THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

For a great Jazz/S&E experience! We had a great weekend of performances and service to our district. We are GRATEFUL for all that each member and parent gave in support of three days worth of performances. And one of them without WATER! 🙂 We made it!

On a serious note, there was much support given and we are most grateful. Service to others is an incredible skill set to learn and many of our performers took part in a huge undertaking by facilitating a campus 20 performance rooms for over 20+ hours of non-stop performance!

Musically, our program was quite successful in that EACH PERFORMER was part of an ensemble that performed on Friday and Saturday. We brought home almost 150 superior medals and had a great representation of the growth that is taking place within the AHS Band! We also congratulate our Jazz Ensemble on earning Straight Superior Ratings for their performance on Thursday evening! Here are links to view their performance!

Fundraiser Update! 

The Mixed-Bag fundraiser should have been turned in!

Our “Dining out with the Darters” series kicks off this week with our CHIPOTLE SPIRIT NIGHT ON WEDNESDAY! TELL YOUR SERVER “I AM WITH THE BAND” TO HELP US EARN FUNDS!

We have FIVE, yes, FIVE UPCOMING SPIRIT NIGHTS IN OUR AREA! SEE THE FLYER BELOW AND SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, NEIGHBORS, AND ANYONE YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH! These are great opportunities to support our community businesses and they in turn support our program. A HUGE THANK YOU TO MRS. FIELDS FOR SETTING UP EACH OPPORTUNITY ON BEHALF OF THE APK BAND!
