The Strawberry Patch

The Strawberry Patch is the band music library. It originally was a practice room. When I first arrived at RRHS I had a freshman TA who reminded me of those old Strawberry Shortcacke dolls that you squeeze and they smell like strawberries (my baby sister had one). So, my TA got the nickname of "Strawberry". Whenever I gave her work to do, she would often use the practice room next to the band office to sit down and work. Eventually (later that year), we nicknamed the room, "The Strawberry Patch", and the name stuck. Several years later, the music library outgrew the three shelves in my office and I moved the music library into the Strawberry Patch where it remains to this very day.
