Our 3rd annual Invitational is just 10 days away and WE NEED YOUR HELP! We now have 10 bands joining us for the competition, which requires a lot of volunteers. There are still spots open in concessions, audience control, parking, practice field monitors & ticket sales, as well as our normal tasks to put our own band on the field for an exhibition performance that night. If you are available to help, please use this link to sign up. Thanks in advance!!

We are still having dinner for the Cadet & Varsity Marching Band students after the parade tonight, however we have decided to move indoors. We will be at the "counter" end of the Commons. Look for signs that say "Marching Band Dinner". If you signed up to bring food, please have it in the Commons at 4:00. Thanks!!
Please note the Athletic Boosters have moved the Family Fest indoors too, so we will be sharing the Commons. But that will offer some options for parents to get food if you so choose. Looking forward to clear skies for the parade & game. See you tonight!!
