To that end, things may look different this year, but we will still be out there making music as always and improving every day, in the safest way possible.

The Band Boosters would like to thank the ROTC for all their help in the successful Alumni Band night.

Also, all band members please bring a case of water and each of the following to the bandroom one day this week for our band competition this Saturday at Soddy Daisy:

9th grade – ham or turkey lunch meat

10th grade – bread or sliced cheese

11th grade – chips or snacks
