Tonight is the AirForce  Band performance.  If you have tickets, PLEASE arrive early.  Because this band is part of a governmental unit, we are asked to overbook the facility.

Wind Ensemble members, please be back onstage, ready to play  no later that 6:30 to tune and start and stop a couple of tunes.

We have a Band o gram running out to Thomas Edison tomorrow after school.  Unless your student is driving themselves, please have the Travel Permit signed and ready to go.  The kids will be back at about 3:15.

Please don’t forget that the game *will* run late tomorrow night.  Students will not need to be picked up until close to 10 PM.  We will stay and watch PH perform and we hope that the families will stay to watch, as well.

Saturday is Band-o-Grams.  We are looking for volunteers to drive and are also hoping you might know somebody that might purchase one. Please contact us at 689-4251 to arrange a time.

It’s a great time to be in the Northern Bands
