On behalf of the Music Staff, Boosters, and Pancake Committee — A huge THANK YOU to all parents and students who volunteered to make our 3rd Music In Our Schools Month Pancake Breakfast another great success!  It is wonderful to have a morning filled with great music, great food, and great people.  We are so fortunate to have such tremendous support for our music programs.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT INSTRUMENT SECURITY:

Recently, there have been a few random incidents of instruments being damaged or moved while in the instrument locker room.  Students and parents are reminded that all band members must have a lock on their instrument locker, as per the Band Handbook (Pg. 8).  This applies to both personal instruments AND school-owned instruments.

The Band Room is a high-traffic area, with so many students moving in and out of the music wing (not all of whom are actually music students), and the locker room often remains open for ease of access. Please take responsibility for your/our equipment by securing it properly.  Locks can be purchased from the Band Office for $5.00.
