Orchestra, Make a Note: Feb. 27 – March 3

Here comes spring and the flurry of activities that always seems to make the last 3 months of school fly by!
Alton H.S. is hosting the IHSA Solo & Ensemble Contest this Saturday.  We need some parents to help out in the concessions area (several are already signed up).  Please let me know if you are able to help out for a couple hours.  Concessions start at 7am and finish up around 2:00.  It’s always a fun crew!  Thank you!
