Thank you to all the parents who helped this Saturday with lunch and sewing flags! This week we will need your help with concessions at the Homecoming Football Game, helping out with props for the football game performance, and helping out on Saturday with lunch and at the competition with props and equipment. Remember to wear your 2017 field show t-shirt to represent Gahr! You can also purchase a Gahr Marching Gladiators hoodie for $35 to wear at the field show competitions in the stands.
