Grapevine Mustang Band
Week of March 14
***Spring Break Edition***
Notes from the Directors:
We are asking all parent for help to ensure students are practicing each day over spring break. It is IMPERATIVE for students to play their instruments each day of break leading into our UIL Recording sessions. We need for the students to remain engaged and "in shape" for the week we return.
