Well, this is it.  Here we are, the last day of the school year.  I hope you’ve had a fun filled, and rewarding journey in music this year.  In 24 years, it’s one of the most successful and enjoyable years of my career. You kids are great- Ms. Fillingham and myself want to thank all of you for your hard work.  Looking forward to next year, as we build on the progress we’ve made this year.  Next year’s students should expect an email as get closer to band camp, as well as confirming varsity spots for next year.  Get lots of rest over the summer, and we will see most of you in late July.  Go Marching Indians!!!
Mr. Reed
