Parents and Students,

      We had a terrific trip to Dallas! Thank you very much to all of our parent chaperones (JP Bowdoin, Erica Manteufel, Farley Gutierrez, Marti Johns, Melissa Flynn, Robbie Claspell, Connie Burt, Cinamon Gentry, Stefani Michaud, and our support crew Steve and Amy Allen) for taking time out of their regular schedules to join us and make sure that our students were safe and had a good trip! A special thank you to Mr. Bowdoin for all the work and planning he did. I truly appreciate his time and energy, as well as the booster board members for communicating with him on various aspects of the trip.

     We encountered some rain, but a great back up plan was put in place and everyone was safe and entertained. The students were wonderful. We hope in addition to having fun, they learned something from attending our clinic, attending the Dallas Symphony concert, and going to the Sixth Floor Museum.

     As we were preparing for the last few weeks of school, keep in mind the following:

     - Lettering forms are due on the 18th of this month (THIS

In addition to a wonderful meal, band letters and bars will be handed out to those who applied and met the requirements.
