Friends & Family Show – Thursday!

Winter Friends & Family Show
Thursday, March 28th
7:30pm – South Gym

This Thursday is our Friends & Family Show. The 7/8 Winter Drumline, 9-12 Winter Drumline, and Winter Guard will perform their shows!

Please invite everyone you know… This is our only “home” performance and your students have really worked hard to put these shows together! Please have your students invite their teachers… Many staff at the high school have no idea what a Winter Guard or Winter Drumline show is – This is a great time to let them know!

These are full performances in full attire… just as in a competition. There is a possibility that snacks may be served following the performances…

Hope to see you there!

Drumline & Color Guard – Payments Due

Just a friendly reminder that all payments for 7/8 Drumline ($50), 9-12 Winter Drumline ($500), and Winter Guard ($600 season & $1300 Dayton trip) are now due.
