Cleaning Out Your Closets for Easter Seals

Well, the nice weather is upon us and it is time to start thinking about changing the closets for summer! What a perfect time since the NRBB ‘Fill the Truck’ for Easter Seals event is Saturday, April 23 from 9-6 by the Board of Education.

So please help the marching band and Easter Seals by pulling the small, worn, torn cloth items (ANY cloth items) and bring them to the collection on Saturday, April 23rd!

Here is a great article about the event. Share it with your friends and family and ask them to donate too!

We also still have a few shifts available to volunteers. If you would like to help, click here and sign up.

As always, thanks for all you do!

It looks like our band members had an awesome experience in Florida. The weather was great, the parade was exciting, and the lifelong memories were made by many. It is hard to believe that we have begun the final stretch of the 2015-16 school year.

It looks like over the next 8 weeks we will spend a fair amount of time together with our final 4 events. These events include State Band Contest, Band O Rama, Band Banquet and the Memorial Day Parade. We definitely are a busy band nation! Please check the director’s page often to stay on top of it all! If you haven't bookmarked this page, please do so. It is a very handy resource.
