Hi, hey, hello!
Feb. 19 - Pep Band/CM Winter Guard Performance
This Tuesday is our final pep band game as well as the winter guard's final halftime performance! Congratulations, winter guard, on an awesome first season in a long time; I am so excited that Paige Mull has made it a goal of hers to make this winter guard happen!
Those attending the festival should have been notified and permission slips were due last Wednesday. You can see the itinerary HERE. Eat breakfast before you get to the school, lunch is provided at McKendree, and please bring money for dinner; we will go to Green Mount Crossing in O'Fallon; plenty of options! Make sure you have your instrument, music, PENCIL, water, and all black concert clothes to change into for the concert that evening.
