From Mr Ketterer:
This week has been a productive week! We were able to celebrate the completion of our marching band season and continue working towards preparing for the Veterans Day and Holiday Parades. Sign up sheets have been posted for Winter Percussion, and Michael Lombo is already hard at work putting together the Winter Color Guard. If your student has not received any information about either of these groups and is interested in them, please let me know and I will get you the information.
Just a friendly reminder, if you plan on volunteering for competitions or school events you must have a CORI completed. The CORI form can be found on the district website as well as on the MBPA website. Please try to get this done as soon as you can. That way you are covered for the entire school year and can volunteer and help whenever you are able.The MBPA is looking for more volunteers for upcoming events. Please take a look at the link below and see if you would be able to help. All upcoming events are listed on the website. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4caaac28a3f94-20183
