Dear High School Parents,
Your students should have been informing you of our upcoming events but here are some specifics that I am sure they did not all get home to you.
Farwell High School Band will be traveling to Oscoda to take part in District Band and Orchestra Festival on March 10. This is a required trip and we do expect all 9-12 grade band students to take part in this Festival.
We do want the band to look great so make sure your child has the required black socks/shoes and uniform. If any of this is an issue please call Mr. Shimmons and we will work it out.
