We hope you all had a nice long weekend.
Last week we had our 2022-2023 Band Placement Auditions for all non-graduating woodwinds and brass. We are so proud of all our students as they’re all making great progress. We will post the results after State MPA. This will allow us to complete the optional auditions for our incoming freshmen, which is this week by appointment.
We are holding our 2022-2023 Marching Pride Percussion Placement auditions this week Tuesday through Thursday from 5:00-7:00pm in the band room. Those results will be posted at the end of the week.
Our first Dancing Cubs rehearsal is Tuesday night in the auditorium. All auxiliary students are expected to attend.
On Friday, Tri-M is having their final meeting of the year in the band room at 2:15pm. All students are to turn in their required service hour records at this meeting.
