Quote of the Month:

Talent is cheaper than table salt.  
What separates the talented individual 
from the successful one is 
a lot of hard work.

2017-18 BAND CLASS SCHEDULE
Just FYI, there will be some changes in the class schedule 
this coming school year:

-High School band will be 1st period. This means that Middle School marching band members will report to the High School first thing in the morning.

-6th grade band at Willow Vista will still be in the morning, but there will only be one class period.

-Back at the High School, there will be a dual-credit music class in the middle of the day (Music History, I think... more info coming soon).

-Middle School band classes will be at the end of the day.

Don't forget to check the band's Google calendar for upcoming dates, including Color Guard Camp (July 17-20) and the Band Parent Meeting (July 17).  

See y'all soon!
