PARENTS: THANK YOU FOR HELPING!
We hope you are enjoying watching your students perform and meeting other band parents! From getting the equipment and instruments to and from the game, to feeding the students, to helping them with their uniforms, it takes a small army to make sure each performance runs smoothly. We are so thankful for each and every one of you who support the band!
