From the President

Lots coming up in the next two weeks, so pay close attention - we have an 8th grade after school rehearsal, a 7th grade AM rehearsal next week, and it's almost time for the spring concert! Before that, I must say WOW for all the books donated! The Cario Band family donated 22 boxes and 7 bags full of books to the Book Angels group - I think that's a record! Bravo to all of you that participated!

Beach Bash -
June 2

The Beach Bash is our annual celebration held on the last day of school. This year CCSD added an extra half-day of school on Monday June 5, but we are keeping the Beach Bash on June 2 as previously scheduled. It will be at the Isle of Palms County Park from 2:00-5:00 PM. Cost is $7 per person. An information flyer will come home this week with your musician, and I'll have it posted on our website on the FORMS page. A volunteer sign up link will come via email later in the week, so look for that. The deadline to pay is May 29, so act quickly!
