Ready, Set, Vertical Raise!

We have kicked off our social donation campaign! Each student has been asked to gather 20 email addresses of friends and family, write them down on the form in their packet, and return them to Mr. Kennedy or Mr. Santana. On October 5th, a representative from Vertical Raise will visit the band classes and set up the student pages. No need to send any emails now; the Vertical Raise folks will help us with that. More details to follow. Every little bit helps!
