Thank you for everything that you have done to make this past year so successful!  To our graduating seniors—best wishes and “ya’ll come back and see us soon!”  To everyone else—have fun, get some rest, and don’t forget how to toot that horn, hit that drum, or twirl that flag!  See most of you July 22nd!

“Doc”
Dr. Jerry Markoch, Director of Bands
