From the President

Thanks everyone for your flexibility last week! The makeup uniform night, the Coupon Book pickup, and the highlight of the season so far for the students - the Wando Band night were tremendous successes! The Wando Band put on quite a show for our budding musicians, giving them a taste of what's possible and something to start striving toward. One of my favorite weeks of the year is the one before us - CONCERT WEEK! The 7th and 8th-gradebands have been working overtime to get ready for tomorrow's concert - I can personally guarantee you will enjoy Tuesday's concert, or we'll refund your admission! (Okay, I confess…admission is FREE!) Have a great week everyone, and I'll see you at the Halloween Concert!
