Keeping with our tradition!

Our band is well known throughout that area as being excellent. We have received positive feedback from many schools, organizations and our local Professional Teams. This success comes as a result of our students and our families and their involvement and commitment to maintain our reputation. To help keep up this tradition, please consider stepping forward in any way for any position. We would like every family to participate in some way to support our kids. It is always a great time and a great way to make friends and support your kids. Any questions please let someone know and we will be happy to give you information. You are what makes our band so special!  Join the fun and help out.

Band Festival - Thank You!

Many thanks to you all for your time and hard work during the band festival! It is generous, hard working people like you that directly contribute to the success of the festival. This could not have run as smoothly as it did without all of you there helping. This turned out to be an amazing event!

Senior Recognition is fast approaching and we would like our seniors to be recognized in the best possible way. Poster decorating will be held this week at the Pleasant Hills Presbyterian Church on Tuesday and Wednesday in room 225 and on Thursday in the Boardroom from 6:30-9 pm.  Please contact Dawn Zacharias and let her know if you will be making your senior’s poster.  Any band parent is welcome to come and help make posters for students whose parents are not able to attend.  Senior students are NOT to attend sign making. Thank you and we look forward to Senior Poster Decorating!
