For Students in 8th-12th Grade Band:

Uniforms Reminder - Please turn in the dry cleaning payment of $25.00 as soon as possible.  We had an amazing team of boosters fit the uniforms and now the bill must be paid.  The dry cleaning form was attached as part of the handbook that students brought home on the first day of school.
