Band Bulletin #1: 8/12-8/18

Welcome to the first of many upcoming weekly bulletins throughout the 2018 Marching Season!  Please read carefully, as each week has many specific considerations/updates/announcements, etc.

THANK YOU for a great band camp, and a very positive start to our season!  We were very appreciative to how open our students were to trying new things and very proud of how much we accomplished together. It is only the beginning… LET’S KEEP IT UP!
