Weekly Update Sept 3 – 6

REMINDERS:Rehearsals begin at 6:45 am each morning! We have had many students dropped off right at 6:45 am. If a student needs help finding a ride, they are encouraged to check with their section leaders first.

ALL students must have their water bottle at every rehearsal. This is a matter of safety for all involved! Any student who doesn’t have water will be sent off of the field to take care of it before they are allowed to join our rehearsal.
