Week 2 in Review

On Monday, the bands were treated to a special performance by the U.S. Army Brass Brigade from Fr. Bragg, NC. The band consisted of 8 players who played unique arrangements of popular tunes. The students had a great experience and provided great energy. During the performance, the soldiers spoke to the students about the Army Bands and their mission as military musicians.

Thanks to all parents in attendance at the Parent Tour Night yesterday. We have a lot of exciting things happening this year. If you have any questions, please email me.

Next Saturday, September 8, is our Homecoming performance at Hanson Stadium. Please come out and show your support.
