As such, there will be no third quarter break. Students should bring snacks for the ride home, and comp band students will be given a break to eat when we return to East.
Competition Day: This weekend’s competition is at Brick Memorial HS, located at 2001 Lanes Mill Rd in Brick Township. Times are to the left. Students will be given a break after our morning rehearsal to eat/prepare for the football game, and will be given a break to eat/prepare for the competition after we arrive back at East. After we perform at Brick Memorial, students will change into jeans and show shirts – these will need to be brought to the competition! Students should also bring food/money to purchase food for after our performance.
