Ladies, Thanks to nearly everyone for choosing appropriate khaki shorts for our performances. However, we did have three students that need to revisit that fingertip length policy. If you think you (or your daughter) might be one of those, please roll down those cuffs or get longer shorts for Friday. Thank you!
HAIR DYE ALERT: We will soon be wearing our marching uniforms with the white jackets. If your hair color might run into that white jacket if you are caught in the rain.....please think about how to prevent that from happening.
