Weekend Update 4/30/2023
Dear M100 Family,
We are approaching the final month of our school year! There is a LOT of important information in this update, please be sure to read through everything! Keep pushing to the end! Here is your weekend update!
NEW INFORMATION AND UPDATES
5/1 RESCHEDULED DRUM MAJOR AUDITIONS - The drum major auditions will be held tomorrow, Monday, May 1st. Since we needed to reschedule the auditions and there may be students that are unable to meet after school, we will be providing the option to audition either after school or in class tomorrow. Since this will affect the groups for the "Met In and Out" portion of the audition, this will now be done INDIVIDUALLY instead of in groups. Our plan is to announce the full leadership team after the conclusion of all auditions.
