Band Preview, Booster Meeting, Ice Cream Social

Hello band parents,

It’s hard to believe that band camp has come and gone … and the first day of school is just around the corner!

As has become the tradition the past couple years, we’d like to combine our first Band Booster meeting with an exciting marching band preview immediately following … and then some ice cream at our annual Ice Cream Social.   Mr. Souder and our band staff believe that the students have gotten more accomplished during the 2 week band camp this year than previous years.  You should be proud of your students, they should be proud of themselves for all they accomplished at camp and I think we are all looking forward to the show preview!

So please mark your calendars now:
