PICTURES NEEDED

Attention All Band Families:

In preparation for the end of the year band banquet – we are asking all families to please send any pictures you might have from this marching band season.  Each year our band historian prepares a very special slideshow that is played during the awards ceremony following the banquet. All band students look forward to this slideshow so the more pictures we have…the more memorable the slideshow can be!

Senior Parents: Please send in a baby picture and senior picture of your band student!

All pictures can be emailed directly to the band historian, Morgan Booker, at morganbooker07@gmail.com

Thank you in advance!
