There are 28 days until the 2018 Rose Parade. Rose Parade fun fact of the week: Marching Bands are required to be playing for MOST of the Rose Parade with very little time to rest.

During marching season, we only send Thunder Band News to marching students and their parents. This helps prevent inundating non-marching students and parents with information that they do not need. After marching season is over, we transition to sending the email to all students and parents. We will still have quite a bit of information about marching band up until the Rose Parade, so this transition will happen later this year.

Since this issue contains information about Mr. Mangelson’s announcement of his upcoming school change, this is going to all students and parents.

We have also found that our student records gradually get out of date, resulting in some students and parents who have graduated or moved not being removed from the distribution list. If this applies to you, please reply to this email so that we can remove you from the list.
