Gopher Hill Festival Prep

The Gopher Hill Festival is QUICKLY approaching and we are working hard in our classes to ensure each class has an exciting piece to add to our performance.

Remember we want EVERY student to participate in the show and EVERY student needs to purchase a Gopher Hill tee.  The cost is $15 plus tax if you pre-order by Friday, 9/21.  After that, the cost will be $20 plus tax.

Parents, it would be wonderful if you would also purchase and wear a shirt to show support for our school.

This is the design we have chosen for this year.  You can choose either light ash gray or dark heather gray.  (The sample shown is dark heather gray.)  Be sure to mark your size and color choice on the order form!  Remember you must order by 9/21 or the price will go up!


Every year we look forward to performing for the crowds at the annual Gopher Hill Festival and this year we have some great things planned.  We would like ALL students (from Hampton & Ridgeland) to join us in this demo!   Over the next several weeks, we will be working on various pieces of the performance during our normal class times.  We also have a practice walk-through planned for Friday, Oct. 5th at 5:30.   We require everyone who is participating in the demo to purchase the special Gopher Hill t-shirt.  The deadline for orders is 9/18.  Parents and family members are encouraged to also purchase a t-shirt to show your support for our students!  The cost of the tees is only $15 plus tax.
