From The Director 11-14-2022
First of all, there IS a parents meeting at 6:30 in the Band Room tonight.
Thank you to those who came out to enjoy watching the Bands of America Competition. I wish you could have all been there to see what we are aspiring to because as far as marching band goes. It obviously will take time, numbers, and a lot of hard work, but I know we can do it.
Thank you also to Jim Miller for donating the funding that it took in order to watch the performances, as well as the pizza for everyone! Julie, thank you for the amazing games and prizes. Everyone had such a good time, they didn't even notice the $50 bill at the end of the table until half way through! Brian Cormier, thank you for ordering and picking up the pizza and watching the kids while they were outside. It was fun to see them singing their parts and seeing how much of the show they still remember, as well as the game of hide-and-seek!
Below is a list of events until Christmas. We will be reaching out to those who have not volunteered yet and trying to find that perfect job that you might enjoy before the end of the semester.
