A Reading Resource You Want to Try

I tested the Novel Effect app myself. It was easily download onto my phone, simple to sign up and navigate around, and some of the books are available in the library if you need to borrow them! The great sound effects will help bring the book alive for you and your child. So, the next time you are reading to your child, give it a try. See what you think. ~ Mrs. Griffis

Drum Major/Drill Instructor Info Meeting


5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

Interested Returning Marchers will meet in the Band hall for a quick briefing on what will happen at the DM/DI tryouts. After the explanation period is over and all questions are answered, Mr. Davidson will no longer answer ANY questions as to tryout information. It will be up to the DM/DI candidate to make all necessary decisions on what to do at the tryout. Be prepared! All documents will be posted on the website.
