All right Carson High, we’ve already had our Lip Sync auditions and I have to say this year’s groups are pretty awesome. If you don’t believe me, go see for yourself.

You can buy your tickets for the Lip Sync before school, during nutrition, at lunch or after school in the Student Finance Office. Tickets are $3 with your SBC sticker and $4 without, up until the day of the Lip Sync. Tickets will go up to $5 at the door on Oct. 14 at the Community Center.

If you participate in this month’s Socktober and bring a new set of socks to donate at the door, your ticket price will be discounted to $3.
