Director’s Notes!

Hello Band Families!

Congratulations to the Marching Titans on a great performance this weekend at the Victor J. Andrew Marching Band Invitational! Thank you to all the volunteers who helped to make this performance possible! 

Happy Homecoming Week! As is our tradition, Friday after school, Marching Band members can come to the band room to decorate their instruments with Blue and Gold streamers for the game and parade! Rehearsal will start promptly at 5:00pm in full uniform so we can get to the pep rally on time. 

I hope you all have a safe and happy Homecoming! 

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

One Band, One Family!
