We begin our BBQ ticket sales this week. All students will receive a packet. Turn in is on April 21. We are also selling raffle tickets to be drawn during the performance.

Raffle Items Needed • We draw the winners on Facebook Live and will recognize the sponsors. Gift cards to businesses make great items. If you have connections with local businesses, please ask if they have an item we can use in our raffle. The grand prize is $500, but having multiple chances to win can help sell the tickets and is a way to support our local businesses. Thank you for your help with this important fundraiser!

Senior Spotlight • Link Fixed

Apparently, we shared a “prefill” link? Not sure how that happened, but we have corrected it. QR Code and New Link works. We would like to recognize our seniors and their future plans! Parents/students, please fill out the form here ASAP to help us recognize our amazing seniors!

Waiting List for the NY Trip

There are a few registrations pending, but with the current registrations and pending ones, we are at 130 travelers exactly. If you haven’t signed up, you are welcome to register but you might be added to a waiting list and you will be notified when a spot opens up. Visit this website for more information about the trip.

Snacks still needed for Winterguard

During the fall we were blessed by donations for our marching band! During the winter season we will be traveling with our Winterguard and feeding them during long rehearsals. Thank you so much for your support of all of our students!
