Festival Week!

I hope that everyone had a great long weekend! Our Winter Guard had a terrific showing this weekend in SAPA competition at Ola HS.  Our JV team improved by 20 points and finished 3rd in their class and our Varsity finished 2nd!  Our teams are working very hard representing our program with class!

This week our concert bands travel on Thursday to Rome High School for Large Group Performance Evaluations (Festival).  The concerts are open to the public and free.  If you are able to be in the audience we would appreciate your support!  On Friday we have our student meeting about the trip to NYC!  This is a mandatory meeting for all traveling students – we look forward to seeing everyone on Friday.
