Concert Festival - THURSDAY, March 28th
All Wildcat Winds members will be missing the majority of school on Thursday, March 28th as we attend the SCBDA Concert Performance Assessment at Liberty High School in Anderson, SC.

Field trip forms will go home this week and must be turned in by Friday. If you are a parent who is interested in chaperoning this trip, we would love to have you! We have spots available for several chaperones. Please contact Mr. Scott before the week of the event if this interests you.
