Important Information for our Final Rehearsal
Students should arrive before 8:00am so we can start on time. (When you come to the High School, proceed to the end of the main road on the High School campus. Turn left at the end and use the entrance closest to this end of the building-Door 50.) This last rehearsal is very important and we will need all the time we can get. Buses will take you back to your school after the rehearsal.
