New School Year Ushers in Record Numbers

The Patriot Band and Guard began a new school year with a bang. The Jazz Band performed several times over the summer and one highlight was a performance at the first corporation teacher meeting of the year. The Marching Band sizzled on the black top over during band camp and pushed through a good portion of their competitive show "Monstrosity". As the school year began the program saw a large increase in band numbers, with 35 freshmen coming into the high school band class and over 70 new beginning band members. 7th-12th enrollment has surpassed 150 students for the first time in the past five years, with lots of room to grow!
