Band Parents, Students, and Community Members
We are really looking forward to performing for you at the annual MNHS Band Pasta Dinner/Silent Auction and Concert with our 8th graders!!
There is a slight possibility that the event could be postponed due to weather conditions. As of right now, we are still on. If anything changes, it will be posted to the website as soon as possible. I made a couple of slight alterations to the performance schedule below. Students should wear jeans and this year's band shirt to perform. All students are expected to help with set up and clean up at the end so that it takes very little time.Fri. Feb. 7 BAND PASTA DINNER/Silent Auction/8th Grade Concert--MNHS Cafeteria
