Well, it’s come down to this. We say goodbye to a WONDERFUL Senior Class and begin working on next fall. Here are the remaining bits of info for this year:
Music Awards Ceremony
Tuesday, May 9th at 6pm in the PAC.
All students who filled out the lettering sheet online will have something presented to them. Students should dress professionally and come for a night of celebration.
Drum Major Auditions
Several students have submitted applications for this position. The plan is to have the auditions on Tuesday, May 16th, during Titan Time and 4th Hour.
All Percussionists will be auditioning for placement in next year’s drumline. This will take place on Monday, May 15th between 4:30 and 6:30pm. Students will be randomly assigned a 5-7 minute audition slot. They have had the audition material since early March.
If you are a member of next year’s band, you will be receiving updates on that mailing list from this point forward.
Thank you to all of you for allowing Mr. Harrel and I the opportunity to work with your fine sons and daughters. We are blessed!
