Weekend Update 3-1-20

Dear M100 Families, Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Congratulations to our Winter Guard for another impressive day of performances yesterday at the TCGC Contest at Johnson High School. Ratings for the groups (in each of their respective groups): C group-7th, JV-5th, Varsity-3rd. Their next show is March 7 at Cedar Ridge HS in Round Rock, TX. Come out and support our Guard! They are awesome! For the Band – we have a busy week ahead and then Spring Break! Parents – you should be hearing your child practicing their UIL Concert Band music at least 30 minutes a day! Our UIL evaluation is in April but there are so many interruptions to our rehearsals (Spring Break, testing, etc.). Students must put in their own practice time for us to be successful! Thank you for your support! Please also look at our band calendar – camps/events/contests posted for this semester, summer, and next Fall.
