Ironwood Competition
Ironwood Competition Itinerary - here

Call time is 7am. Your student should eat breakfast before they arrive, but since call time is early that might not happen, so if any parents would like to bring bagels and cream cheese, muffins, yogurt, pre-packaged apple slices or other portable/easy breakfast items the kids would appreciate it. Please non-messy items, then we can bring them on the bus!

We perform at 11:45am. Awards are at 2:15. Then we will be going to Mama Pizza. Mrs. Mireau has the phone number on the itinerary,please consider and encourage your student to pre-order, especially if they are going to purchase an entire pizza. It will cut down on the wait time considerably. Please be sure and check out their menu online. Thank you!
