We will be having our first concert this week. The concert will be on Thursday night in the theater at Dickerson. Students should report to school at 6:45. The concert will start at 7:00pm. The attire for the concert will be band T-shirt and jeans. If your student did not bring home their T-Shirt last week please have them talk to Mr. Grimes. If your student brought home a shirt that is to big we will be trying to make any changes we can this week. We did not order extra shirts, and we do not have a lot of smaller sizes. We will do what we can. Again, if you have questions please email Mr. Grimes.

7th and 8th Grade

Both grades will be taking playing tests this week to check on the music we will be playing for our concert. We have moved the concert to November 30th because the original date was on the first night of Chanukah. If you have any issues with the date change please let Mr. Grimes or Mr. Brown know.
