Hard to believe, but the last week of marching band is here…

It was another 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!  We look forward to making great music together in our concert ensembles very soon.

Here is the video from our final performance of the “American Tribute” show this past Friday.  Thank you for presenting this meaningful show.  Many thanks to Brian Wolf for recording our shows this season!
