If you don't plan to sell, please come by and support our band students. We are still in need of sodas to sell. Please help us out by picking up a twelve pack of sodas and dropping them off in the band hall by the end of practice on Friday. Also, if your student needs volunteer hours for leadership or NHS, we still need help the day of the event starting at 5am and going until 1pm. There will be a sign in sheet for students to log as many hours as they would like to do that day. Have your child come to the cashier's table to see Mrs. Angiono on Saturday.
