Weekly Reminders: April 3rd

A big “CONGRATULATIONS” to our Varsity Winterguard and their directors, Danny Martinez, Katie Navarro and Jorge Ortega for an outstanding performance in the NTCA Championships held this past Saturday.  While we did not achieve the result we were hoping for, we appreciate the group’s efforts throughout the season!

“Thanks” to all who came out to support our jazz bands at the “Evening of Jazz” concert held this past Friday night.  We had a great time performing and look forward to our next performance, “Jazz Under the Stars” which will be held Thursday, May 4 at 6:30 PM in the Stadium.
