Tickets were handed out in class.  Please see your student for tickets.  As a reminder, the sale is on February 18th, the same day as one of our games. More tickets can be obtained from Mr. Stinson in the band office.

Finally, five-pound bags will be available for $25.00 presale, and $30.00 at the door. For every five-pound bag sold, $5 will go to the student's trip account.
