Band Banquet

SENIORS-We want your baby pictures and other pictures of you growing up! Please send your pictures to by April 20 for you to be included in the banquet slideshow.

Individual Pictures

If you ordered individual pictures from Image, those are being handed out today. We noticed there is a problem with the full band picture and that some of the rows have been omitted. I have already contacted the photo company and requested that corrected pictures be re-sent.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see many of you at our performances this week!
