For auditioning students:
- Don't wear clothing that identifies you as a Martin student.  
- Anonymity is key!!!  Once you check in, DO NOT TELL ANYONE YOUR LETTER.  
- Be at your room at least 10 minutes before your group is scheduled to go in.
- Help out the parents by keeping the hallways quiet.
For parents who are helping out:
- Please wear your Martin polo
- If you have any questions or potential problems, please find Mr. McCann in the contest office (teacher lounge at the end of the hall, south of the band room).

- Don't forget...if you are not going to be here for the potential post-Thanksgiving playoff game, we need to know ASAP so we can plan accordingly.
That's all for now.  Don't forget to sell your Mac's At Martin tickets and keep looking for donations to the silent auction!!
