Dear Parents,

We have a time change for Sunday’s (May 17th) band spring concert. Due to baseball award ceremonies at 2:00 pm, I will be moving the concert up to 1:30pm to give those kids time to attend both the concert and their ceremony.

Band Students need to be at the high school band hall at 1:15pm.

Thank you for your support!

Mr. Ruiz
