Parent & Teacher Conferences

My band students range from 6th graders up to seniors. There are over 100 students in the band program. During the course of our 6-hour long parent/teacher conference tonight, only 10 parents walked through the band room door. It is frustrating that more parents do not care about their child's education.

The high school band was given a reward day today due to their hard work in preparation for their concert band assessment concert. Their performance was on Saturday and they gave an excellent performance.

On the agenda: Rock Band, Apples to Apples and pizza.

Mission accomplished!
