A message from your Drum Major - Ella Pusey:
Hey seniors! As we are making our plans for the future, Mrs. Gill has asked me to create a board to recognize our seniors and their future plans in the band hall. This can include acceptance into college, tech school, military service, or whatever your future plans may hold. If you'd like to please fill out the survey questions from the QR code posted in the band halland bring me (Ella) a 4x6 picture of you to be displayed on the board. This is completely optional but it would be really cool if you did it!
