Band Notes

Ø  Through band education we strive to develop responsibility and respect for self and others, commitment to others and to a goal, teamwork, and the value of effort. Our mission is to create responsible, caring citizens and a strong musical community through the development of these values. Band students demonstrate them by coming prepared, being focused and cooperative, being dependable and honest and making a sincere effort.
