LGPE - March 19

Congratulations to the Concert Band on recieving an Excellent rating at LGPE.  Also, congratulations to the Wind Symphony for receiving Superior ratings at this year's LGPE.

I would like to express sincere thanks and gratitude to the students for their flexibility with yesterday and performances on stage. It was a long day but a good one overall with both groups.  Thank you for the work you put in so far this year and let's continue to work to finish the year strong!

I would also like to thank each of the Chaperones who volunteered to come help.  The day would not have been as successful without you being here.  We had several parents who volunteered to help out and I'm grateful for your support of these fine young men and women!

So for another year of LGPE success, I again thank everyone who made it possible!

Mr. Owens

How Marching Band prepares you for the CORPORATE WORLD?!?!?!

I know that we can tout the importance of participating in Band but here's an article from the perspective of someone who has worked in the Business world and why students who participate in Marching Band make the best candidates for jobs in the Corporate World.  Please read through and share with others because what we do matters.  It matters so much to our students, our school and our community so let's make sure people know why their support is vital!
