who embody the spirit of greatness by saying,

“Yes I can, and so can you!”

Thanks for your inspiring dedication

and tremendous example to the world.'

Current OMG Happenings

Saturday, April 20th is WGASC Championships. It truly is an honor to be the chosen school for this event and the money we earn through concessions and ticketing benefits ALL of our OMG programs (Orchestra, Band and Color Guard)!

We need YOU to help run the event.

Our Color Guard team will likely be performing at another location in the evening if they make finals, which they are on track to do! That means we will need extra people especially in the afternoon and evening.

Again, we are asking that each family donates 1 case (2 12-packs) of soda, as well as 1 package or batch of Baked Goods individually wrapped.

List for Drink donations by last name:

Please bring to M-1 by Thursday, April 18.

A-E: Dr. Pepper

F-K: Sprite/Squirt

L-N: Coke/Pepsi

O-S: Arizona Fruit Teas

T-Z: Root Beer

 All of our programs have events coming up and we always need volunteers! Every moment of time, every item, and every dollar donated, makes our programs better!

We will also need to set up for the Color Guard Competition the following day, so students should expect to be at school until about 5:30pm on Friday if they are not in drumline.

-Please sign-up to help at this Saturday’s Competition we are hosting at HBHS! It’s WGASC Championships and the proceeds benefit the entire program. Students are expected to sign up during the week and pick at least one shift listed above.
