District Honor Band • February 14 – 16
Please congratulate our students who have been invited to participate in the GMEA District VII Honor Band. They earned this opportunity by auditioning in December. Congratulations to: Maggie Rowland, Savannah Richie, Asha Brown, Katie Hoberg, Andrew Stagliano, Austin Schumann, Dale Drummond, Josh Hansen, Jordan Mullenix, Brianna Colquitt, Ben Bradley, Lainey Driver, Taylor Berry, Eli Nunez, and Kelley Ozier.
Students will travel with Mr. Carr, Mr. Bright, and Ms. Menendez to Ringgold and stay at the Spring Hill Suites in Ringgold, GA. Hotel cost is $70.00 and includes breakfast each morning. Students will also need money for lunch and dinner each night. Download an itinerary here. So that we can send the bus home early and not require our bus driver to remain through the concerts we ask our parents to meet the students after their final rehearsal on Saturday.
Just as clarification: the Junior High Students are rehearsing at Ringgold HS and our students are rehearsing at the Heritage High School. (This is opposite from the past couple of years). The concerts will still take place at Ringgold HS.
