Message from the Directors

Thank you to everyone who helped make Senior Night a success! The band performed spectacularly, and it was a lovely night to celebrate our Seniors!

This Friday (the day AFTER Thanksgiving), we will be hosting the first round of the playoffs. If you are in town, please make an effort to help cheer on the football team! Call times are normal 5:15 for Guard and Percussion and 5:45 for winds. We look forward to seeing you there!

Pre-orders will also be made as normal. Please bring the money for them on Friday.

If your child was planning on auditioning for All-State/District Band this year, please make sure they have filled out the Google Form on eClass before the end of the month.

We hope you all are well and have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
