It is time to start thinking about IHSA Solo & Ensemble! We will be hosting Solo & Ensemble on Saturday, March 2, here at AHS. We have been discussing in class, but students need to get in their fees ASAP. Solos are $8, Ensembles are $15 (divided among the participants). Please ask your kiddo what they’re doing for solo & ensemble and send it in! Checks can be made payable to Alton High. Thanks!

We will need all kinds of parent help that day as well! Please mark your calendar – more information will be coming!

Here we go! As always, please let us know if we can help. Have a great week!
