Jazz band performs for open house on Tuesday 27th

The jazz band will perform during the pre-meeting activities. We start at 6 in the gym. Regular band practice until 5:30 then they go change and play.



Our uniforms were sent to the dry cleaners on Monday and will be returning on Thursday afternoon. If you can make it, we will be reassembling them while the band has practice from 3:15- 5:30. If we don't finish them, which we probably won't, we will be meeting again on Friday morn at 10:00 to finish. If you can come at either of those times for any amount of time, please try to help us. The uniforms were completely dismantled and all 166 of them have to be put back together. We have a game Friday night and then competition on Saturday and we want to look (and smell) good. Our volunteers for this Friday are Liz Scibetta, Sallie Barham, and Sandy Tucker. We have no volunteers for Saturday so please consider helping us when we return to the school. Thanks again, Doreen Thomas


Date change please make a note

The varsity football game with Mountain Brook will be played on Thursday October 6 @ 7 PM at Mountain Brook's Spartan Stadium
