What a FANTASTIC start to the new SEASON!

I hope all the students had an awesome time last week at band camp!! It sure looked like they did! They put in a ton of effort and time last week that I have no doubt this year’s performances are going to be great!

Thank you to all our families that donated for the BBQ on Wednesday and that came to kick-off the new season with the marchers! We hope you had a great time!
