Students must arrive to school in COMPLETE UNIFORM. This is STATE FESTIVAL, and the uniform must be on point. All BLACK shoes, BLACK slacks/school uniform pants, BLACK socks. This is the big leagues, and we need to look our best. See the UNIFORM page if you have questions.
IF you haven't turned in your permission forms (SHAME!) and $10.50 for dinner yet, Mr. Martin needs them BEFORE SCHOOL. No permission, no State.
If you are driving separately, plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the performance times below. The warm up time is 15 minutes before the performance time. If you are coming separately, you only have to be there for your own group, and aren't required to stay for dinner, of course.
There is LIMITED bus space - 129 kids, 2 busses, plus Mr. Martin and a few chaperones. We really can't accommodate more, but consider carpooling with other parents to Holt. The event is free and open to the public.
On the bus, students can bring a small bag (please, no backpacks - it will be crowded!) and phones and jackets are allowed. However, students must leave their phones on the bus at Holt HS. They will be there when we are done singing, and students can have them during dinner.

MUDHENS INFO For Sunday, May 5
Cardinals and Men going to the Mudhens game must get any final ticket sales to Mr. Martin before school Thursday. I have to order the tickets via credit card ahead of the game. DO NOT order tickets on your own - get them through me! We need a block of at least 75 seats, and the cost is only $13, a better price than you can get anywhere else.
We leave for the game Sunday at 11am, return at about 5, depending when the game ends. Game starts at 1pm, and we will sing just before it. Students wear uniforms to the game (they can change after singing if they like). Bring money to purchase lunch after we sing, during the game, a variety of food is offered at pretty reasonable prices.
CONTACT Mr. Martin if you can't find the answer to your question here.
