Band Update – 2/25/16

Hello! Sorry for the delayed update this week:

A note about Dinner Auction:
M100 parents.
I am looking for parents to coordinate section baskets for the upcoming ABOB dinner auction.
You will need to decide on a theme and then collect donations from the section you represent.
Please help our students and ABOB support them during marching season and all year long.
Please email me at or call/text 560-3823.
