Band Bulletin #11: FINAL WEEK

After many weeks of hard work, beginning in the warm days of summer, and continuing through the (still mostly warm) weeks of fall, our 2016 season is almost at its conclusion.

It has been a great season — and we cannot say THANK YOU enough to our students, parents, and staff for their dedication and commitment to making The Marching Bees happen!  

If we do go to Playoffs, we will still begin concert band next Monday 10/31, and no additional evening marching band rehearsals will be added.

SENIORS –  We are so appreciative of your contributions to the band program over the years!  Thankfully, the year is still just beginning… We look forward to your continued leadership in our concert ensembles!

SENIOR PARENTS - Reception @ 5:00 on Stage

  • After the reception, Mrs. Astey will line you up behind the band in reverse alphabetical order, and you will march to the stadium with us. When the senior recognition begins, you and your child will walk across the track during your announcement. At the end, I’ll be there to shake your hand, and a photographer will take your picture.

We look forward to honoring our seniors and senior parents on Friday!
