Why are we do earn our 3rd quarter?

We have over 100 people in band. We need to make sure every member knows their part and is equally contributing to this band. Sometimes students fake play and are not participating in the overall sound of the ensemble. This is completely unacceptable. Student are required to perform each piece in front of a Director from memory. By ensuring that every student is properly contributing, our ensemble will only sound better than before. This is what we want. We must raise the expectations.

Our website has gone through some MAJOR upgrades! Check it often!

Parents! Also don't forget that we have a monthly Booster meeting! It's on the First Thursday of every month! Check the CHARMS CALENDAR for details! We would love for you to join us!
