Here is the full schedule for our 9th-12th Grade FHS Band students for the trip to Oscoda on March 10th.
As our 3rd hour exam is scheduled for that day we will leaving during class time so we can arrive in Oscoda in time to listen to other bands perform. Our exam is obviously their performance at Band Festival. This way our band students maximize their festival experience and at the same time will not miss any time from other classes.
We would love to see a ton of parents, grandparents, family, friends and neighbors travel to Oscoda to show their support for the students. The festival is free to watch. If you want to take the kids home with you afterwards that is fine but they will need to sign out.
