Weekend Update 11-8-20
Dear M100 Family,
CONGRATULATIONS once again to the M100 for an outstanding performance last night at the UIL Region 8 Marching competition. You earned the highest rating a band can get - Superior - 1,1,1 !!! We advance on to Area which is on Dec. 5th. We have about 3 weeks of rehearsals until then and lots to clean and more visual elements to add. We are on a roll - let’s keep it up! See link below for videos of the competition! Please continue to engage in masking and distancing practices so that we can all stay healthy and continue to work with one another in person!
