Happy short holiday week! Check out the latest information below about what's going on in the band room these days.
1. Pep Band - The pep band season kicks off on Tuesday with boys basketball. Report time is 6:30; sign up on the bulletin board in the band room! We could especially use a few more players for this Tuesday night; remember that everyone needs to attend four games this year. (But more importantly, it's fun!)
Click here for the full calendar. Parents, please help your children check their calendars and know which dates to sign up for. Note that each game will count as service hours toward graduation requirements.
2. Fruit Sale - Thanks to everyone who has sold fruit so far! Extra forms are available in the band room. Remember that each student is asked to sell five boxes and that all order forms are due on Monday, November 28th.
