NBHSWMB Weekly Sheet 9/24-9/30

posted Sep 25, 2012, 8:55 AM by Eric Drew

Dear Whalers!

Congratulations to everyone on completing last weekend's marathon Saturday.  We can all be very proud of both performances and of the fact that everyone displayed the mental toughness required to make it through such a rigorous day.

This week, we continue our march through the season with several rehearsals, a football game, and our Carwash fundraiser next Sunday, September 30.  Please see the attached Weekly Sheet for all the important times and information.  I am very proud of the band so far this year, and I know that we can accomplish a lot more as the year goes on if we continue displaying the kind of hard work and dedication that everyone has shown so far.

Thanks to all the parents and staff for their hard work in supporting the band, and all the students in it.  As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  ( or 508-997-4511 ext. 2369)

Yours in music,

Mr. Eric Drew
