PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES (THIS WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY): Please contact us if you need to set up a conference time.
OPTIONAL U.S. NAVY BAND CONCERT: Parents who have requested tickets for the U.S. Navy Band concert that is this Thursday - tickets were sent home with your child last week.

UPCOMING BAND AUDITIONS: Just a brief reminder that after Spring Break, we will begin hearing auditions for Symphonic Band. All 6th & 7th grade students will be completing the audition, as this is also counted as a part of their grade. Please encourage your son/daughter to be practicing their audition music at home. We are available to help during lunch time any day and also after school today and Monday, April 3.
