Registration for the event is available over email.

Marching Band

Due to rain, the marching band did not compete at the Northern Highlands Regional High School competition scheduled for Saturday, October 14. According to marching band director Amy Wilcox, the band withdrew for the safety of students, as their performance heavily involves technology.
