On Wednesday March 20, we are hosting the St. Tammany Parish Public Schools Large Ensemble Band Festival.

This festival will begin around 9 am and will finish around 2:45 pm. Please email me back and let me know what hours you can help out. All participating students must wear their black band uniform to school that day. This includes SOLID black shoes.
