FOOD CHANGES FOR PLAYOFFS
Due to the fact that we are now ‘out of budget’ on food expenses and low on pledges, we will be charging for dinner on Friday nights until playoffs are over. Every week, we will post what we are serving and the charge. Please make sure your child has money to eat on Fridays or brings a meal. Thank you!
This Friday is Papa John’s pizza – $2 per student
Mr. Atchley will be giving “Nerves Classes” on 11/6, 11/13. And 11/27, from 3-5pm. If your student is trying out for Mid-state, they need to attend.
Tryouts will be held on Saturday, December 2 for 11th and 12th graders and
Saturday, December 9 for 9th and 10th graders.
We are still $70,000+ behind on pledge commitments for this marching season! Please continue to make your pledge donations throughout the school year as we will have expenses through May. We need and appreciate your donations to help make the band fiscally responsible.
