 ****Reminder that concert attire is black on bottom/white on top.  Please let Miss Schmitt know if you have a concern.  We have a few things in the Band Room that might help you.  If families have found pants/black shoes to be in good condition but outgrown, feel free to send them in for our collection. This also applies to Marching Band - black pants, black socks & black shoes, preferably sneakers and/or comfortable shoes, are mandatory.  Please do not wait until the last minute, you may not find what you want.****
