Band Room Clean Up/Spruce Up

Big News For The Blue Darter Band! Calling all Guard, Winds, Percussion, and PARENTS!

We get new carpet on September 26th/27th! That in mind, we have to prep the room for their arrival! We will hold a Band Room Clean Up/Spruce session this Saturday morning (9.24.16) from 9 AM – 1 PM. The doors will actually be open around 8 AM and probably will not close until around 2 PM (Hint…hint…) as we want to get everything out of the carpeted areas and prepped in the auditorium for classes on Monday and Tuesday. In addition to this, we want to take the opportunity to move our whiteboard, paint the walls and clean up the sound tiles throughout the room. We will have sign ups going on this week to get teams ready for help. We need both Student AND Adult volunteers to help make this happen!

Cheesecake Arrival Is Tuesday, 9.20!
