Sectionals

Sectionals are on a rotating basis of A, B, C lunches. D may be available with advance notice. This monthly calendar is submitted to students, faculty and families in advance. Make ups are always allowed with no grade penalties as long as they are made up before the close of each marking period. After school choir members are also required to attend these sectionals as they do not receive enough rehearsal time as it is.
