Final Competition on Saturday!

Great job last Friday night at the game vs. Pebblebrook. We brought tons of spirit for our Trojans and cheered them to another exciting win!

This is a critical week for our marching band as we make final preparations for our final competition of the season. I hope that everyone returns rested from the break as we will need everyone ready to keep climbing the mountain. We have had a great season thus far, let’s finish strong! At the bottom of the page are some great photos from the LoC. Thank you again for your combined efforts to make our band competition such a success! We have attended many other contests, and I am extremely proud of how ours is run. We couldn’t do it without you!

Amazon • 2 Ways to Help • Snacks Needed

THANK YOU so much to our parents and friends who have ordered items from our Amazon Wishlist! The snacks for the away games, Gadsden and South Paulding were all provided from generous donations from our Amazon Wishlist. If you are able and willing to assist by purchasing items from the wishlist it helps both monetarily and assist us with our time since it removes the need for someone to go out and purchase the items. If you see items on our list that you can find less expensive elsewhere and would rather shop for them, we have a booster storage room where we can store donated snacks. Your generosity makes a difference and we are very appreciative. THANK YOU!!!!
