3rd 9-Weeks Grades

Grades should be updated on Monday afternoon for the 9 weeks. If you are missing something, and are eligible for make up, please take care of this before Thursday afternoon. See Mr. L if you have any questions.

After-School Jazz Ensemble Update 

All members who have taken part in our After-School ensemble will receive the attached document on Monday in their concert ensemble class. Please take a moment to review and understand the importance of attendance at scheduled rehearsals as we prepare for four upcoming performances. Those who are consistent in their attendance will be eligible to perform for the remainder of the Spring 2015 semester. Since its inception, the After-School Jazz Ensemble has been a great addition to the AHS Band program and it is our desire to ensure it continues this positive direction.

Weekend Fundraisers

Thank you to all who helped at both our Apopka Fair Parking  and OrlandoFest events. Special thanks to Mr. Bill Spiegel for reaching out and connecting our program with the parking opportunity. Congrats to each participant on a job well done! Accounts will be updated soon when the donation checks are received.

State Concert MPA @ Daytona News-Journal Center 

Members of the Concert Band & Symphonic Band are invited to attend this event with us on Wednesday, April 22nd. However, there is a caveat! Members will receive their invite in three weeks if they have ONE (1) or less absence, OR TWO (2) or less tardies to class. Tardies are defined as not being seated, ready to perform with all gear when the countdown clock reached 0:00. (3 minutes after tardy bell.) Students should physically be in the room before the actual tardy bell rings.

Our Wind Symphony will perform on the afternoon of the 22nd and we would love to have each of our winds and percussion performers in attendance with us to learn and grow from the process. There will be many fine ensembles in attendance and performing at this event for us to hear and enjoy.


Coming soon…… SUMMER/FALL DATES TO BOOKMARK! Check back during Spring Break! Can you believe it? It is back before you know it! GET READY!
