Attention 1st semester marching band folks. This includes colorguard as well as instrumentalists that were only in the Fall semester class. This is a reminder of the St. Patrick’s day parade practice happening this Thursday, 5th period, in Mr. Foell’s classroom.

So again, this reminder goes out to all 1st semester marching band students, we have a St. Patrick’s Day parade practice this Thursday, March 12th, during 5th period in Mr. Foell’s room.

Calling all students, faculty, and staff. Please continue to bring in your spent markers to be repurposed through the ColorCycle Recycling Program. There is a collection box in the main office. We’ve already saved over 50 pounds of markers from going into our landfills! These markers are being repurposed by using advanced plastic conversion techniques to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles. Let’s keep recycling Decatur!!
