State MPA - WOW! I can't say it enough. The Symphonic Band had an amazing performance Friday in Tallahassee earning straight superior ratings, all A's on the sheets, and a standing ovation. OUTSTANDING job to all of our students!
NWFL Jazz Festival - This Friday, the MHS Jazz Combo....working on a different name....will be performing at 4:30 Pace Assembly of God for the NWFL Jazz Festival. This is a portion of the jazz band. Please come out and support these students and enjoy a FREE concert of Jazz.
Woodwind Day - This Saturday, MHS will host the first woodwind day. We will have professional instrumentalists from the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra on campus to give a performance and masterclassess for each woodwind instrument.

You do not want to miss out on this final major performance of the year.
Next Fundraiser - We will be officially kicking off our next and final fundraiser of the school year this Thursday. We have already began the process of this last week. You may have received a link to an app or website called MoneyDolly. This is set up similar to the uniform drive earlier in the semester except money earned will go directly to student band fee accounts. We will be selling beef jerky and caramel corn for this one. Students are asked upon setting up accounts to add contacts to their accounts. Once the fundraiser begins on Thursday, those contacts from anywhere in the country can order or donate to the band and the products will ship directly to them. Please keep an eye out on your phones on Thursday.
That is all for now. I hope you have a wonderful week!
