    Hey Parents/Students,

     This is another reminder about our pre UIL contest this Thursday night at 6pm.  Your student will need to bring his/her uniform to school on Thursday.  

    We will be leaving school at 5:15pm and you will need to pick your student up from Porter HS at 7:30pm.

     Also, we are not able to provide dinner for them this night, so please plan on having them bring a sack lunch or you may bring them something to eat after school.  They will have from 4pm-5pm to eat and change into their formal attire.  

    Parents you are absolutely encouraged to come and watch our performance onstage and the sightreading portion.  We do ask if you have small children, that you would not bring them into the sightreading room.  

     Please email me at if you have any questions.
