Band Update – 8/7/18


We had several (15!!!!) no call, no show absences for rehearsal this evening.
As a reminder, being no call, no show to a rehearsal will result in a 0 in the gradebook for that event, and prevent your student from performing that week – whether it’s a football game or competition. We start performances with the Red & Gray Scrimmage next week! Please let us know if your student needs to miss. Thank you!
