I am SO proud of our students who took part in the 3rd Annual Colquitz/Spectrum Sleepover. They were such fantastic leaders, motivators and delegates of our band program and school. We didn't run out of food and sleeping through another alarm has become... tradition?
For those who are new to Spectrum, this is Exam week and as per tradition, we exercise "Quiet Week" whereby rehearsals are changed or postponed to support our students efforts to complete their final exams for semester one. Please read all of the information below carefully.
