Needed: A Few Parents To Help Sell T-Shirts At The All County Concert Tomorrow

The SCHS Band will be selling t-shirts, plaques and DVDs at the All County concert tomorrow from 9 am to 1 pm. We often rotate around so parents don’t miss their children performing. If you have any availability to help during this time (at the school) please respond to this e-mail or contact Danny Deshler. This is an opportunity for us to earn some extra money for the band.
