Pep Band & Concessions Wrap Up

  • Thank you for a very successful basketball pep band and concession stand sales season! Our concessions team set an all-time record in sales and we couldn’t have done it without the incredible support of our boosters. Special thanks to Aaron and Carrie Roberts, Crystal Harris, and everyone who volunteered this year.
  • Next year we need a new team to step up and run the basketball concessions. It’s a very important fundraiser and we don’t want to lose it. Please contact Mr. Toepfer or Carrie Roberts if you are interested in taking over. caroberts1795@gmail.com
  • It is very likely we will not host any more basketball games, but we will know this weekend if either team will host a substate game or travel to state. If we travel to state, we will select students based on instrument needs and regular season attendance.

Pre-Festival Concert Wednesday, March 1st 2023 – 7pm

  • Join us Wednesday 3/1 for an informal ‘pre-contest’ concert featuring both jazz bands and both concert bands.
  • Attire is casual for students. We simply want another opportunity to perform and show the parents what we’ve been working on
  • Call time: 6:30 for all groups
