RETURN SENIOR YARD SIGNS
It's hard to believe another class of marching band seniors are graduating! That means that it is almost time to return your senior sign so that they can be repainted for the next group of seniors. Signs can be returned to the band room during the first two weeks of summer band rehearsals in July. If this is not convenient, you can contact Becky Kuech by phone at 937-879-0313 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to return your sign. Please try to return your sign by the end of July, as work on the 2015-2016 signs will begin by the first of August.
