From Mr. Harvison:
Great job last week with the limited amount of time we had for rehearsals.  Hopefully we'll get better weather this week and begin to put the closer drill on the field.  We are getting close to finishing learning the show, however, we are just now beginning to learn how to PERFORM it.  Keep up the hard work and determination and it WILL pay off!  
Very proud of EVERYONE!
 
It's going to be HOT this week!
Please take care of yourselves, eat breakfast before school and drink plenty of WATER!
