Back to School Night

Next Tuesday, August 28th is Back to School night. All High School band students can pick up their schedules and find their lockers, rooms, etc. at 6pm. We must rehearse during our regular 6:30-8:30pm time due to the football game on August 31st.

I realize this is inconvenient, but due to the recent weather setbacks we must take every opportunity we can to get "Pirates" on the field with music.

Football Game August 31st

Reminder! Our 1st performance is Friday, August 31st.
