Band Uniform Fittings

Calling all parents of music students:  Is your student a new member of band, chorus, or orchestra this year?  Or...returning or new  parents, would you like to volunteer to help our music staff?  There will be a gently used uniform sale and fittings for new uniforms at Panther Palooza on Wednesday, August 22.  New members can purchase gently used uniforms at half the price of new ones.  Sales will be first come, first served, and there is a limited number of these available.  Checks and cash (exact change) will be accepted.  Sign up here to reserve a student fitting at Panther Palooza:  Bandfittings.

Parent volunteers:  please email Mrs. Reddig at cereddig@fcps.edu
