First and foremost – congratulations to the Marching Phantoms on their first place performance Saturday night! This is the last week of the season for the marching band, and they are currently ranked in the TOP 5 for their division heading into championships.
We’d like to invite all of the students who aren’t in the marching band (but ARE in the band program!) to come out Thursday night, 8:00pm to Washington Field to see what they’ve been doing. As we’ve been preparing for a concert next week, many of your peers have been pulling double duty. And…there will be cookies and milk afterwards! 🙂 (OK, well maybe cookies and hot chocolate).
The first quarter ended last week: Thank you to all of you for staying on top of completing the SmartMusic assignments for this quarter. Everything should be entered and submitted into Skyward by now. Remember – the lowest grade will always be dropped when averaging for the quarter! 🙂
IMPORTANT UPCOMING EVENTS:
Phantom Band Booster Meeting: Tuesday night, 11/8, 6pm in the HS Band Room.
