CONGRATS to our Winterguard Team!!! 

Not only did they move up to a more competitive division, they took 1st Place at every competiton, earning them a place in the Championship Finals where they placed 10th overall!  

“I'm very proud of their hard work this season! And a BIG THANK YOU goes out to Jenny, Kristin, and all of the guard parents who car pooled, uniforms, equipment, make up, hair, early wake up calls, late pick ups and supported these young performers every step of the way this season! We have GREAT students because we have GREAT parents! Thank you!”

~Mr. Soto


Last call!  If you are interested in one of the 7 Band Parent Council positions for next school year, please send Arlene Vinzon an email. Several of our key positions this year are held by parents of seniors, so we are really looking for some new volunteers to serve in these key roles!

Please provide your feedback on our annual Comedy Night! So far, we have only received 14 survey responses, and we really want to hear from as many of you as possible so we can make improvements for the future. Here's the survey link again-

Now, are you ready to volunteer? 
Tonight, our current Band Parent Council will share details of 
how YOU can get involved next year with the band.

We have many graduating seniors this year and an incoming group of 9th graders who are about to join our extended band family! Plus, we have a core of dedicated, passionate students who remain to welcome our newest members and lead the band into the next season. 

And of course, as our students shift focus, so do our parents, and it's time to consider who would like to volunteer for the 2018/2019 school year. 

Below are the descriptions of the seven Band Parent Council Board positions. Although different responsibilities fall under specific board positions, please know that the Board works as a team and responsibilities can be shifted to different board positions to better fit the talent and bandwidth of each member. 

If you are interested in any position, please let Arlene Vinzon know, and if you have any questions, you can contact the individual who currently holds each position. 
 
Thank you in advance for considering a position on the Band Parent Council Board! If one of these roles doesn't speak to you, trust that there are so many other ways to help our band be successful. Every role, job and ounce of volunteer spirit add up to make the ESHS Band a beacon of Eagle Pride!
