has also done very well and competed in the Winter Guard International Western
Regional competition and placed 9th in the finals. Winter Drumline has also done very well
