[PLEASE READ BELOW FOR A FEW SCHEDULE CHANGES]
Congratulations again to the Vikings for their third consecutive 5A wins for both band and color guard, plus a second place in percussion at Hart Rampage!
This is going to be a busy week. First we have this tournament on Thursday, then we have another on Saturday — there will be a separate post about that one.
Friday, there will be NO 7 am rehearsal. For the evening rehearsal (5-8 pm), please wear your navy blue “retro”/football shirt, so you can get your royal blue practice shirt in the wash before Saturday’s comp.
Thursday, students will only miss 6th period, NOT 5th period, as previously stated. Please see Thursday’s itinerary, plus packing list and performance times, at this link.
