It is a good time for everyone to double check uniform parts and pieces.  All guys need to have a white collared dress shirt, black socks and black dress shoes.  All girls need to have black dress shoes to wear with the concert dress.  Our concert is Tuesday, Dec. 19, so please take care of these uniform needs well in advance (if you need my  help with this, this week would be a good time to ask:).
