Weekend Update 10-31-21
Dear M100 Family,
Happy Halloween! Hope everyone is enjoying this weekend. It was a great day yesterday at Area Contest! The M100 had the best performance of their season and though we missed finals by just one place, we hope the students enjoyed the day and felt the rush of a great performance as they came off the field at Kelly Reeves Stadium! We are very proud of all you’ve accomplished this marching season! The marching experience is not over but the marching rehearsal commitment will be greatly reduced. Students need to start bringing concert horns daily. Please read on for more details.
