It's a busy time for many of our students with festival, the musical, rehearsals for the band trip and a junior band concert coming up. Thanks to parents for making sure that students get to where they need to be and for encouraging kids to get to 7:30am rehearsals on time.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Bottle Drive on Saturday morning! We raised $1400 for student accounts and the band program itself. Thanks also go to Stephanie, Dar, Seb, Cody, Cam, Jason, and Josh for performing at the Vancouver Island Parent Conference on Saturday. Well done, folks!
