Congratulations to all our concert bands on having a very successful District Concert Band MPA! Wind Symphony earned an overall Superior rating and both Symphonic Winds and Wind Ensemble earned straight Superior ratings and qualified for State! State Concert Band MPA will be held at Broward College Central in Davie, Florida on April 20, 21, and 22. We will discuss dates for State in class this week.
Congratulations to our Dance Team who earned Elite High Gold ratings on both performances and the Outstanding Performance Award with their Contemporary routine at the Bravo Dance Competition!

Here are last week’s Musicians and Performers of the Week for Jazz Band and Auxiliary. Honorable Mentions are Eddie Feliciano (jazz 2), Malia Hubbell (jazz 1), and Damara Georges (auxiliary). Musicians/Performer of the Week is Dylan Hubbell (jazz 2), Mathyas Jones (jazz 1), and Jillian Paquette (auxiliary). For band, instead of individual Musicians of the Week, we’re going to recognize Sections of the Week for each concert band. Sections of the Week are Trumpets from Wind Symphony, Clarinets from Wind Ensemble, Trumpets from Symphonic Winds, and Wind Ensemble Percussion from Percussion. Congratulations and keep up the good work!
Here's what you need to know for our upcoming events.
This Week’s Schedule:
Texas Trip Medication, Band Plastic Bags, Auxiliary Duffle Bags, and Toiletries (Past Due):
Texas Trip Student Carry-on Bags (Thurs. 3/9): All students must turn in their carry-on bags by 7:00AM on Thursday. These bags will be stored in Room 833 overnight. Our school administration and the Collier County Sheriffs Dept. will inspect all bags. Parents, please check your student’s bag before they report to the school and remove any unnecessary contents. Students are allowed to bring 1 carry-on and 1 personal bag (ie. A purse or small backpack) on their flight. Students and chaperones will not be allowed to check-in their bags at the airport as this will delay the rest of the group. Carry-on bags shouldn’t exceed 22 x 14 x 9 inches
