2017-18 School Year Performance Schedule at a Glance

    The purpose of this schedule is to give viewers somewhat of an idea or overview on what is scheduled for the school year.  Each performing group has been or will be handed a schedule (for that particular group) that should be followed.  This schedule is not meant to be used as a daily planner, so to speak.  Don't assume that if it is not on this calendar, it is not scheduled. 

    Please look specifically on the Marching Schedule for the Amherst Marching Comets' Performances.
