Good Evening Band Families!

Congratulations to the students for being awarded a II at District OMEA Large group Concert Band competition!  The students were given very positive comments from the judges on the judging sheets!  One comment in particular was "This good band is so close to being a great band.  It's all about making music the art that it should be.  Please never pass up an expressive opportunity."  

Thank you also to the parents who baked desserts for Fridays dinner that was enjoyed by the students, parents who helped serve the meal, and also to Michele Ferguson for organizing the dinner.
