                    *Parents:  we know it’s a long ride, but it would be great to have friendly faces in the stands for our last competition!  Please carpool and join us or hop on a bus and help out!  The address for Sandwich High School is 515 Lions Rd, Sandwich, IL 60548.  We typically do not follow the tollway directions that Google Maps provides.  If you’d like our “back roads” directions, send us an email.

                    *If you did not yet complete the Stagg Notes assignment, you have to change quickly in order to see ALL of the remaining bands beginning at 4:30.  You will also have to add a self-reflection on our own performance since there are not enough bands left to complete the full assignment.  Please see Mr. or Mrs. Kazin if you have any questions.  If you already completed the Stagg Notes assignment, you can just sit and enjoy the show.
