After Holiday Reminders!

Hi NIHS Raider Band! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a happy new year! Just a couple reminders as we head back to school next week!
1. All County Recorded auditions will take place next week. They must be finished by Friday January 5 at 5 PM. So those of you who are ready to go early (Wed/Thur) please let me know!
2. All District Auditions are January 6 at Central Davidson Middle and High School. Students auditioning (not required, select students) will receive detailed information on Wednesday when returning to school.
3. We still have some students that have still not returned Krispy Kreme fundraiser cards. If you have those please plan on returning those as soon as we return to school!
On another note: do you think you might want to do music after high school? Appalachian State University has some guidelines on what you should be doing now to prepare for studying music in college. Take a look!

Competition at East Surry and Newton Conover

Good Afternoon! This weekend we travel to East Surry in the morning and Newton Conover in the afternoon! Please note that we are running two “separate” schedules this weekend. Our pit crew will need to be ahead of us this weekend in order to make sure the students have time to eat. If you are on the pit crew please make sure to follow that schedule. Also there will be a brief meeting for pit crew at 9:30 on Saturday morning. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all this weekend! The document below is the information for this weekend.
