First day – WHAT DO I NEED

It’s the FIRST DAY!!  It’s exciting and crazy, but please don’t forget that we also have our first marching band practice!

NEED TO BRING TO SCHOOL:  instrument, music, practice clothes (either change into or wear), and camelbak.  Practice is from 3:30 to 6:30pm – YOU MUST HAVE A RIDE HOME!  Be hydrated (that means drink lots of water, not coke!) and if you haven’t purchased from Charms, bring a snack for after school.  You will be glad you did!

If you have any questions, ASK!

LET’S GO MWB!
