WHAT A GREAT WEEK FOR THE BLUE DARTER MARCHING BAND! WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!

We would be remiss if we did not take a moment to say THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible: our Band Staff, our Blue Darter Army of Parents, and every person who has had any hand in making this a successful season! WE THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE TO PUSH OUR PROGRAM TOWARDS SUCCESS!

Straight Superior rating. Wow. This represents a lot of hard work and dedication throughout the course of the season and is a great (almost) culmination to our Marching Band experience! Now….. ON TO THE PLAYOFFS!!!!! Let’s go get a “W” and get another State Title! See you on Friday!

IE, GYB!

Congratulations! 

Congrats to Justin Talley on earning a chair in the All State Concert Band! We are proud of your efforts, and all of those who auditioned for this prestigious experience! IE, GYB! All-County Auditions are in ONE WEEK! Keep working folks! IE, GYB!

Calendars 

Get them while they last! $10 EACH! Tons of coupons for businesses in our community! Each calendar represents $7 that comes back to our program! ($3.50 goes towards student account.) Have your student check out as many as you can sell! THEY WILL BE GONE SOON! Makes a great stocking-stuffer!!!!!!!!
