We Need Your Old Marching Shoes
Marching band season is over, but we are still working behind the scenes for next year...if you have any old marching band shoes that no longer fit, please consider donating them to the uniform trailer instead of a charity. We often allow students to borrow these used shoes when they forget theirs at a tournament.

Please contact Mary Ellen Dufva at markandme94@gmail.com if you have any questions.
