The Spring Plant Sale is Done! Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered, sold, and helped support the D90 Bands! We had an incredible year for fundraising, which supports instrument and music purchases, repairs, transportation, and contest fees.  While there were some curveballs with the spring sale, we can’t thank you enough for your flexibility and support!

You’re Invited to attend a great concert next Wednesday, May 3rd, 6:30pm at Carriel! The concert will feature the D90 Symphonic Winds and the OTHS Wind Ensemble. Both will be traveling to U of I to the SuperState Band Festival to Represent O’Fallon. It will be a short concert with some truly awesome music!
