Post date: Aug 31, 2010 7:03:49 PM

Greetings, all! I hope that you and your students have had a GREAT "back-to-school" experience! I am happy to already see some of our younger members looking up to our seasoned vets for leadership both on the field and in the classroom! I am once again proud to say that we have a truly special group of students in our band program!

This week:

Rehearsal Schedule

> This week marks the END of our Summer Rehearsal Schedule. Beginning next week, we will be following the Fall Rehearsal and Performance Schedule. I have attached the most updated version to this email - please also note that our traditional Champs Week Schedule has been included.

Order forms were sent home last week - for extras, please see Mrs. Gumble at the band office. REMINDER - envelopes (with payment) are to be presented to Mr. Kelly on Thursday!
