8th Grade Night with the WGHS Band - October 30th

All Rogers Band 8th grade students have the Walnut Grove Band 8th Grade Night coming up on October 30th. Due to the limited HS football schedule we never had a chance to join in for Friday night lights so this will give the 8th graders a chance to be on the field in Children’s Health Stadium. It will be a night of music making and fun for all incoming Walnut Grove freshmen. Students will be fed dinner at the event, and get multiple performance/learning opportunities with Walnut Grove, along with getting to march and play on the football field. More details to come next week!
