Dear Band Family, We have had a busy weekend, but I am reminded of the strength of our band family and the dedication of our students and parents! We had an outstanding day of rehearsal yesterday with the marching band and we had several concert only students and parents step up and help out the band family by working our weekly Bingo session last night! I can’t thank each of you enough! Many parents have accepted new roles in the band program ensuring a wonderful experience for our band students this year! If you still would like to help the band parent organization, we would love and welcome your help at any time.
We have our busiest week to date approaching this week! Please see the below schedule and prepare and plan ahead.
