Hello everyone!

We are moving fast toward our first football game this Friday night, and I will be sending out info about next week's away game very soon. Right now here are some things you need to know:

1) We will have a booster meeting September 1st at 6:30 pm in the SGCHS Band Room, and will continue to have a meeting the first Thursday of every month for the rest of the year. At this meeting we will kickoff a couple of fundraisers and learn about some more as we prepare to raise money not only for the band account, but for the New York Trip as well.

2) The students need to report to the band room this Friday at 6:15, wearing Band T-shirts, Khaki shorts, tennis shoes, and no hats. The full itinerary is below.
