Director’s Notes!

Hello Band Families!

Thank you to all the students for a great first two days of school! It was a pleasure meeting all our new band family members and reconnecting with those who are back for another year!

Congratulations to the Marching Titans on their great performance at the football game on Friday! We’re looking forward to putting the rest of the show on the field! 

There is still time to sign up for the spring break trip to Orlando! Information packets are available in the band room! If you are interested in going, register on the Bob Rogers website as soon as possible since payments are becoming due, and we would like to give the travel company an accurate count. Every student in the band is eligible for this trip!

We would like to wish everyone a successful school year! Let’s make this our best year yet!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

One Band, One Family!
