Pep Rally: you will wear your red top and navy shorts-tryout stuff.  We will talk about hair on Thursday.
Please be at practice on Thursday!  
Please re-read the TexAnns' Constitution.  Lots of useful information there.  Here is one...If you are not at practice on Tuesday, you do not dance at the next performance.  It is so hard to do formations when members are missing.  And we could make changes and you would miss it.  If you have an emergency and  cannot make practice you must email or call me.
