Band Bulletin #11 – FINAL WEEK!

Well, we have made it to the final week of marching band!  After all of the hard work invested at Band Camp, and throughout the subsequent days and weeks, our 2015 season is almost at its conclusion.  We cannot say THANK YOU enough to our students, parents, and staff for their dedication to making the “Marching Bees experience” possible!  

If our season does extend into PLAYOFFS, we will still begin concert band on November 2nd, and no additional evening marching band rehearsals will be added.  Please keep November 6-7 & 13-14 flexible on your calendars (playoff games can be on either Fridays or Saturdays).  As soon as we receive any information, we will communicate it to you.

Our Final Week is a busy one……
