--On December 19th, the Newton-Conover Middle School chorus and 8th grade drumming ensemble will perform their winter concert. 
Drummers will wear a solid color t-shirt, nice jeans with no tears, and nice shoes. No wild colored socks or shoes please. Roll Call is at 6:30 pm and the concert will start at 7:00pm. Both groups will stay for the entire concert,
which should be over within 1 hour.

It’s going to be a great concert. I look forward to seeing you there!!
