GHS Spring Band Concert featuring United Sound

The GHS band performed 11 songs for their family and friends at the Spring Band Concert on Tuesday evening at the GISD Auditorium. One of the songs featured special performances by the four United Sound band students and three 8th grade clarinet players. The United Sound band members are Mr. Firth's students, who have been practicing weekly with their band mentors throughout the year. Each United Sound student worked with three mentors who helped them learn about music and prepare each of them for their performance to close out the year. We look forward to continuing the United Sound program again next year!

Our GJH golfers got the chance to hit the course on Thursday in a practice tournament. These students have been practicing after school this spring, and got to put what they learned into action on a beautiful day at the Gainesville Municipal course.
