You MUST dress in red, white and blue! You can go crazy with the decorations – even on your instrument.

From our Band Boosters:

A reminder for all students that have signed up and anyone that may be interested in signing up for our July 4th L.E.D. Fundraiser:


Students are to meet outside the Middle School gym entrance at 7:30pm to get paired with their partner, get their money pouches and merchandise. Students will be selling their L.E.D. items until fireworks begin. At that time they will return to Mrs. Keene at the MS gym entrance with what they have left over and parents will be able to pick them up at that time. All profits that the students make, minus the cost of merchandise, will be going to their student band accounts.


Please call Sherri Keene at 269-921-0506 or slkeene32@yahoo.com if your child is a High School student (including new freshmen) and would be interested in selling at this fundraiser or if you may have any questions.

First Music Rehearsal coming up!

Our first "Classical Caliente!" rehearsal is Tuesday, July 11th from 6:30-8:30pm. Rehearsal is at the MIDDLE SCHOOL band room. This is a required rehearsal for all high school band students. If you are unable to make this rehearsal, please email Mrs. Rosselit (even if you already talked to her) so you can be excused.


We do have extra music - you should bring your flip folio.
