Dear Whalers,

At the bottom of this page you will find the Weekly Sheet for this weekend.  Please look over it and note all the times for Saturday's events.  This Saturday is bound to be a very challenging one with two performances and a rehearsal on the same day.  Please bring plenty of food and drinks to sustain you throughout everything we have to do. Students may also want to bring some money, as they will be able to use the concession stand at the football game and after we perform at Weymouth.

I want to thank everyone for their hard work so far this season.  We are constantly improving and making our show better leading into the competition season that starts this weekend.  Let's continue our great work and try to earn ourselves success in competition this year.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me via email (, or phone. (508-997-4511 x. 2369)

Yours in music,
Mr. Eric Drew
