Do to a scheduling conflict, students will be eating in the cafeteria the day of band assessment. We do not need help with bag lunches. We will leave for Singletary around 11:15AM on March 17, 2014.

I am working on getting directions and a specific place to park so that you are not ticketed. Please ask your child for this information. I gave it out on Thursday and Friday of this week.

Students will need a white short sleeved polo shirt, kakhi pants, dark belt, dark socks and dark shoes. No tennis shoes. (Please let me know this week if you need help with clothing)

The kids have been working hard and I am looking forward to their performance.
