Our Nominations Committee is still at work, however, seeking people to serve in Officer and Committee Chair roles for the 2020-21 school year. Stay healthy and stay safe, and please click here for this week’s Band Boosters newsletter.

Thank You, Students!


Thank you for your help with this weekend’s Winter Show, and for making the competitors and spectators feel so welcome. We heard repeatedly how impressed they were with how friendly and helpful our students were. We truly appreciate how you represented our school and band program so well.

Thank you for being responsible and sticking to your shifts and instructions, despite guard directors trying to jump ahead of the clock or telling you that your help was not needed. Thank you for keeping spectators out of the equipment zone and helping confused prop parents and staff find check-in or their units. Thank you for keeping concessions stocked, and for assisting with admissions and door monitoring.

Lastly, thank you for sticking around and supporting your fellow band students by cheering them on during their Color Guard and Drumline performances. Performing in front of the home crowd is a rare treat, and they appreciated all the cheers and and love you showed them.

Band kids truly are the best, and I am so thankful for all of your help with this year’s Winter Show!

Best regards,
Mrs. Long
