Look for details regarding a new fundraiser to come home soon. We need to get new art work onto our trailers. If you know of any businesses who might be interested in this venture, please have them contact a board member.
Please check the band calendar frequently for changes/additions to the kids schedule. May is very busy for concerts and auditions. As a reminder work is never an excuse for a student to miss a band event. The calendar is published well in advance to allow for students to plan accordingly. A lot of next years calendars is already being published. Start writing down those dates.
I hope you all have an awesome week.
