Band Notes 22/23

January 9 to 15

Happy Monday morning!


We're off and running in 2023 and opened with a busy first week back! Thank you soooo much to all the students that played at our basketball games. I was sharing with the students the numerous community members, coaches, opposing-team parents, etc. that spoke with me about how great the band sounded and raved about the spirit they bring to the games. GREAT WORK!
