Thank you to everyone who came out to support our bands at the Spring Band Concert last week Thursday! We really enjoyed our last performance with our seniors.
Our Band Awards Banquet was a huge success! A very special thank you to all our parent volunteers and staff who helped with our Band Awards Banquet and Ceremony. We are so pleased and thankful to have such dedicated Band Boosters who work to fundraise what’s needed so that we can recognize our students for all their accomplishments and provide them with food, music, and dancing so that they could celebrate an amazing year! Last night’s event wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our parents. Thank you to our Band Booster Board: President Anthony Rowtie, Vice President Caridad Rojas, Treasurer Erika Guerra, Secretary Dana Rowtie, Head Chaperone Eileen Fuentes, Head of Truck Crew Miguel Font (DJ Font), Head of Uniforms Kristian Newton, and incoming Vice President Sandra Llorca.
