Students will arrive at the middle school at 7:00am to unload the truck and prepare for performances beginning at 7:50am. At the conclusion of these performances, we will load the truck, and students will go to their class in the middle school or back to the high school(a bus will be provided for those students needing a ride back to the high school). This is a wonderful recruiting tool for marching band, winterguard, and indoor drumline. HIgh school students will be receiving a field trip form for this event this week. It will need filled out and turned into the High School main office.

Let’s have a fantastic WGI Week!
